Clean Up!

As part of my maintenance, in order to keep the computer fresh, is to regular run the built-in tool Free up disk space.

The tool is accessible via the following commands:

  • Start Button > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Free up disk space

After running it the following dialog is showed:

CleanUp

Yes, I admit it was some time ago since I last executed the clean up process. However, I cannot understand how Temporary Files can grow to a size of 30 GB?

In addition, does anyone know if it exist a small utility that can automatically clean up Temporary Files?

The general recommendation is to not forget to run the Free up disk space on a regular basis!

Kind regards,
Dennis

  1. Hi Dennis,

    I use CCleaner for this type of system maintenance.
