How can I prevent the Minint structure that Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Operating System Deployment (OSD) Feature Pack uses from being deleted once the OS has been deployed?

A. Under normal circumstances, once an OSD deployment is complete the Minint structure it used to aid deployment is deleted. However, if for troubleshooting purposes you need to keep it, create a file at the root of the minint folder called archive_osd.sms. When the archive_osd.sms file is present, then the minint folder structure will be kept.
