General Usage

Open Disk CleanUp Tools can be used through Windows Disk Cleanup Utility. Windows Disk Cleanup Utility can be invoked in a number of ways. The most common ones are:
  • Open Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup.
  • Right click on a disk in Windows explorer (in My Computer), choose Properties and click Disk Cleanup.
  • When disk is getting critically full, Windows will prompt you to invoke Disk Cleanup Utility by showing a corresponding balloon message at notification bar.

Once invoked, Disk Cleanup Utility will calculate the amount of space that can be freed and present user with choices, which cleanup tools to use:

Disk Cleanup Dialog

On that page you can select the tools will be invoked (what types of files will be removed) when you click "OK". Clicking "Cancel" will cancel disk cleanup and no files will be removed (nor will any other cleanup activities take place).
