    PendingRenames Folder


    OK guys anyone know how I can fix this problem. I have over 9500 files in this folder. windows/winsxs/temp/PendingRenames for about last 2 weeks now, TrustedInstaller won't remove them, Disk Clean doesn't even see them. So any ideas on how to get windows to take care of them??

    Well from what I have read, your PendingRenames folder should be empty. TrustedInstaller cleans that folder after updates are in installed. But......not mine.

    No problem I can have Full Control with the click of my mouse. But, I want to let windows remove them not me.
    This is one folder that you should let a windows command remove them.

    Ok I found a command that cleaned them up. dism /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup It worked GREAT.
