Re: FOLDER C:\Windows\winsxs 9 GB

Why is it that when people first see something on their hard disk they don't
think "what does it do?" they think "how do I delete it?"

Those articles explain what the folder does, why it's so big, and why
deleting random parts of it is probably a bad idea.

You neither need nor want to delete this system folder. Leave it alone.

For the same reason you'll get support requests wanting to "disable
off-line mode" to resolve an unstable network connection.
