    Yes, MS added a few new items that we can choose to remove or not. If you do choose that one you have displayed, then Windows will give you a warning msg, that if deleted you can't go back to an older date. (thats what image backups ARE for anyhow. ) I had around the same amount as you did. Removed around 25GB for me.

    Hi Sean. You don't mean about clicking the clean up after install button.
