We've got a universal image w/ Sysprep + Ghost that we use on a series of Dell Desktops and Laptops. As we add new models with different hardware the size of the Driver folder is getting large. I was trying to determine what files could be removed and wanted to see if anyone else had input on this. So far the only files I can say for 100% are..

.chm (help files)
.jpg, .bmp, .ico, etc. (any image files)

Not sure about .txt files. Then any Win98 folders as we are 100% Win Xp and 2003 Server. I know that there are a few devices that still may want to use 2000 drivers.
There should be more items that can be removed but wanted to get input from others before causing potentially damaging changes.

You can remove everything in the c:\windows\software distribution folder too. It's a folder where all the updates are downloaded.
