PLEASE BE AWARE: SERVICING (I.E. HOTFIXES AND SERVICE PACKS) WILL STILL REPLACE FILES 
IN THE ORIGINAL DIRECTORIES. THE LIKELIHOOD THAT FILES IN THE INETPUB DIRECTORIES HAVE 
TO BE REPLACED BY SERVICING IS LOW BUT FOR THIS REASON DELETING THE ORIGINAL DIRECTORIES
IS NOT POSSIBLE.

  1. Thanks for producing this script.
    Are there any variations required or issues with running this script on Server 2012R2 or 2016?
