    I was looking through Treesize for some large folders that I didn't need, and stumbled across this one.Can you delete it? If so, can I delete it through Treesize or do I need to use another method?

  2. Can files in $$DeleteMe.***** in C:\winsxs\Temp\PendingDelete folder if older that 2013 where present if 2018 could cause updates to not get installed and keep revering during reboot.

  3. Cannot run sfc /scannow to completion despite being in safe mode and the PendingDeletes and PendingRenames folders exist under %WinDir%\WinSxS\Temp

    Following this guide https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...er-tool-to-repair-missing-or-corrupted-system I start Command Prompt as administrator.

    I run this successfully

    However on running

    It fails at 68% complaining about

    The original guide suggests trying in safe mode, which I have to no avail. 
    I note that the PendingDeletes and PendingRenames folders exist
    under %WinDir%\WinSxS\Temp do exist as the guide further suggests. 
    The folders have many files in them.

    I am on Windows 10.

    I have also tried the steps in: https://www.infopackets.com/news/96...the_CBS.log_File_if_System_File_Checker_Fails my sfcdetails.txt file does not have any errors in it and after doing most of the steps I am have been recommended to try using a windows repair dvd, getting the files from a known good source or running a repair install (if I manage to try this and it also doesn't work I'll update this post)

    Can you delete C:\Windows\WinSxS\Temp\PendingDeletes?

    WindowsSxS Temp Files


    Try Option Two or Option Three, here... Clean Up Component Store (WinSxS folder) in Windows 10

    I run Option Three about once every 6-12 months. I run Option Two after every Windows Update.

    My: WinSxS/temp/pendingdelete is empty.
