    Windows 10 won't delete temporary files


    Under settings>disk space>C:>temporary files you can delete temporary files, it says that it's deleting the temporary files and you should come back later for the results. How long does this take? When i'm closing this menu and come back later it's still the same size and it is not saying anymore that it is cleaning the temporary files.

    Try running cleanmgr as administrator. Type cleanmgr.exe in the search box.

    Disk clean up doesn't show any kind of file, even in system files, that is 4,19GB big. The biggest gain I can get from disk clean up is 130MB.

    Any idea how long it took for the files to disappear. I'm in the same boat that you were in and I'm wondering how to get back 6GB.
