  1. Disk Cleanup Not Working Properly After 2004 Update


    Ever since the new 2004 update, my disk cleanup isn't working properly anymore. The basic cleanup works fine, but when I select the clean system files which requires admin or something, it just closes and nothing else happens. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Disk Cleanup not working in 2004 (19041.207)

    Hi,

    This is what I'm getting :

    Disk Cleanup Not Working Properly After 2004 Update [​IMG]

    It seems that 'StartComponentCleanup' doesn't work here too. I didn't notice that cause I used Cleanmng+.
    Disk Cleanup could not find/remove leftovers but Cleanmng+ did it.
    I don't remember how much space it freed up, but it certainly did.

    Hi joysoder, to properly and safely delete any files not required by your system, run Disk Cleanup twice as explained below. Each time select everything in the list and delete them. Disk Cleanup will not suggest deleting anything that is not safe to delete
    . . .

    Open File Explorer

    Click on your hard drive

    On the Manage Tab, click Cleanup

    Let Disk Cleanup do its initial scan

    Select Everything in the list and choose Delete

    Start Disk Cleanup again

    Let Disk Cleanup do its initial scan

    This time in the resulting dialog, click 'Cleanup System Files'

    Let Disk Cleanup run another scan

    Select Everything in the list and choose Delete
