How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Task sequence media - compute space does not consider removed applications/packages

When creating stand-alone media you have the option to select which Applications,Packages and driver packages it should include onto the media or not. After clicking next on the summary page the process of starting the media launches. in the createTSMedia.log you can see that at some point the process starts to compute volume layout. It seems that the compute of the volume layout does take into account the software you selected to not be on the media. Therefore you might get the message that you do not have enough space on the USBFD media altough this is not trough. At this point the only solution is to create a copy of your task sequence and remove all tasks with content that you do not need for this specific offline deployment. IT would be nice if the compute volume layout step respects the packages/applications you selected to not be on the media.
