Use mklink for disk cleanup

Similar to my post from a few years ago, my SSD system drive was running low on disk space. I freed up 20+ GB of space by moving the following folders to a separate drive and using mklink to create a symbolic link:

C:\Users\Mathew\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\15.0\OfficeFileCache
(thanks to George B. Summers in his reply to this post)
C:\Users\Mathew\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\15.0>mklink /D OfficeFileCache D:\Users\Mathew\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\15.0\OfficeFileCache

C:\ProgramData\Package Cache
(thanks to Roel van Lisdonk in his post)
C:\ProgramData>mklink /D "Package Cache" "D:\ProgramData\Package Cache"

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Setup Bootstrap\Update Cache
(thanks to Vinh Q Nguyen in his reply to this post)
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Setup Bootstrap>mklink /D "Update Cache" "D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Setup Bootstrap\Update Cache"
