%SystemRoot%\ServicePackFiles

Recommended Posts

The new version can clean the Windows HotFix Uninstaller listings in your Windows folder.

 

An entry (Feb 14) at http://www.edbott.com/weblog/ suggests not deleting the following one:

 

"%SystemRoot%\ServicePackFiles contains the actual downloaded files for SP2. Do not delete these files; they?re essential for Windows File Protection to automatically repair system files if they become corrupted or replaced by an incorrect version."

 

Any thought from the developer or others to have an option to hold onto this paticular one?

Good question, and a responsible move to do some investigating.

 

The Windows HotFix Uninstallers....uninstall hotfixes. If you don't want to uninstall then you don't need the uninstaller packages. Your systemroot service pack files are not cleaned by CC. Your service pack files are in C:\Windows\system32\..... and you should not delete anything in your systemroot.
