    Hello everybody!
    I searched all over and can't find anything even close to answering this question.
    Say I have a package list from Dism /Get-Packages
    Which files does the package contain?
    I know there are MUM and CAT files in \Windows\Servicing and CAT file has hashes but where the list of files is stored?
    When I remove the package with Dism /Remove-Package (for example after unhiding it), how does it know which files to remove?

    Thank you in advance
