Save Lots of Disk Space with Microsoft’s New Windows Update Cleanup Tool

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Disk space is pretty darned cheap these days, but this still sounds like it could be helpful …

The space a Windows operating system requires grows over time thanks to service packs and updates mostly, but also thanks to other system files and programs that users install on their PC. There are only a few situations where the space requirements drop. This can be after you decide to uninstall a feature that you do not want to use anymore, of by running the Disk Cleanup tool after the installation of a service pack to remove backup files from the system that are created automatically as an option to restore the system to a pre-Service Pack level.
