    Yes obviously.You can remove it with ease.The best tool to do the same, use "Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) Files Removal Tool".To work with this tool, you must have SP1 installed.To completely remove this folder from your computer,follow the below given stops:
    • Click on "Start" button.
    • In the search box, type "VSP1CLN.exe" and then press "Enter" key.
    • You will see a command prompt.Press "Y" which stands for yes.It will perform the clean up.

    Re: WinSxs folder had captured too much space

    Hi,

    The size of the Winsxs is troubling you but that is not an issue in real as,

    Winsxs folder, stores multiple copies of dllís in order to let multiple applications run in Windows without any compatibility problem.

    Newer version of this file is a part of the OS, but a particular application requires a particular older version for running, then the older version from the winsxs folder will be used, leaving the newer version in its place, for other applications which may require it at a later point in time.

    So obviously you [COLOR=#215AC3 !important][COLOR=#215AC3 !important]cannot [COLOR=#215AC3 !important]delete[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] this directory or move it . Nor is it advisable to delete anything , as such a step could probably make your applications un-workable or even break the system! If you have many applications installed, you can expect to have a huge sized winsxs folder. This WinSxs folder cannot reside on any other volume than the system volume. This is because of the NTFS hard link . If you try to move the folder, it may result in Windows updates, service packs, features, etc, not installing correctly.

    Thanks.
