Windows: clean the WinSXS folder

0

The C: \ Windows \ WinSXS folder is the location of the component store files that allows for the addition of features, roles, and updates.

With time the repertoire can become very large.

I will explain how to clean it.

I also advise you to clean this folder on your reference images with capturing them.

To clean the WinSXS folder, we will use Dism which is the management and maintenance tool for deployment images.

Open a command prompt as an administrator.
