Windows 10: Open and Use Disk Cleanup in Windows 10
Append here i have make a same question....... i obtain a suggestion, on first place, to check all value except somethings related to a "setup.log".
I have run the command from command prompt......... i have look all about 25 voices but what's the voices about setup.log ?? How i need to check or not check ?
The setup.log is only a log file of your Windows installation. If you don't need it, it's safe to check and be deleted.
Windows Setup Log Files
Yeah i know....... but i need some info about what's the exact voices.
Otherwise i have run and i have check all voices inside......... after that i have waited about 40 minutes and i see a lot of space returned back on my C:\.
The folder windows.old now it's very little small.......... it's about 50MB and contain only this path:
I don't know because this path it's been conserved.
On D:\ the ESD it's remained inside the folder "Windows10Upgrade" and also on C:\ i can see this same folder and i don't know if it's need to maintain or how i can remove/uninstall.
I need to run again the advanced clean ?
I wouldn't recommend to manually delete anything like that.
Each item in Disk Cleanup gives you a general description of what is included with it. They are all safe to delete, but it just depends on you if you want to keep something or not based on your needs.
For example, if you check "Previous Windows installation(s)", it will delete the Windows.old folder content, and you will no longer be able to go back to a previous Windows.
Yeah.. infact i have followed this also tutorial:
Windows.old Folder - Delete in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
I have runned but the Windows.old folder continue to stay on C:\............. for all two "Windows10UpgradeFolder" i have uninstalled the "Upgrade Assistant" by Revouninstaller and the folder on C:\ and the folder on D:\ (when ESD files it's stored) it's correctly deleted.
I have only need now to deleted the windows.old folder........ apparently i select to delete from cleanmgr but the folder remain ever here....
You could use option 3 in that tutorial to delete the Windows.old folder.
In Audit mode, to do a thorough cleaning of all unnecessary information, it is enough to run the %SystemRoot%\system32\cleanmgr /sageset:65535 /sagerun:65535 command from the Run window because, in this mode, is used only the Administrator user. Right?
Be nice to all, please?!
No, you need to run it as admin. The button bellow is a dead giveaway, it says: "Clean up system files."
If you run it as admin, you will not see it, then again, you can just click on the button to continue.
I can delete the "$GetCurrent" folder on my C:\ ??? I have look inside and apparently there's a "media" folder whit inside somethings like a windows dvd..... also there's a "log" folder and there's a log of an installation maked about month of September 2016........

I just installed the latest build and as I have a rather small drive c: I wanted to delete the Windows.old files. I, had two of them. Disk Cleanup deleted Windows.old but left Windows.old(1). Not much left inside that Windows.old(1) folder but I...
does anyone get the disk cleanup tool pop up on its own once a day around a certain time?
it does for me and i cant work out why
In Windows 10 I can find disk optimize by using the search engine in settings, and typing in: "Disk defrag and optimize". Or by right clicking the drive in question > Properties > Tools tab.
But it doesn't show the folder location.
On my 9860 Enterprise version I can find the disk clean up tool in the start menu. On the 32 and 64 bit pro versions it can be easily missed as it is nowhere to be found in a menu. When you type "Disk Cleanup" in the start menu search the option you...
To Windows updaters (those who've upgraded rather than done a "Clean install").
This is also especially good if you are using smaller capacity SSD's for your installation or even VM's where you don't want to use too much disk space...
