Disk Cleanup in Windows Server 2008

If you have a Windows Server 2008 installed, you will not find the Disk Cleanup utility by default. Even when you right click you’re my computer and right click any of the partitions, go into the properties page, still you will not get the option to run the disk cleanup utility.

Disk Cleanup is a feature which does not install on Windows Server 2008 by default like Windows Media Player, desktop themes etc.,

To enable and install these features,

  1. Open Server Manager
  2. Add Features
  3. Add the Desktop Experience Feature
  4. Restart the server

This should do the trick!
