  1. Windows shows two different Temporary files folder sizes


    The storage distribution shows 11.5 GB in Temporary files but that folder has only 68.9 MB in reality. I tried running disk cleanup multiple times but it clearly didn't work. I started facing this problem when I initiated the 'Remove files' process and had to restart the computer midway because it seemed like the cleanup was frozen. The folder size then was nearly 11-12 GB due to a Windows update. What's going on and how do I fix this?


    Thank you!

    Directory Size Utility

    First of all nice utility, Mindweaver!
    Second of all, it's so nice to see that this section ain't dead.

    I have a few questions/suggestions, maybe you'd want to see ...
    • maybe you rename Get Folder button caption to something more intuitive? Add Folder, Get Folder Size, Check Folder Size or something like that?
    • Could you add subfolder files to the right pane? (it can be a tickbox with include sub dirs)
    • maybe you also add export list to excel?
    • there's delete file button maybe you add delete folder button too?
    • and finally maybe you can add UP button for directories?

    Windows shows two different Temporary files folder sizes

    How to fix IE when IE11 current folder for temporary internet files shows no path and a size of 0? [Resolved]

    How do I fix IE when the current folder for temporary internet files shows no path and a size of 0 for a local non-admin account? Other accounts are okay. I checked the registry key User Shell Folders under HKEY_USERS and HKEY_CURRENT_USER and the path
    is correct. I tried moving the folder and the same result. Also, clicking view files shows the folder. No browsing history shows when visiting websites. Any suggestions?

    Update: I solved the issue with a recent system image backup.
