Description

This a guide on using the dism.exe utility to clean up Windows Updates and temporary files on Windows Server 2012 Core using PowerShell.

  • From the command prompt, open a PowerShell session:
    powershell
    
  • Use the /AnalyzeComponentStore to analyze the size of the Component Store (WinSxS folder) in Windows:
    dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore
    
  • To remove superseded and unused system files from a system, use the /StartComponentCleanup parameter:
    dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    
  • Use the /ResetBase switch with the /StartComponentCleanup parameter of dism.exe, to remove all superseded versions of every component in the component store:
    dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
