    Disk Cleanup is Going Away in Windows 10


    Microsoft quietly announced that Disk Cleanup is now deprecated, news that was buried at the bottom of a blog post about Windows 10ís Storage Sense. Disk Cleanup isnít going away immediately but is on its way out the door.

    Hi,
    Don't believe it or system cleanup ever worked anyway.
    Cleanup system files seemed to do more warm than good :)

    So how will you remove system files after upgrade?

    Hi,
    Use update advisor and delete the folder it creates.

    MS will slowly remove everything that they can so that they and not the user controls Windows 10.

    "Free up space" and "Storage sense" in Settings are more than enough.

    @Josey Wales I have to agree with you. It could happen sooner than we think, users will have little control.
    Windows 10 OS will become WYSIWYG.

    Ain't no big deal.

    While Disk Cleanup is saying its goodbyes, it still lives on in spirit. The new “Free Up Space” tool in Windows 10 is basically a modern, faster Disk Cleanup. It does everything Disk Cleanup does—and more.

    To find this tool, head to Settings > System > Storage > Free Up Space Now. It will automatically scan your system for everything Disk Cleanup looked for.
