This video demonstrates how to clear various Windows 10 caches using Disk Cleanup and other programs.
- [Instructor] Windows keeps another cache…in a system directory dedicated to holding temporary files.…Temporary files are created as an intermediary step…whenever another file was being created or modified.…They can also hold temporary data…that's only needed by a program for a short time.…Unfortunately, not all programs and processes…are good about cleaning up after themselves…after removing these temporary cache files.…Over time, this system directory for temporary files…can get very cluttered by a whole bunch of unnecessary junk.…
As a rule of thumb,…it's usually safe to delete temporary files…that haven't been used in over a week.…Thankfully, a built-in tool provided by Windows…a (mumbles) called Disk Cleanup…can handle this task for you.…So let me show you how to use this tool.…And now you want to choose the drive you want to clean,…in this case, it's my Windows C drive.…Click OK to launch it.…And then wait as it analyzes the file system.…What it's doing here, as it says, is it's calculating…how much space you'll be able to free up…
