  1. Unable to view and delete the 83GB of Temporary Files present in my C drive.


    Recently I Updated my Windows 10, but after the update process got complete I noticed that My C drive got completely filled but don't know with what files.

    I tried Disk Cleanup but no results.

    Then I discovered something unusual. You can understand my problem better by looking at the 2 screenshots posted below.

    Why I'm unable to view the 83.5 GB of Temporary files and delete them? It has eaten up the complete space of my C drive.
