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.

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
the point of running both, that would just seem to be a waste of resourcesto

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.
