Disk Cleanup not available in Windows Server

I’m using Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit.

However, cleanmgr.exe cannot be launched directly using Win+R.

Copy the file in the path below to %systemroot%\System32.

C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-cleanmgr_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_c9392808773cd7da\cleanmgr.exe

Copy the file in the path below to %systemroot%\System32\en-US.

C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-cleanmgr.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_en-us_b9cb6194b257cc63\cleanmgr.exe.mui

Then cleanmgr.exe can be launched directly.
