You should not delete any system files belongs to Windows OS these system files stored in C:\Windows folder and its subfolders.

 

The Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool can be use to analyze the size of the component store and reduce the size of the component store (WinSxS folder). The WinSxS folder is located in the Windows folder, for example C:\Windows\WinSxS. It’s the location for Windows Component Store files. The Windows Component Store is used to support the functions needed for the customization and updating of Windows.  Component store (WinSxS folder) contains all the components that make-up Windows to allow you operate your system. These components are kept to rollback any problematic change or to repair a file that becomes corrupted.

 

Open the Command Prompt as a Administrator.

 

Reduce the size of the component store by typing following command:

Dism  /Online  /Cleanup-Image  /StartComponentCleanup

You can reduce the size of the component store further by adding the /ResetBase parameter. The installed Windows Updates cannot be uninstalled after the '/StartComponentCleanup' with '/ResetBase' operation is completed.

Type following command:


  

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

You can use WinDirStat program to find out sizes of files that are taking more disk space than other files and delete files you don't need.
