    Thanks, Josey. The world is full of acronyms, and I thought that was a feature name or something, cause that was my question. Oh, well.

    Does the DISM ResetBase Functionality is enabled by default in Windows 10 or disabled?
    You need to apply this in order to enable ResetBase.
    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide\Configuration" /v "DisableResetbase" /t "REG_DWORD" /d "0" /f

    I tried the cleanup command as shown below which stopped at 20% and reported it had completed successfully. What's happening here?

    That's normal when used without the /resetbase switch.

    Run this first to see if there's anything to cleanup.

    Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore

    Normal, too. the 10% found things to compress/backup/etc., and the 100% (probably creeped along) did the work.

    How to force dism cleanup?


    Hi all...
    I noticed that each time I'm running the DISM sequence checkhealth, scanhealth, restorehealth (if necessary), Sfc /scannow (not sure for this last one), the WinSxS folder size increases continuously (hundred of Megabytes at a time, even if restorehealth is not run!). I find this extremely worrying. Well, is there a trick with gpedit or a registry hack to delete this 30 days delay, blocking me to cleanup the WinSxS folder after running a checking test?
    Thks for any answer.
    Kind regards,
    B.B.

    Hello B.B., and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The 30 days delay only applies to the automatic task. You should be able to manually run the DISM command to clean on demand. Option 3 is the most thorough.
