I'm just getting the message...'compcln.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Oh - and Newbie means just that...............

Hello Hanntom, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Do you have the Vista SP2 installed, and ran the command in a elevated command prompt (link at step 1)?

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I lost 1GB after this - does that make any sense?

When I entered Y it began to work and I did not have to press enter. I never got the message that it was completed though, the command prompt window just closed. I tried to run it again to make sure it completed but as soon as I typed in Y the command prompt box closes, no time to hit enter.

Another usefull guide thanks Brink
I need those extra GB's. Using a 120 GB SSD wich fast can go out of space :D
104GB Before
105GB After
This was with a clean install. I only have SP1 "build" in disc so I install SP2 after and clean it up. But also I must still use RTM becouse SP2 final is not available in my language. Dosn't matter, this works fine and I have used it for long time now. But I need a clean install today :p

Hello Carmine,

Have you made any system changes or installed any programs or drivers since installing SP2? It will not auto create a restore point unless it detects a change in the system at that scheduled time.

Hi Shawn,
No changes at all.
I thought a restore point was made everyday.
( it used to because I increased the allocation size for RP's to 50GB ) then I just deleted them all.

it's kewl, thanks for the help.

Hello Schmitman,

You would have had to manually look to see how much free space you had on your C: drive before and after running this to see how much space you have gained instead. It looks like it has ran successfully though. On average, most people have been getting back around 1 GB though. :)

Hello Gorn, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Wow, now that is a record. Did you not run the SP1 Disk Cleanup Tool before? If not, then that may be why you had more free space after running the SP2 cleanup tool.
