New Windows 7 feature in KB 2852386 reclaims wasted space on your C: drive

Microsoft's new patch lets you clean up Windows bloat from earlier patches and quickly reclaim 1GB to 3GB of space

Think of the WinSxS folder as a Windows elephants' graveyard. When Microsoft patches Windows, it sticks the obsolete versions of earlier files and their settings in the WinSxS folder -- typically C:\Windows\WinSxS. That way, if you want to roll back a patch, Windows Update can pull out a previous version of your machine's programs and settings, then restore them properly...

Thanks for the heads up, removed around 3GB of cruft on my system :)
(edit: 7GB on my other one :eek: This is a must-run if you have an 128GB or less SSD)

I stopped using the Windows Disk Cleaner since I discovered CCleaner, but I might start using it again for that feature.
