    I want to safely remove all possible files and folders on a Windows 7 AIO install disc. I am not integrating anything special but updates, ie11 to install.wim; mass storage drivers and USB 3.0 drivers to the boot.wim file.
    Obviously I'm referring to those files / folders not needed during installation.
    Brainstorms very welcome!!!! :D

    The only ones you need in the DVD are


    \ boot
    \ efi
    bootmgr
    Bootmgr.efi
    \ sources \ boot.wim, install.wim, setup.exe
