    Windows could add some cleaning apps, like ashampoo has) Every version they add a lot of crap games and stuff but still no cleaning app(

    Re: Windows 10 to give smarter disk cleanup recommendations

    my machine keeps trying to get me to activate the sweep up thing "to remove old files and clear up space" What it doesn't seem to appreciate is those old files are photographs, and being kept for a reason. FO MS and stop thinking you know how I want to use my machine better than I do. How about remove cortana and the telemetry bloatware and give me back some space that way?

    Re: Windows 10 to give smarter disk cleanup recommendations

    It is quite good, does what it says and is pretty straightforward to use. Doesn't have any ads or anything and doesn't need to be installed either.

    It gives you a list of "recommended" settings but I needed some features it wanted to disable so I have chose custom options.
