    selecting files to delete w10


    Is there a program to select some files from different folders. As in select 2 files from folder a1 and some files from folder a2 and so on. I know about copywhiz which I use to copy and paste files but i want to delete them. The reason is when I delete files from a usb the computer takes its time and hangs on 99% deleted or copied. Then it takes ages to go to each folder and delete them.

    Ps. I have tried all the fixes for hanging usb's, but it has happened to all my usb's and my last two pc's and three mb's.

    Win10-20h1.

    :)

    Unable to delete temporary files

    Hi Sumit,

    Looks like you are running out of storage space, let's walk you through the steps of running
    Disc cleanup for your Windows 10 device.

    To delete temporary files, kindly follow these steps:

    • Press the Windows key to launch the Start menu.
    • Type in Disc cleanup and press Enter.
    • Under Files to delete, select the file types to get rid of. To get a description of the file type, select it.
    • Select OK.

    If you need to free up more space, you can also delete system files:

    • Press the Windows key to launch the Start menu.
    • Type in Disc cleanup and press Enter.
    • In Disk cleanup, select Clean up system files.
    • Select the file types to get rid of. To get a description of the file type, select it.
    • Select OK.

    If the suggestions above didn't work, feel free to post back so we can further troubleshoot.
