Did you know that cleaning up your storage improves not only your computer’s performance but your productivity as well? While there are many ways you can do this, one of the most effective is to use the Disk Cleanup tool which clears up unwanted files. These unnecessary items might be eating your storage space and preventing your computer from performing at its best. Disk Cleanup also has the intelligent capability to clear up registries and detect virus-infected or redundant files.
Disk Cleanup can easily be accessed through the start menu or by searching Disk Cleanup. Once it has been opened, this tool will automatically select Drive C, although you can switch to other drives, and will show a list of file locations containing files that can be removed. Adjacent to each file location is data about the size it is taking up from your hard disk.
Each file location has a corresponding checkbox that needs to be selected in order to delete the unnecessary files it contains. Upon highlighting or selecting certain files, the description of the files will appear at the bottom of the window so that you know exactly which files you are removing.
When Disk Cleanup completes you need to restart your system to remove the unnecessary Windows Update files. Remember, the Disk Cleanup tool only removes those files that it thinks are no longer needed, hence usually very few are deleted.
The Disk Cleanup tool is as handy to launch and operate as any basic program, so there is no hassle of installing new software and tools to clean your computer. Not only does this allow you to use your disk space for necessary files but also improves your productivity.
