Microsoft to Remove Downloads Folder from Disk Cleanup

Recommended Posts

Glad to see this is going to happen

Microsoft has decided to roll back its decision to add the Downloads folder to the Windows 10 Disk Cleanup program after receiving negative feedback from users.

When this feature went live, we reported that this was potentially dangerous as users commonly start Disk Cleanup, check all the options, and run the cleanup routine. By adding the Downloads folder, users may accidentally check that option as well and remove files that they need.

Glad they removed it, my mother's download folder is so full of stuff going back years and running Disk Cleanup I'd always double-check what I selected when running maintenance on that laptop.
