    I just checked with ProcMon. When you run the cleanup of temporary files (from the new Settings > Storage) it invokes cleanmgr by running the \Microsoft\Windows\DiskCleanup\SilentCleanup task in task scheduler.

    As they both use the same program to clean up the results are the same.

    What I can't figure out is what your 176MB is (118MB in my case) but I don't trust any of those numbers in the storage app anyway as it says I've used 49GB out of 57GB on my 32GB disk.

    What I am finding out David, that Windows is giving us the wrong information on the temporary files size. Windows is reading the size of the temporary file Cache and not what is actually IN the temporary cache. Case in point, if it reads say 250MB and then you change it to say 200MB, then go back to that screen you just displayed, it will now show 200MB. This IS a Windows problem. Its not reporting the right information correctly.

    I think you are right - but I don't trust any of the numbers really.

    I remember some thread here where someone was complaining about disk cleanup not deleting cache files (because they were immediately recreated after). I can't remember the details though. I'll see if I can find it as (as this is a front end for cleanmgr) it could be the same issue.

    It is sort of bugging me now, ...

    Hi,

    What I can't figure out is what your 176MB is (118MB in my case) but I don't trust any of those numbers in the storage app anyway as it says I've used 49GB out of 57GB on my 32GB disk.
    Similar story here, it just doesn't make any sense:

    Go figure..........

    Yes I understand what your saying lx07, no matter how its reporting temp folder sizes, it IS reporting the in-correct size. One user went to the cache folder, and it was empty, but windows reported it had like 236MB in the folder. This is just another bug in our Windows 10, that's all.

    I think what we're missing here is the definition of what it means by "Temporary files" - don't think it refers to Temporary Internet Files (or browser cache or whatever, alone) - I haven't yet found the definition of exactly what "Temporary files" is in this context - could be a bug or could just be my ignorance at this point.

    Hi,

    @Wordman: If it isn't meaning that then why does it open the IE caching folder when clicking "View files" ?
