Problem

c:\windows\winsxs is using a ridiculous amount of space on my drive.

Solution

c:\> Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore

or possibly

c:\> DISM /online /Cleanup-Image /SpSuperseded

Note that this command only seems to work for 2K8R2; 2K8 users should try Compcln.exe

If the Disk Cleanup Wizard is installed, you should be able to find it at cleanmgr.exe

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
