    Disc Cleanup

    In their infinite wisdom, Microsoft decided not to include by default, a much loved tool called disc cleanup, in server 2008.

    You have to install the "Desktop experience" in order to get it. However this also installs the following, and completely unnecessary rubbish:

    Windows Calendar
    Windows Mail
    Windows Media Player
    Windows Aero™ and other desktop themes
    Video for Windows (AVI support)
    Windows Photo Gallery
    Windows SideShow™
    Windows Defender
    Sync Center
    Sound Recorder
    Character Map

    So my question is, does anyone know how to just install disc cleanup on server 2008?

    Do the following :

    * Install the desktop experience on a windows 2008 Test Server.
    * copy c:\windows\system32\cleanmgr.exe to same location on your production server
    * copy c:\windows\system32\EN-US\cleanmgr.exe.MUI to same location on your production server
