I ran your command but it still shows in the regular clean up tool.
Hello Cartel,

Sorry, but you will not be able to delete the SP1 backup files when you installed using a slipstreamed Windows 7 SP1 disc.

See the Warning box at the top of the tutorial for more details on this.

Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File

Sorry, but not since it was a slipstream SP1. If you installed Windows 7 and then the SP1 separately, you would have been able to delete the SP1 backup files.

Disk cleanup of huge amounts of lost space

I found 19GB of <Unknown> space in WinDirStat on my external hard drive. It was also showing as 'unmovable files' in Auslogics disk Defrag.

After some investigation I found 2 huge system restore point files hidden in the System Volume Information folder next to the MountPointManagerRemoteDatabase.

None of these can be deleted even with Admin privilege, but the system restore points can be removed in the System section of the control panel -> Control Panel>System>System Protection>Available Drives>(Select Drive) > Configure>Delete all restore points.

Done. 19GB back to me !

You need to turn off system protection to avoid them from coming back.

Hope this helps you save time
