Clearing Space with Windows 10's Storage Sense

Windows 10 has an automatic disk cleaning service that you can enable in Settings > System > Storage > "Turn on Storage sense." The feature auto-scans for temporary files when you're low on disk space along with removing local copies of OneDrive files and making them online-only after not being used for 30 days.

You can perform that scan manually by clicking "Free up space now" on the Storage Sense settings page and the utility will delete the following data:

Temporary setup files

Old indexed content

System cache files

Internet cache files

Device Driver packages

System downloaded program files

Dated system log files

System error memory dump files

System error minidump files

Temporary system files

Dated Windows update temporary files
