Type cleanmgr /sageset, there is an option to compress old files

Cleaning will only be a temporary solution, buy larger HDs and clone the old installations onto them. You will have a great loss in performance, too, if your harddrives are getting full.
But now to your script:

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Yes, read about roaming profiles.
The pst-file can be moved and after that outlook will ask for the new path. Network paths are possible, but microsoft gives the advice not to do that - too much overhead, as far as I can remember.

Dear McKnife
sorry for being late in reponding;
I want to ask you if know a special software can clean temp, compressed files remotely and faster than Windows clean up utilities.

Best Wishes,
Abdullah

Uh, never looked for such a software. There are many names going around, "cleansweep" maybe?
You could clean temp with a small batch
rd %temp% /s /q
md %temp%

what do you mean, clean compressed files?
