    I deleted $Windows~.BT folder that was propably Windows 10 files. How to recover?

    Hello,

    So about two weeks ago I deleted a $Windows~.BT folder (through the cmd). Now I know that was Windows 10 files ready for install.

    How can I download it again? I'm sure I need to reinstall some update. But which?

    Storage Sense is not deleting old files in the Downloads folder

    Here are my settings for Storage Sense. However I have waited for 2 days now and files older than 1 day are still in the recycle bin (see below).

    The files can be deleted manually and are also deleted when running storage sense manually with the "Clean Now" button, but no automatic deletion happens.

    Specify when Storage Sense Delete Files in Downloads Folder for Current User in Settings

    Hi, first of all let me thank you for the detailed tutorial.

    There is one point that I do not find clear:

    What do you mean with "Storage Sense can now turn itself on" ?

    I see there is a switch that can turn on/off storage sense, my storage sense is now disabled

    what happen when I'll be low on spage, will files be removed, meaning that it will turn itself on and files will be removed even if the swictch is "disabled"?

    Thanks.
