How long should the cleanup process take to run?
Paul Turpie

It depends on the image and number of updates. Make sure you are using the latest version of the image from MSDN. Anyway you are not capturing an image every day, so the length of the process should not matter as long it does not take forever. My windows 7 with office updates capture process takes about 3–4 hours because of office 2010 installation for example. As it is not really my script that does the cleaning, I don’t see how I could optimize it further. You can send me the logs though and I’ll have a look just to make sure I’m not missing something :)
