    What is STORAGE SENSE?

    Hi Taffy087

    Storage sense automatically removes temporary files etc. when disk space is getting low.

    1) yes, as space is getting low on the system disk, although at that stage it hadn't done anything it is turned off by default but was suggesting you turn it on.

    2) it is new with windows 10, but if you were not low on space you may not have known about it. It will eventually replace the disk clean-up.

    3) you can safely remove everything listed in storage sense.

    windows.old contains details of the previous build and is only required if you opt to roll back within 10 days of installing a feature update - if you don't need to roll back or it has been more than 10 days, you can safely delete it.

  3. What is STORAGE SENSE?

    Hello Taffy087,

    Storage Sense has been around since Windows 10 build 15014, and updated in build 17720.

    Storage Sense basically allows you to automatically delete the specified content in its settings to help free up space on the hard drive. Think of it like an automated Disk Cleanup (cleanmgr.exe).

    The tutorials below can help provide more details about Storage Sense if you like:

  4. How to use Storage Sense in Windows 11 to free up disk space

    1 disk in 3 disk Simple Storage Space failed

    Hi,

    When you create a simple storage space, it will write data in a stripe across physical disks (in your case, 3 disks) without any extra copies or parity information. This type of storage space will not offer resiliency or data protection. Data corruption
    and data loss will occur when one of these drives fails.

    Since simple space, or simple layout does not provide any data protection, it is best suited for use on files with backups, or users who are okay with losing or recreating the data if a disk fails.

    You may still be able to recover your data using any third-party recovery tools but data integrity is not guaranteed.

    We encourage you to check these articles for more information on Storage Spaces:


    Feel free to ask the community should you have further questions. However, for more in-depth support regarding Storage Spaces, it is best to ask this on
    TechNet as this subject is beyond the scope of this forum.
