I noticed the other day that my laptop was running very low on disk space. I did a search of the file system (Vista x64 on a 30GB partition) and found that around 20GB of it was being filled by one folder - C:\windows\winsxs. This folder is a cache of resource files and their versions used by applications for stability reasons. However, there is no safe way to remove any of these files and reduce the size of the partition. So, no choice but to reinstall the OS - I'll give it 40GB this time :(
