Win. 10 disk cleanup: How to delete temporary files
hi all: I wonder why is it that when it gets to like the 7th or 8th day, especially day 7, going to Storage and Temporary Files, I noticed the temporary files is there. It doesn't happen from day 1 to day 6. I have to clean it up. But it still appears in disk cleanup. I actually delete temporary files from manually before going to Storage. I thought it could be a bug in Windows 10. Wondering under temporary files, why it will not state 0 bytes in disk cleanup. For mine, it will state 2.07 MB. For some of you, it might state GB. I searched online and found a way for the temporary files to state 0 bytes in disk cleanup. Here are the steps: reminder, the following steps involve registry and do not modify other things, as it might cause serious issues with your device. 1. Please type reg under search and it will show Registry editor. Please click on run as administrator. 2. Then, go to, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Temporary Files 3. In the right-pane, double-click LastAccess. 4. Set the value data for LastAccess to 10. That is what I did for mine. After you are finished and go back to Storage and Temporary Files or the disk cleanup, you will notice under temporary files, it will state 0 bytes. A reminder: Even though it might state like 2.07 MB under temporary files, but when you actually delete the files manually, it will have no affect at all. You don't lose disk space because of it. Hope this helps.

Windows update cleanup did not clear
I installed the latest cumulative update, etc., but when I went to storage under settings, it stated, 3.81GB of Windows update cleanup. I cleared it but did not gain space. Not the first time. I like to know if this is just my issue or others are having the issue as well. That way, I can easily identify the issue.
Windows update cleanup buggy???
hi all: I would like to confirm one thing or two. I installed an update on my device. Now, when I go to storage to free up Windows update catalog, it will free up but left with 55mb of leftover stuff. Just hours ago, the cumulative update got installed. I did the same thing, but this time, I used disk cleanup to free up Windows update catalog. Same issue, 55mb of leftover stuff. Is anyone faced with this issue or is it a bug? Can someone let the Windows team know about it and help me upvote it? https://aka.ms/AA9yi85

Windows 10 100% Disk Usage
Hi Everyone, I have been having recent problems with many computers that are running 100% disk usage. My computer is not running this, but my brother's computer (lenovo thinkpad X131e) is running 100% all the time. I fully cleaned the drive, and disabled Windows Search and SySmain (aka Superfetch), and alot of other things. It seems to work now, but still is not like a new computer. I jumps to 100% when opening a basic app like Microsoft Edge. The only time when it is low is when idiling with no programs open. (still at 10 - 20%). I also have another computer that is running the same thing (Lenovo iDeapad 310). Does anyone know why this happens? My dad has a Lenovo P910 that is 5 years old, and runnig windows 10 Pro. This does not have the 100% disk usage though. Is it different versions of windows?? The thinkpad and ideapad are both windows 10 home. THank you for your time! Joseph
Could this be impending hard drive failure
I have a Windows 7 PC where the hard drive fills up no matter how many times I run antivirus, scan CHKDSK, or disk cleanup. There is no grinding or clicking "sound of death" but thee hdd does spin loudly when that PC is inactive on sleep. I shut it down completely to prevent damage and need some of the files there. Is it time to back them up and change the disk?
