This article says that one can use DISM /Remove to remove features from disk, changing the status to "Disabled with Payload Removed" instead of just "Disabled." When I tried, it said:
C:\Windows\system32>dism /Online /Disable-Feature /featurename:OEMHelpCustomization /Remove Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool Version: 6.1.7600.16385 Image Version: 6.1.7601.18489 Error: 87 The remove option is not recognized in this context.
This article says you can only do it on windows 8. Is there a way on Windows 7? (I have an up-to-date Windows 7 Professional according to Windows Update.)
I'm trying to reduce the size of the large winsxs directory. (I already disabled hybrid sleep, removing the hiberfil.sys file.)
