The solution to your problem is to buy bigger disks. And Windows 2008 R2 on a 30 GB volume? You can bit the bullet now or later. Hehe, ok then, thanks for all the advice! Work-Around: If you need to reclaim this space, your safest bet is to avoid “deleting” anything, but to instead, move this folder and all it’s files. Junctions are recognized at the file systemlevel as an alias entry in the FSTAB.

Therefore, it’s transparent to all programs, including the OS itself. If you make the newpath relative, you’ll be able prevent breaking the link, as long as you move BOTH the link and target TOGETHER and maintain their relative paths. Another GREAT alternative is a free handy utility I’ve been using for years called “Link Shell Extension”. LSE allows you to create symlinks, hardlinks, junctions, smartcopies, smartclones, smart mirrors, smart moves, splices, multiple sources, and bunch of other stuff I found too confusing to read, frankly. But, it’s a brilliant free product that creates a Windows Explorer context menu that allows you right-click on your LINK-TARGET folder then drag it to where you’d like to create the actual link. You can of course rename the link to anything you’d like. I solved it by moving that folder to another partition.

Drive Z is on a different partition. Create a link for the new folder. It creates a link with name winsxs_1. When it starts, select Repair your OS, NOT Install. It will pop up the System Recovery Options window. Select the option “Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows”. Your C drive may not be C at this time.

Go to the drive that your OS was installed. And grant administrator to have full control. And then check which folder has been updated. That means the OS is using the new location. Per this technet article you should be able to copy the proper clnmgr files out of the winsxs folders.
