Windows 7 - disk cleanup Temporary files - 50GB worth - OK to clean?
Posted on 2011-03-15
I want to make some space on my Windows 7 Ultimate laptop hard drive. I ran a disk clean up and this operation is showing that I have 50GB of temporary files (not internet files just general files)
However it does not give me the option to explore these.
I can't see how it's got to 50GB!. I can see under username/ appdata/temp 13GB and there is a little bit in the Windows/temp folder but not 50GB's worth.
I'm worried that letting it wipe off that 50GB, it's actually deleting something I need (e.g. one of my Virtual PC's or something like that)
Any ideas how I can confirm these 50GB of temp files is definitely temp files and not something I might need.
Thanks in advance
