Need cleanmgr.exe for Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    We have monitored the servers and found that these servers are having low disk space issue on them. We need to  perform housekeeping on these servers wherever possible & for that we need  cleanmgr.exe for Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 for deleting unwanted files & folders .

    Solution : When searching the internet for more info, all returned answers said I'd have to install the "Desktop experience" feature. But I certainly do not want to enable the "desktop experience" feature on a production server. I do not need Windows Mediaplayer, Photoviewer, etc..

  • Hi,

    I don't think that this is a Windows Performance Toolkit question, or ?
