Please add option to remove Windows Update backups


Recommended Posts

Please add an optional function (not part of the standard CCleaner run) that deletes all of the backup files created by the Windows Update function.


Windows Update creates a backup of every file it modifies for each update it installs. These backups accuulate over time and take up lots of space. Most users never un-install a Windows update fix so these backup fiules are never needed.

If you're talking about the Hotfix Uninstallers that is already in CC, it's in:

Cleaner -> Advanced -> Hotfix Uninstallers


Note: You'll need to run the Issues scanner 1 or 2 times to remove some leftover invalid registry data that points to the Hotfix Uninstallers after removing them.
