Where is Disk Cleanup for Windows Server 2008?

Discovered something new today.. in order to use the handy Disk Cleanup utility in your Windows Server 2008 machine, you need to enable the ‘Windows ‘Desktop Experience’ feature.

Fantastic, so I get to slow down my server in order to use the clean up utility?

Luckily, this guy worked out how to enable that utility again with very little effort (just drop it from one location into your System32 folder)
