Win sXs folder size issues
Users who using windows server 2k8 , vista and windows7 may have asked why the size of the folder increased from a few Megabytes to Gigabytes(5 to 16GB) and want to know is it safe to delete the Winsxs folder?.
What is win sxs?,it is Windows Side by Side(Side-by-side technology is a standard for executable files in Microsoft Windows XP and later versions that attempts to reduce DLL
complication.),is really the entirety of the whole OS referring to the concept of hosting the same files in different versions in the operating system (Hard linked ).
The only option to reduce the file size of that folder safely is to remove software from the
operating system that is not needed anymore.
