Hi John,

Thank you for your message.

I initially set  Storage Sense to run every day, but in view of what you've
said, I'll most likely change the setting to weekly.  

The reason I thought  there may be a conflict, is that there are certain
files, such as thumb Nails, which don't currently seem to be  able to be
deleted using disk cleanup, and I'm wondering if  the inability to delete
thumbnails is partly due to the fact I have storage sense switched on.  

I'll try changing the setting to weekly and see what that does.

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.
