    Where is that based on? Cleanup will gain approx. 3GB on average, online, and approx 1000MB offline.

    Online cleanup will be ran periodically by windows.

    If you upgrade from say 18975 to 18980 & run Disk Cleanup 18975 is 17 GB all by it's self.

    That's cleanup previous windows install files*, doesn't cause the discussed problems. Windows Update files cleanup caused the discussed problems.

    *ps. on the IP vm's it's 22-27GB.

    What is the exact path of the folder in which you run the script? And on what host OS?

    Although that should work, but try to put the "18362.356_amd64_en-us_professional_cd8222e6_convert_virtual" folder on the root of a partition/drive?

    Probably to deep filepath, exceeding the max allowed characters.

    Yes, it does appear that the author stopped work on that tool back in May. But, I just used it yesterday and it worked perfectly fine.

    However, in the future, Microsoft could possibly change something and then the tool would no longer work because it isn't being updated.

    make sure Explorer.exe (or antivirus program) is not locking the mount directory)

    OK, I disabled anti virus (to no avail). I then disabled Explorer.exe and it worked. I'm using Win 18362.10019.
    This is a first for me regarding ISO creation. :rolleyes:

    You don't need to disable Explorer, just don't open it during the process
    i cannot control system handles :)

    OK, I disabled the read only feature to the folder. Tried a clean launch without explorer running. It worked. Except, I'm pretty sure that iv'e left explorer running more than once. So I tried again with explorer running and a folder open. Worked like a charm. I'm still not sure but it seems to be a permission issue. Anyways, I get the idea. Thanks for your help abbodi and merci coléoptère. [​IMG]
