Microsoft Office 2010 has a cache folder so you don’t need the media anymore after the installation. Very handy. Problem is it is 1.26Gb and I want to reclaim the space on mij C-drive. A solution is posted here but not in detail. Here’s my story.
My machine is setup with Boot to VHD. My virtual machine has an Office 2010 installation and a MSOCache folder. My main machine also has an Office 2010 installation and a MSOCache folder. So I deleted the MSOCache folder from my virtual machine and changed the registry settings to point to my main machine MSOCache: search for C:\MSOCache in regedit.exe and replace it with the new location (like 100 times or so). You’ve just saved over a Gigabyte of space in you virtual machine.
