Cleaning up the C: drive

I found an interesting article that helps clear up space on a Windows VM by removing the superseded Service Packs from the Winsxs folder.

You have to run the command from an administrative command shell or powershell box but it does clear up a lot of space on your installation.  This as the post says is not something that I would try first but it is an option for clearing space.
