  • winsxs Folder Size

    hi All

    Running 2 2k8 servers, one R2 one original 2k8

    Both the winsxs folders on these boxes are getting very big.

    I have seen that there are cleanup tools for vista SP 1 but I cant find anything for 2k8.

    Is anyone aware of anyone aware of anything that will help me shrink these folders please.

    Thanks

    There is an unsupported method in here for moving the folder: http://aspoc.net/archives/2007/12/05...tory-in-vista/

    It is intended for vista but it should also work on 2k8 as commented.
    But as always, (Especially for unsupported methods) always make sure you have backups, don't try on production machines without testing and proceed at your own risk.
