CleanMgr: Disk Cleanup Wizard addon lets users delete outdated Windows update files

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/10

Not only for Windows 7 SP1, as it works on newer Windows versions too:

The article lists many steps, but these are the ones you don’t want to miss:

  • Start the Disk Cleanup wizard by running ‘CleanMgr‘ as Administrator
  • Make sure you press the “Cleanup system files” button:
    this will restart CleanMgr as administrator and include obsolete Windows Update files in the scan.

Both scanning and cleaning can take quite a while, and you often have to reboot afterwards.

You automate parts of the non-administrator process, but the automation task does not support the “Cleanup system files” option. Normally I’d rather see what it wants to cleanup, so I have not used this automation way yet..
