Disk Cleanup Utility not starting in Windows 7

Windows 8.1

Asked by: AshishJain12


My C drive is getting full. I cleared all the TEMP files. It did not free much space. On analyzing, I found that old windows update files are consuming too much space. I tried opening Disk Clean Up, but it is not opening at all. Can anyone please help me in fixing this out?

If Disk cleanup isn't working then do a full scan with Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, System File Checker, and establish a Clean Boot - from the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

You can also install and run CCleaner - FileHippo.com .

In Windows 7 I always follow that with a boot time Defrag with FulLDisk Check using free Puran Defragger, making sure to tick the box on Additional Operations tab for Intelligent Optimizer first.
