Hi.
I have a sysprepped windows 7 image with the latest updates applied.

Can anyone tell me, what files are safe to delete from the winsxs directory of that image mounted using the Whereisit application??

I would like to maintain update-ability...

Thx.

Well, this in a virtual machine, so its not that critical an issue if I f*** up...
I see in the liting windows 8 thread, files that are mentioned for deletion, but wondering if the same files can be deleted in windows 7...
