Windows 8: add this directory "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\"

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

this directory in Windows 8 could also be added as default delete option in CCleaner

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\

 

This directory contains all the downloads for the windows update.

Deletion is secure

No Microsoft says cleaning this folder will cause problems with further updates.

Often suggested, but highly unlikely to be added

I'd say it might, I've never had any problems with/after cleaning the directory.

In this case, having had no problem does not mean a problem doesn't exist. It's a case of some updates require items in that folder and may fail without said item

Windows also manages this folder automatically, it couldn't require cleaning unless there's a problem with an update

Well, I would also like to see this happening since other cleaners include this function. At least add it but do not mark it as a default place to always clean, but an another option where to clean. Add a popup message that you should do it at your own risk etc. like some other options that already exist in CCleaner.  Also the possibility to clean all certain file types like *.log *.dmp etc. would be nice, which also can give you a lot of free space on your hard drive. I would love you even more if you could make it happen.

If you're seriously fiending for this path to be cleaned, you can add it as an include option, but do so at your own risk.
