    Hello Paul,

    The command is still valid to cleanup backup components of a service pack if any are found.

    However, Windows 10 has yet to have a service pack, and doesn't seem it ever will considering how Windows 10 is updated now.

    Option four will most likely never be needed for Windows 10. I added a note under option 4 for this.

    Thank you for the reply, it is appreciated!

    I might add the option to a script that I am writing and put a note that it is not currently valid although it might be at some stage in the future.

    Thanks again.

    Am I right in saying that Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions will ONLY work if the changes made were changes using DISM to an Offline image?

    By this I mean if . . .

    Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

    . . . were run, then Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions will have NO affect because it is run using the Online image?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've never used the /RevertPendingActions option, but you should use the /RevertPendingActions option only in a system-recovery scenario to perform recovery operations on a Windows image that did not boot.

    Example: DISM.exe /Image:C:testoffline /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions

    Use DISM to cleanup WinSxS after Windows Update

    Hi @Brink

    I cannot run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup, tried PowerShell, Safe Mode, as administrator but always get Access Denied.
    I can analyze the ComponentStore:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18363.959]
    (c) 2019 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.18362.900
    Image Version: 10.0.18363.959
    [==========================100.0%==========================]
    Component Store (WinSxS) information:
    Windows Explorer Reported Size of Component Store : 8.88 GB
    Actual Size of Component Store : 7.49 GB
    Shared with Windows : 5.60 GB
    Backups and Disabled Features : 1.89 GB
    Cache and Temporary Data : 0 bytes
    Date of Last Cleanup :
    Number of Reclaimable Packages : 2
    Component Store Cleanup Recommended : Yes
    The operation completed successfully.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

    Image Version: 10.0.18363.959
    [=========== 20.0% ]
    Error: 5
    Access is denied.
    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log

    Any ideas?

    Hello @FrankW,

    If I remember correctly, there was a bug with the DISM command in older builds. Do you have the latest build installed?
