Missing Disk Cleanup on Windows Server 2008 R2

Recently ran into a fun puzzler where my Windows Server 2008 R2 Machine had Disk Defragmenter available, but not Disk Cleanup.  After a few googles, I found this little fun gem.  In short, Disk Cleanup is part of what Windows calls 'Desktop Experience' which installs a lot of other items like Desktop Themes and the like.  Since most servers are meant for a specific function, Windows by default disables this.  This blog post article tells you how to either:

  • Turn Desktop Experience on
  • Copy over the two executables needed get back your Disk Cleanup

Kudos to Nathalie Vaiser.
