Thanks!
I see this update (KB2852386) was installed today via the Patch Tuesday updates.
So, what I'm not sure of is, do I need to run "Windows Cleanup" as a followup to this update being installed?
This is in the instructions from the original link about this:

I think it is up-to-you, as now there's a new tab in "other options" disk clean up.

They're just pointing to the method..not telling you have to!

I wouldn't do it right now, mine shows 494Mb to clean.

I'll wait on this "cleanup" to see how it works out and if problems are reported...

One thing you need to be aware of is that this 'patch' almost certainly removes one layer of recovery capability that is currently available (while it also reduces the complexity level of the overall OS).

My inclination is NOT to utilise the capability unless you have good backups, AND need the space (probably because you are using an SSD).

To enable you to roll back to previous updates, updates are stored in the WinSxS store even after they are superseded by later updates. Therefore, after you run the Disk Cleanup wizard, you may be unable to roll back to a superseded update. If you want to roll back to a superseded update that the Disk Cleanup wizard deletes, you can manually install the update.

  • On-demand compaction of the large object heap
  • 64-bit Edit and Continue

You can download and install the language packs from the following Microsoft website:
