The main objective is free space on a C: Drive on windows 2003 server.

The winsxs folder is the only folder I could empty to save space. I used cleanmgr.exe to clean but it always fail.

Is there any other way to clean the winsxs folder?

manually deleting folders inside winsxs that are dated 2009 will cause any issues?

Any help is appreciate it.

Thank you,
