Andrew Berry Development - Windows Vista en Reduce the size of Vista's WinSxS Folder <p>I've been looking for this for a long time. On Windows Vista, there is a folder called <a href=",-Vista-and-Server-20032008.html">"WinSxS"</a>, which stands for "Windows Side by Side". It's a part of the move to a "component" based architecture, where the WinSxS folder contains multiple versions of a component such as Windows Media Player or IIS, and the appropriate versions are hard-linked into the system. Unfortunately, Windows is stupid (surprise!), and provides no easy way to remove old versions.</p> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-links"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Related Links:&nbsp;</div> <a href="">What is the WINSXS directory in Windows 2008 and Windows Vista and why is it so large?</a> </div> <div class="field-item"> <div class="field-label-inline"> Related Links:&nbsp;</div> <a href=",-Vista-and-Server-20032008.html">Demystifying the WinSxS directory in Windows XP, Vista and Server 2003/2008</a> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows Vista Thu, 30 Oct 2008 13:23:12 +0000 andrew 59 at
