    I also have 4 folders as shown in #7. After cleaning and reboot, it look like this:

    I have the same folders as you, and three of the NativeImages folders are a similar size to yours.

    But your NativeImages_v4.0.30319_64 folder is 17GB, so that's where the problem is. How big is the NativeImages_v4.0.30319_64\Temp folder? Is that, as I suspect, the folder that takes up all this space?

    No, it is not the temp-folder. I found one folder that looks different that the others in size:

    But I really don't know what that is in this folder?? The filename is also just a long string of letters and numbers just link the foldername

    Okay, maybe it is solved now? I tried to delete the folder but that could not be done as administrator. I rebooted in safe mode, and then I could delete the big file and the folder. The first boot after took longer than normal, and at login screen it wanted to reboot again. Next reboot took the normal time, and everything seems to work now.
    I will keep an eye on this for the next days to see if a file is growing big again, but for now it seems to be solved!

    I too have the C:\Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v4.0.30319_64\Microsoft.V9921e851# folder, but it just contains one folder, the same 51bd11d9a0d4cd63e8e2dc8b209b7399 folder as you have.

    In fact, all the subfolders of my NativeImages_v4.0.30319_64 just contain one folder each (with a similar long GUID string as a name). So that second folder in your Microsoft.V9921e851# looks like it shouldn't be there and may be the result of some corruption or update process that failed. Did your system crash on you recently?


    I would first run a CHKDSK /SCAN from a command prompt (Admin). If that is clean, then I'd try SFC /SCANNOW.


    I'm reluctant to suggest you delete this anomalously large folder if is still there after that. But you could try moving it out of the NativeImages_v4.0.30319_64\Microsoft.V9921e851# folder to somwhere else on your C: drive, well away from the C:\Windows folder. If nothing appears to be broken by doing that, I'd wait for a week or so before deleting it.

    As written under the "UPDATE" in #12 the folder is deleted (had to boot into Safe Mode to be allowed to do so).
    But as you suggest, I have now tried CHKDSK /SCAN (did nothing), then I tried SFC /SCANNOW ... after some time it had an "verify error", and wanted to reboot. Well, I did that, and the SFC continued after reboot.
    When it finished after the reboot, I got this

    And the best part is, that the big folder is still gone! So I cross my fingers and hope all is allright again.

    BTW Yes, windows 10 crashed the first boot after flashing the new BIOS, could this be it? And "My Phone" is still not working after removed connection between phone and win10, cleaned the data and cache of both, uninstalled the app (win 10 and on phone), removed my phone from my MS account, reinstalled first the My Phone in windows 10, let it send a SMS to my phone, installed the app on the phone after the sms from MS, but as before it stops when on final screen it say something about "asking for final permission to link your phone to your PC". And then a link to troubbleshooting if it is hanging on this page. I have been through this troubbleshooting 2-3 times now. So I'm giving up on this, but my PC seems to be working fine again.

    Thank you very much for all your help (I have clicked the "thanks" icon, Bree)

    You're braver than me then I would have renamed or moved it first. Sound like it was the right thing to do though.

    ...as you suggest ... I tried SFC /SCANNOW ... after some time it had an "verify error", and wanted to reboot...

    Yes, SFC would ask for a reboot to complete the repairs if it has found and fixed errors.

    Almost certainly.


    "My Phone" is still not working ... as before it stops when on final screen it say something about "asking for final permission to link your phone to your PC".
    I don't use 'My Phone' (others may be able to help there) but when setting up a Bluetooth connection I get a similar final step. I would expect some sort of notification on the PC asking if you want to allow the pairing, as I do for Bluetooth devices.
