13 gigs is not that big for winsxs. A lot of libraries (.Net, etc) live there so it is always on the larger side.

Agree, normal size.

However you can run Disk Cleanup on Server 2012. You may need to install Windows Features to install Disk Cleanup.

Run Disk Cleanup. When it comes up the first time, click on the "cleanup system files" button. This cause it to run again. Now select most all the options and press OK. Allow to finish.

This may reduce winsxs somewhat.

Sometimes the good answer is "that's normal" just like sometimes an answer is "you can't do that."  You may not *like* the answer, but it doesn't make it less correct.

13 GB is a normal size and that is a proper answer.
