This past April, Microsoft began the rollout of the fifth feature update for the Windows 10 operating system.
As a follow-up to our hands-on and review of the April 2018 Update, we are going to dive a little deeper into many of the updates and enhancements in this feature update. This will help you and those you provide assistance take advantage of these capabilities to keep your system well maintained.
Today we are going to take a closer look at Storage Sense so you can put disk maintenance on auto-pilot for your system.
Storage Sense provides automatic maintenance of your disk space and based on your choices will clean up temporary files, past Windows Updates, and other system files on an as-needed basis. This feature is a replacement for the desktop program called Disk Cleanup that performs a similar functionality in past versions of Windows. Disk Cleanup is still in Windows 10 however, the expectation is that Storage Sense will completely take over for that software in the future as Microsoft continues to move many legacy features and functionality into the modern Windows Settings app.
To get started you access the new options for Storage Settings at Windows Settings > System > Storage > Storage Sense.
