    Default Winsxs folder

    Can someone please help me empty this! I can see the restore files in explorer but have tried various programs to delete them but no restore points show in any other program? Tjanks

    winsxs folder is not restore points?

    win 7-8 is meant to clear these automatically but if you want to try empty it manually I found best way was do a disk clean up and check all check boxes, one of them does the winsxs folder think its windows update cleaner of something but tick erm all and run it ;-)

    Sorry, I worded it wrong. Disk cleaner was the first thing I tried but it doesn't list the windows update. I had read that you need to install all updates to get this option which I have done but with no joy! I only want to clear space to upgrade to win 10, if all else fails I will have to do a clean install
