    Question File Manager needed

    Hello;

    I do not have or know a file manager that allows to easily delete old files owned by MS's Trusted Installer.
    Case in point is file cleanup after Upgrade to Windows 10.
    Any tips?
    TIA

    Use the disk cleanup tool in Control Panel.

    I sometimes get help from Total Commander [paid for]:

    There is a FreeCommander that may help:

    +1 for Total Commander

    I also use Altap Salamander: http://www.altap.cz/

    Have used Total Commander since Win95 days, and Salamander since about 2002.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
    I have a few more machines to upgrade to Win 10 and will on the next machine try the cleanup tool and on on anther one Total Commander.
    I hope I'll remember to post the results.

    @ eikelein

    I use a 32GB USB thumbdrive which has all the installers/HowTos/files I need when working on customers' computers. It also has the portable version of Total Commander (http://www.ghisler.com/usbinst.htm) which saves me a lot of trouble.

    Just remember that no matter what program you use it is going to be bound by Windows security. If your account does not have permission to do what you want the program does not matter.
