    If free space was 39.9 and it went to 40.1 that is an increase in free space.

    Here is a guide for Setting up Disk Cleanup in Task Scheduler. I have it scheduled to run daily.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Oops sorry bbearen! My bad it went from 39.9 used space to 40.1. Thanks for the link, but it's not working for me and I don't mind using the old way. I like CCleaner better. It cleans more crap. Did you know that you can schedule CCleaner to run on start up or it will also advise you when a certain amount of crap can be removed!

    I'm familiar with CCleaner.

    If the space used went up the machine is as clean as you can get it.

    cheers, Paul
