What is "x86_microsoft-windows-naturallanguage6" folder in Windows 7?

Hi friends,

Please tell me for what purpose "x86_microsoft-windows-naturallanguage6-..." folder is there in my "winsxs" folder, Windows 7? It's taking 289MB of my hard disk space which i want to save.

Can i remove it? Is it safe to remove it?


Thanks in advance!

idk i don't have this file, but if you're looking to free up some room i'd use disk cleanup(just search it in the start menu), also, i'd recommend priforms crap cleaner (ccleaner).

Hi,
thanks for reply!

I use Disk Cleanup frequently and also CCleaner is installed on my computer.
Actually, for some days i am noticing that the space of C: Drive is decreasing day after day. So, i ran SpaceSniffer tool to see what is there in the C: Drive consuming space. I found this folder there besides some other.
