Check folder size for housekeeping directories

Housekeeping for the local volumes

I used Treesize freeware to review folder size including sub-folders for cleaning unwanted traces of leftovers. I could easily identify where under C Drive (primary partition) folders were over utilized especially when the production servers (Windows 2008 Ent R2) alerted low disc space. I could identify winsxs directory and installer directory over unwanted utilization and could sort the disc space by running DISM commands.

Another freeware is WinDirStat which gives graphical representation of the oversized folders. I used this to clean my laptop

Its all a very handy software free of errors.
