Whats the easiest way to clean up the windows SXS Folder.

There should be a button in disk cleanup that says "cleanup system files"?

Try this (from an elevated Command Prompt)...
Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

You'll never get much more than a couple of gig out of that folder - best left well alone.

To see how much space can be reclaimed without deleting anything run the command below:
Using the DISM command in my previous post above will prevent you from uninstalling old updates though.
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore
As long as you're "cleaning" it using one of the Microsoft supported methods you should be fine.
