Clean up Windows Update files

Finally Microsoft has released a patch (automatically installed on most machines) to clean up left-over Windows Update files.

The process needs to be triggered manually: from the drive's properties, select "Disk Cleanup" and then "Clean up system files" in the upcoming dialogue. The item called "Windows Update Cleanup" may list several gigabytes of files to clean up.

Enjoy the regained space on your system drive!
