Clean ‘Winsxs’ folder in Windows 7 x86-x64


Winsxs can grow to be quite large, a cleanup can help saving space on the system drive.

to Clean \Windows\Winsxs you can go to the command prompt

Start -> Run -> Cmd (Enter)

and press:

dism /online /cleanup-image /spsuperseded


if you’re using the 64 bit of windows 7 goto C:\Windows\SysNative first.

dism /online /cleanup-image /spsuperseded



for me it cleaned almost 40% of winsxs.
