    Is a windows update cleanup safe?

    disc cleanup

    Hi Edward,

    You should run Disk Cleanup Twice as explained below to safely remove anything that can be removed and check everything in the list, it is quite safe to do that, disk Cleanup will not suggest anything that is not safe to remove . . .

    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
