Hi Alexander

I must admit that I'd never heard of Storage Sense either. When I checked my system it appeared to be on, but set to run only when drive space is low. I ran it manually and got rid of 4Gb of temporary files, so I set it to run once a week.

I think it does the same thing as disc cleanup, although perhaps disc cleanup gives you more choices about what you can delete. From a bit of reading, it's "safe" to delete everything which Storage Space suggests, whereas I think you need to be rather more careful when deleting what disc cleanup offers.

My opinion is that they won't conflict, but on the other hand I wouldn't see the point of running both, that would just seem to be a waste of resources to me.

HTH a bit, John

Hi all,

I was interested to read in a recent thread on this list, a reference to a feature of Windows 10 I'd never come across before, namely storage sense.

I have turned this on, however, I am unclear as to how it works in conjunction with conventional disk clean-up. Do the two methods work together, or is one independent of the other?

Thank you in advance for your replies.
