How To Clean Up Old Windows Update Files 2019


I often get a lot of important Windows security updates while I'm on my computer, but suddenly the capacity is getting smaller, so even if I delete unnecessary programs, Windows Update keeps filling up! Capacity can be a waste! At this time, you need to find the leftover file after the update that takes up the capacity.

The reason for the update is that the file size of the win SxS folder has increased due to accumulated piles of update files. This is the basic cleanup function of the system.

As we use our computers to download, write, and delete files, as well as file fragments, or debris, update files are also downloaded and installed.

Increasingly serious, the gigabyte win SxS folder contents are freed up to free up system capacity!
