server 2008 r2 disk cleanup

server 2008 r2 disk cleanup

Our server ran out of space and we couldn't find this. You have to add a Feature via Server Manager called "Desktop Experience". It requires a reboot.

We managed to clear out a folder called "winsxs" in the Windows folder. It contained a ton of updates. You shouldn't go deleting files manually out of here but instead use a tool, here's the command I ran:

DISM /online /Cleanup-Image /SpSuperseded

Apparently you can do much the same within Disk Cleanup.
