After installing Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 and then running every single windows update, the disk space used is huge. This is mainly due to all the hotfix / updates and their rollback data, etc.
I agree that in a production environment I want the ability to rollback any hotfixes that I may add in case something breaks that was not thought of. However, for a fresh installation of windows on a new box I'd rather it was just a clean installation with all the latest updates.
Is there a way of installing all the service packs and updates and then cleaning up the machine afterwards to it uses less disk space?
