    Removing contents of "C:\windows\servicing\packages"


    Trying to free up some space on c:\ drive. I see several old files in "C:\windows\servicing\packages". They are older files and are mostly .cat and .mum files. Are these safe to remove.?? I searched the tutorial files and index and found nothing. If safe to remove is there a procedure or just delete the files as admin.??

    :)

    The 2004 update removed this folder. C:\Windows\servicing\LCU content, or will it return after the next update?

    May come back when there is a cumulative update released. Be interesting to see if they truly dropped that.
