Disk Cleanup?
« on: February 25, 2010, 02:33:47 AM »
Is it safe to perform a disk clean up removing compressed old file etc?

Thanks.

The function compress old files does not delete anything from your hard drive. As the description says, it compresses files you haven't accessed recently. I recommend leaving this item un-checked unless you desperately need the space (probably very little gained).
