Windows 7: Can't remove Service Pack Backup Files with Disk Cleanup or DISM

Can't remove Service Pack Backup Files with Disk Cleanup or DISM

Hello everybody,

I have used RT Seven Lite to shrink the Windows 7 Ultimate installation because I m using a netbook with a small 8GB SSD.

This is why I kinda need to remove those backup files because I really need the space.

I have tried several things to solve this issue.
-Tried both a slipstreamed SP1 and a manual SP1 installation
-used elevated command prompt with the command dism /online /cleanup-image /spsuperseded /hidesp
-tried the same from a boot up command prompt (Windows installation DVD)

I guess I removed a part necessary to remove th backup files, but I don't know which one and I don't know how to fix it.
I hope somebody has some new ideas for me.
Thanks in advance



Here is some additional info copied out of the command prompt:

Hello c05Mo,

You would only be able to use the SP1 disk cleanup tool to remove the SP1 backup files if you installed Windows 7 without SP1, then installed SP1 afterwards. If you installed Windows 7 with SP1 included, then you will not be able to use the SP1 disk cleanup tool.

As for manually installing SP1, I can only guess that it's something to do with how you shrank Windows 7 when you slipstreamed it. Are you able to try installing Windows 7 with a normal retail installation DVD, install SP1, then use the SP1 disk cleanup tool?

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

Hey Shawn, thanks for your reply.
As I said I have tried installing the SP without slipstreaming it.

I have to shrink Windows because of the small 8GB SSD in my netbook. So after I ran into the problem with my slipstreamed Windows I reinstalled with a still trimmed version, but no SP1 slipstreamed. I then installed SP1 over Windows Update and that's where I am now.

I hope that cleared that up.
Thanks,
Andy

Andy,

Yep, I understood what you meant.

I was just pointing out why if installed with SP1 included in the first section.

In the second section, I was just pointing out that it may be the trimmed version causing the problem depending on what you did to trim it. That's all.

Hello Bergonius, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If Windows 7 was installed with the SP1 already included, then you will not be able to use the SP1 Disk Cleanup Tool. There would be no need to use it anyways since there are no SP1 backups to remove since it was installed along with the OS at the same time.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have same problem as cO5Mo. SP1 was installed with Windows Update and now i cant delete it at all. Not by Cleanup not by command line.

Yeah, you should be able to use the SP1 Disk Cleanup Tool. Did you also get the same error messages?
