  1. Dear Nukecad, Thank you for all your information about Storage Sense - it has been very educational. Best, drbajb
  2. Dear Nukecad, Thank you for the education about SS's and Windows 10's handling of downloaded Windows Update files. Are you saying with your parenthetical statement, that Windows Update files have to remain on the hard disk for at least 7 days or so before SS will remove them even given a manually initiated SS scan? One other anomaly that I encountered with SS concerns the Recycle Bin. I removed a Quicken file to the Recycle Bin. A half-hour or so later, I ran a manually initiated SS and it showed 0 Bytes in the Recycle Bin after its scan and consequently, did not empty it. What are the rules of SS concerning the Recycle Bin? Does the contents of the Recycle Bin have to reside in the Recycle Bin for a minimum amount of time before they will be removed by a manually initiated SS operation? Best, drbajb
  3. Again, thank you for the post, Nukecad. When I run Storage Sense manually, I am not convinced that it removes old Windows 10 Update files from my hard drive. The only way I have been able to remove old Windows 10 Update files manually is to call up Disk Cleanup and click on Clean System Files and the size of the Windows 10 Update files appears after Disk Cleanup completes its analysis of residual files. In the case of a monthly Windows 10 Cumulative Updates, the Update file is between 2 and 3 GB in size and it takes Disk Cleanup many, many minutes to remove the files from my hard drive. Even though I would think it to be a temporary Windows file, I am still not convinced that Storage Sense removes old Windows Update files. I will pay more attention next time I run Storage Sense after a Windows update. Best, don bartel
  4. Thank you for your reply Hazelnut. I'm not sure what you mean by the term, "deprecated." Does that mean that Microsoft;s former Disk Cleanup function is gradually being replaced by Storage Sense in the future even though you say that is being retained for compatibility reasons? You mention that Storage Sense's functionality is a superset of what the legacy Disk Cleanup provides but unless I'm mistaken, I don't think that Storage Sense removes downloaded Windows 10 update files like Disk Cleanup does.

  5. Thank you Nukecad for your reply. I have always used Disk Cleanup to remove the downloaded Windows 10 Update files by clicking on Clean up system files after the update has been installed and have never had a problem. In the case of a monthly cumulative Windows update, the download files can be quite large - today's update was 2.8+ GB disk space. I really don't have to concern myself too much with removing downloaded Windows 10 updates because I have a 1 Terrabyte drive and am not using that much of it. It's just a habit that I repeat whenever there are residual Windows 10 update files. I am using the free version of CCleaner, v5.46.6652. Best, don bartel
  6. As I mentioned in my post, I received an email newsletter from How-To-Geek and their stance was that Microsoft is phasing out Disk Clean in favor of Windows 10 Storage Sense. I am unfamiliar with the terms cleanmgr/sageset:1 or cleanmgr/sageset:666. Is that some kind of Windows 10 program or is that a program that you downloaded from some website? Best, don bartel
  7. I downloaded and installed one of the monthly Windows 10 Cumulative Updates. After the installation, I tried to use CCleaner to remove the 2.87 GB download but could not do it. I was forced to use Micrtosoft's Windows 10 Disk Clean to perform the cleanup. Is this because I have the free version of CCleaner on my computer? Does the PRO version perform this function? The reason I ask is that How-To-Geek had an article in their newsletter today that Microsoft is planning on removing Disk Cleanup from Windows 10 and I wondered what I could use should that occur, to remove the residual Windows 10 Update download files. Best, DonB
