hey mrpotter.

sorry for late reply

u can try this

install windows 8 andupdates hotfix

and then capture the image without sysperp it

now with "whereisit" app start remove manually and carefully whats is duped from the wim image u created [have 2 copies]

if u did it with windows 7 u might know how to do it if not

u should read more about it and try it on vmware after that

install familer apps u might need to see the stability

yea its hard work tho now we don't have good app for winsxs removal from windows8

i might public same clg file i gonna create soon

Hi aviv00.

I haven't gotten around to using this yet, however, I am looking into it now.

I have attached a screen, where for example, there are a number of items that are similar in name:










They are identical as far as: amd64_microsoft-hyper-v-drivers-hypervisor_31bf3856ad364e35_6.2.9200.****

Does that mean I can delete all but one?

If yes, which one should I delete? Do I leave the file/directory with the highest version?

Or should I delete all but one copy of: amd64_microsoft-hyper-v-drivers-hypervisor_31bf3856ad364e35_6.2.9200.16*

And then delete all but one copy of: amd64_microsoft-hyper-v-drivers-hypervisor_31bf3856ad364e35_6.2.9200.20*

Any help would be appreciated.

I don't see any exact identical copies, but a lot of files that are very similar like above.
