    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. Storage Sense

    Hello Microsoft Community,

    I enabled Storage Sense on my Windows 10 PC to automatically free up space on my computer. However, I just got a notification that Storage Sense needs to be enabled by "removing unused cloud-backed content on your PC", but Storage Sense is already enabled.
    How can I set Storage Sense to clean my PC every week? And what is "unused cloud-backed content"?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    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:
