Disk Cleanup in Windows Server 2008

If you want to install Disk Cleanup (cleanmgr.exe) in Windows Server 2008 the official way, you need to install Windows Media Player. A media player has nothing to do on a server – so here’s a little hint (it works on a 64-bit system, typical installation):

copy %systemroot%\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-cleanmgr_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_c9392808773cd7da\cleanmgr.exe %systemroot%\System32
copy %systemroot%\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-cleanmgr.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_en-us_b9cb6194b257cc63\cleanmgr.exe.mui %systemroot%\System32\en-US

Then you can run it by going to Start->Run, where you type cleanmgr.exe.

Tip: TreeSize is a great tool for figuring out where to clean up.
