In their infinite wisdom, Microsoft decided not to include by default, a much loved tool called disc cleanup, in server 2008. :mad::confused:
You have to install the "Desktop experience" in order to get it. However this also installs the following, and completely unnecessary rubbish:
Windows Media Player
Windows Aero™ and other desktop themes
Video for Windows (AVI support)
Windows Photo Gallery
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
I feel silly for not even thinking of that. Thank you bio. :)
