    disc cleanup

    1803 cumulative updates take so long to be cleaned up with disc cleanup.
    I do so b/c I want to have a clean image in case I have to recover.
    Is there a faster way to clean up these updates?

    Do you mean these ? I agree it does take awhile, this 1.23 GB took almost 10 minutes for me.

    Do you have the OS on a SSD which would be faster?

    The process is understandably slow even on SSD.

    Ya it`s no big deal, you start the process then turn all your attention to the World Cup game that`s currently playing

    I have a hardware raid 0 setup and Disk Cleanup takes a while cleaning up Windows Updates.... just a Microsoft thing.

    Try to run this as admin: Windows Cleanup It performs a manual cleanup before running disk cleanup.

    This line removes all system restore points and file backups, remove it, if you do not want that.
    vssadmin delete shadows /for=c: /all /quiet

    Disk cleanup runs component cleanup, which takes the most time.

    It seems this is a duplicate topic/thread.
