[winxp] GUIDE: Making your windows folder smaller!


Recommended Posts

Bold_Fortune

nuhi, I wonder if you could do me a favor. Below is a list of Fonts I remove from a fresh install of XP. I've tried unsuccessfully making a bat file which will move these Fonts to a backup folder on C:\ For some reason I cannot get the bat file to move them all, only some.

Could you make a pattern for me to go by like with a cmd file? Maybe a command file would move them better. If you get me started I can take it from there. Maybe if you laid it out for me using the first two or three Fonts listed.

What I would like is it to "move" the Fonts from C:\WINDOWS\Fonts to a backup folder on C:\ named backup. Within the backup folder I would like a subfolder named WINDOWS. In the WINDOWS subfolder I would like another subfolder named Fonts...where the Fonts will be placed for safe keeping.

Hope it's not too much to ask. Thanks.

frease wow, that's something, enjoy

C:\WINDOWS\Debug << I take it "PASSWD.LOG" replaces itself anew in here?
It doesn't even get deleted, it can't be deleted.
One suggestion. Before removing PCHealth I suggest you move "msconfig" to the system32 folder first.

It's ok, i'm using different utility, others beware.

For that moving instead of just deleting change working directory ( cd /d ) to any Backup folder and action (rd /q /s) to "move /y"

It goes like this:

md C:\BACKUP\Windows

md C:\BACKUP\Windows\System32

cd /d C:\BACKUP\Windows

rem ----< MAIN >----------------------------------------------------------------------

move /y "%SystemRoot%\Connection Wizard"

move /y "%SystemRoot%\Downloaded Installations"

move /y "%SystemRoot%\Offline Web Pages"

But then for different folders put them later in their "section"...meaning below cd /d C:\BACKUP\*WANTED*

cd /d C:\BACKUP\Windows\System32

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\restore

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\ShellExt

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\spool

That's the simplest way...you could create new variable %BACKUP% but then you would need to add it after every line.

Very cool. Thanks, nuhi. Would you mind showing me that for the Fonts above? I'm really bad at understanding instructions for these types of files. I can only go by a pattern. Maybe then I can carry that over to making files for individual files on other folders I want to remove.

Bold_Fortune, i just edited last post...damn you'r fast.

About that Fonts...if some can't be removed it's because they are running, protected, can't be moved, and shouldn't be.

But, here is the code anyway:

md C:\BACKUP\Windows\Fonts

cd /d C:\BACKUP\Windows\Fonts

move /y "%SystemRoot%\Fonts\8514fix.fon"

move /y "%SystemRoot%\Fonts\8514fixe.fon"

move /y "%SystemRoot%\Fonts\8514fixg.fon"

And so on.

Darnit, I just made the complete command file. Now I have to decipher what you edited and redo it. Bummer. Oh well. Thanks, buddy.

Okay, I'm lost. I was making the WINDOWS folder command file per your instructions before you edited them. I would like to have separate cmd files for WINDOWS and WINDOWS\system32, but you have them merged here in the new instructions, and I don't know how to edit it. (lol..it's always such a drag doing this through forum posts...I always end up looking like an idiot, and the guy(s) helping always get frustrated.)

It goes like this:

md C:\BACKUP\Windows

md C:\BACKUP\Windows\System32

cd /d C:\BACKUP\Windows

rem ----< MAIN >----------------------------------------------------------------------

move /y "%SystemRoot%\Connection Wizard"

move /y "%SystemRoot%\Downloaded Installations"

move /y "%SystemRoot%\Offline Web Pages"

But then for different folders put them later in their "section"...meaning below cd /d C:\BACKUP\*WANTED*

cd /d C:\BACKUP\Windows\System32

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\restore

About that Fonts...if some can't be removed it's because they are running, protected, can't be moved, and shouldn't be.

If that's the case, we may as well scratch all this.

What I would really need then is a batch file like krayzone was making on the other site, that will first backup the files and then go back and delete them. This makes sense because I can "delete" all the Fonts, but not "move" them all.

I knew this would happen once we got into this. It's not your fault; it's mine. I just don't understand enough about bat and cmd files to follow simple instructions. And getting these types of instructions through a forum is just too gut wrenching for me.

I'm very sorry for taking up your time, nuhi.

I meant that if something you can't move, you can't delete it too.

So no script will help you to delete something you are using.

You can do it in safe mode, maybe, and end up with corupted letters on next normal reboot.

There is always end, you must calm down, or maybe try win98, they can go waay smaller :)

I don't get it. I made a batch file to backup and remove the Fonts, but again, it would not remove some of the Fonts. I don't get it because if I can delete them "manually" myself. Why can't a command or batch file do it, too?

I did try it in safemode, too. No go. Although it did remove a few more fonts that way, it did not get them all.

I'm going to post the batch file I made in the hopes that someone can help figure this out.

You know the shame of it? Jan's been working on Fonts lately, and I was going to surprise her with this file tonight...when I asked her to go steady. :yes:

WOW! That command file way of doing it beats the stink off of the batch file way of doing it for speed. It completed moving the folders before I could count to one. I like it, I do.

nuhi, I have three things I'm trying to accomplish with it that I failed at. (I told you I was terrible at following instructions.)

Would you mind helping me with these?

1.) C:\WINDOWS\security\Database

I would like this to be placed in subfolders thusly:

nuhi, one other thing, please. I don't know how complicated this would be to incorporate into the file, but I need two important files "moved" to the "actual" system32 folder here: C:\WINDOWS\system32 during the process...and NOT to the BACKUP folder on C:\

They are "msconfig.exe" from C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries, and

"framedyn.dll" from C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem

@Jan ...Jan, you just gotta try this. It's absolutely fantastic. I'll attach the .cmd file for you. Be sure to either move those two files above I'm asking nuhi to help me with to the actual system32 folder first...or, you can get them from the BACKUP Folder created on C:\ and then put them in the actual system32 folder after you run the .cmd file.

Trust me. You're gonna like this.

(Bet she'll go steady with me now. :yes: )

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security\Database

move /y %SystemRoot%\security\Database"

There is an error...you are moving Database dir in Database dir...that's double Database.

And have you made a C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security dir first ?

The point is to locate yourself in one directory under the needed one

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security

and make that same "tree" in backup

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security, then

move C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security\Database\

from C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security

and so on with others.

This is how it goes:

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security

move /y %SystemRoot%\security\Database"

To backup msconfig:

move "C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\msconfig.exe" %SystemRoot%\System32\

then delete or move PCHealth.

move "C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\framedyn.dll" %SystemRoot%\System32\

then delete or move wbem

And try not to paste so much text on to forums...it's kinda veird reading all those lists when you can attach files, ok ?

Is this how they should look?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security

move /y %SystemRoot%\security\Database"

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\config\systemprofile"

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\system32\DirectX\Dinput

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\system32\DirectX\Dinput

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\DirectX\Dinput"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

move "C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\msconfig.exe" %SystemRoot%\System32\

move /y "%SystemRoot%\PCHealth"

move "C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\framedyn.dll" %SystemRoot%\System32\

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\wbem

That crash you just heard was my computer hitting the pavement outside.

I give up. I just can't place those last few commands right. Maybe if you get the time, or the inclination, nuhi, you can download my cmd file from above and put in those last commands where they need to go. If not, that's alright. I know it's a lot to ask. You've been swell about all this. So thanks.

How can't you see that in first two rows it must be one directory down

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile <---- remove that which you are trying to move "systemprofile"

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile <----

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\config\systemprofile"

When you move a directory it creates it self (the last one in the tree)

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\config\systemprofile"

creates systemprofile automatically...and you are missing left ".

So finally:

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\config

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\config

move /y "%SystemRoot%\system32\config\systemprofile"

Have you read my post carefully, where is the rush, calm down and try it a little longer.

Now try that on others, and stop running :)

This is what I put at the very end of the script:

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\xircom

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\config

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\config

move /y "%SystemRoot%\system32\config\systemprofile"

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\DirectX\Dinput

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\system32\DirectX\Dinput

move /y "%SystemRoot%\system32\DirectX\Dinput"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assuming that is correct...(Oh, God, please say it's correct.)

Okay, but where do I place this?

md C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security

cd /d C:\BACKUP\WINDOWS\security

move /y %SystemRoot%\security\Database"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And these?

move "C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\msconfig.exe" %SystemRoot%\System32\

move /y "%SystemRoot%\PCHealth"

move "C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\framedyn.dll" %SystemRoot%\System32\

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\wbem

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, I put the top one at the very end of the WINDOWS Folders Section, and just before the beginning of the system32 Folders Section.

Now, assuming that's correct, where to I place the other two commands?

Well then, three out of five ain't bad.

I just need to know where to position these scripts, and if these scripts are correct for these two things, and it will be complete:

move "C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\msconfig.exe" %SystemRoot%\System32\

move /y "%SystemRoot%\PCHealth"

move "C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\framedyn.dll" %SystemRoot%\System32\

move /y %SystemRoot%\system32\wbem

I'm happy to announce the cmd file is completed, and works perfectly. It gives smart placement in subfolders of the BACKUP Folder on C:\ it creates, identical to the original placement of the folders it backs up and removes.

This is what I always wanted for you guys. This way anyone will know exactly where each Folder or File came from if he or she would like to replace something.

Not only that, but it will actually move two very important files in its process to the original system32 folder for you: msconfig.exe and framedyn.dll. So you don't have to worry about them. It's hassle-free.

I hope you all enjoy this. Up until know I could only tell you which files and folders could be removed. But it would require much effort and time on your part doing so. This cmd file is like having your very own program to do the removing.

It's not going to get any better than this. It's completed.

I really have to thank nuhi. He was very very patient with me, while he instructed me how to go about making this.

nuhi, you should be happy to know that the suicide rate for script writers will immediately decline thanks to you helping me put the finishing touches on this project...because I won't need to bother them anymore with it.

I actually wrote E-mails to script writers, picking their brains. ...And you should see the thread on that site that gets listed here as spam, where I drove four dudes absolutely bonkers. But no more.

Attached is the cmd file. Enjoy people. I really did do it for you you know. I've deleted all these files so many times, I can do it in five or six minutes now, and blindfolded.

Nice work you have done so far Bold! But ive experienced some problems with one of zour system32.bat. Since then ive got a english keyboard lazout and i dont get it back via systemconfig/language settings. On the first reboot after i executed zour bacth file mz pc complained about missing files named c?850.nls or something like this. I moved it back and afterr this the problem was there. I think it has something to do with mz problem. anz ideas how to get to mz old german keyboard layout.

Problem solved. Read again through the thread and saw your explanations for the files. Turned out i deleted kdbgr.dll and kdbgr1.dll.

EvErSoR, I'm glad you solved that. Time and time again I will get pm'd by folks about that. When I have again and again issued warnings about the use of my system32 bat file.

I'm going to post these warnings here one more time, because I guess some people are proceeding to use the system32 bat file without reading, or heeding, these warnings.

Remember, too, these are the files MY system doesn't need for anything. Some YOU just may need. So keep the files it backs-up and removes for a time...a good 30 to 60 day period.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A WORD OF CAUTION about kbd*.dlls. kbd*.dlls are Keyboard Layout files. My settings are for U.S. English, so I only need and keep the "kdbdus.dll". All others I remove from system32.

I've heard about another way to go about deleting the kdb*.dlls your system doesn't need...However, this will completely remove all unnecessary kdb*.dlls, not back them up like the Batch File will.

I've never tried this command, but if you would like to try it, here it is: Go to Start > Run. Copy and paste this in and click OK: del c:\windows.alt\system32\kbd*.dll

Supposedly, this will remove all the kdb*.dlls your system doesn't need.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A WORD OF CAUTION about NLS files. Delete any one of these you're not supposed to and your system may not restart.

NLS Files = Multiple Language Resource Files. Character Translation; National Language Services driver (font or font map).

My system settings are for U.S.English. If you live outside of the U.S. using a foreign from made for the U.S. computer you will need to check within your Layout.ini file within your Prefetch folder to see exactly which NLS files your system uses.

If you find you need one or two that I remove, simple look in the backup folder the Batch File Made on C:\ and replace those to your system32 folder.

For my U.S.English settings, I remove all NLS files, except for these:

c_437.nls

c_932.nls

c_936.nls

c_949.nls

c_950.nls

c_1250.nls

c_1251.nls

c_1252.nls

c_1253.nls

c_1254.nls

c_1255.nls

c_1256.nls

c_1257.nls

c_28591.nls

c_ctype.nls

geo.nls

l_except.nls

l_intl.nls

locale.nls

sortkey.nls

sorttbls.nls

unicode.nls

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now here is an updated system32 bat file. This file is going to move 700 individual files from a fresh install of XP out of system32 and place them in a backup folder it creates on C:\ ...named simply, "backup".

Within the backup folder will be a subfolder named "WINDOWS". Within that folder will be another subfolder named "system32"...where you will see the files that have been moved.

I did it this way so you would always know the exact path where they come from should you decide to return any of the files to their original location.
