Removing Win 7 Sp1 Backups


Recommended Posts

Notice: this is to free up disk space after you have decided SP1 works for you! If you use this tip, you will not be able to remove Windows 7 SP1. Savings could be as much as 2-3 GB's.

What IntelGuy says (but the command line is more fun, perhaps funner)!

 

:)

 

Edit: I just looked in Disk Cleanup, and it said I had 0 bytes Service Pack Files which seems odd to me because I just installed it. When I am comfortable with SP1, I will use the command line delete and report back if much/any space is freed up.

I'm not seeing any residual files either, maybe it's because I had the RC installed before taking the final release??

 

Must empty my recycle bin though @ 56gb!!

Good tip! :tup:

 

Only installed W7 SP1 yesterday on my W7 rig, so will leave it for about a week before doing so. :)

W7 SP1 is not check marked when I check to see what needs to be installed/updated. Do I need it? How do I know the difference?
