Windows 10: WinSxs\Temp\Inflight Folder Cleanup
WinSxs\Temp\Inflight Folder Cleanup
Can anyone shed light on the C:\Windows\WinSxS\Temp\InFlight folder. There are 278 folders with no files in any of them. I know the Dism /StartComponentCleanup cleans the \Temp\PendingDeletes and \Temp\PendingRenames folders. Should it also be cleaning up the \Temp\Inflight folder as well?
Note: Permissions appear to be correct and I could manually deleted them if need be.
Note: I had some files in the \Temp\PendingDeletes that Dism /StartComponentCleanup couldn't remove because they were being held by Cortana. I had to jump thru a few hoops to temporarily/completely shut Cortana down, then those files got removed. That doesn't appear to be the case with the \Temp\InFlight folder.

Do you have any suggestions?...
