remove files with language code

on Tue 2 Dec - 16:57
hey winter,

there are (for me) at 

Windows\servicing\Packages\
Windows\System32\catroot\

files like:

Server-Help-Package.ClientProfessionalN~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-US~6.1.7601.17514.mum

and so on. i removed all other languages and just kept de-DE. so why not remove all those files?

del /q /f PATH_TO_FILE\*en-US*.*

and all those files are removed

i always do that manually with a batch and never got any problems, even when i keep the component

i.e. i remove all other languages for Search:

Windows\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-SearchEngine-Client-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-US~6.1.7601.17514.mum

but i keep the component at winreducer and i dont remove other necessary files. and after installation Windows Search still works

so most of the files are now cleaned nicely, but they are still 35 en-US left for my german language. also other languages are left at Windows\servicing\Packages\ like for the file:

Code:
Win8IP-Microsoft-Windows-DownlevelApisets-Com-WinIP-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~sl-SI~7.1.7601.16492.mum

Code:
Microsoft-Windows-UIAnimation-WinIP-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~nl-NL~7.1.7601.16492.cat

the same goes for the Windows\System32\catroot\ folder



the files at Windows\servicing\Editions\ are cleaned correctly now
