Is it safe to remove 1.9GB of temporary files?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have windows 10 and CCleaner has been working fine with it. I use CCleaner nearly every day, so I don't have a backlog of old files to delete. When I ran it today, it indicated there are 1.9G of temporary program files to be deleted. Considering I ran CCleaner a day or two ago, is it safe to remove such a large number of files? I uninstalled CCleaner, then ran a full system virus scan with Nortons, then reinstalled CCleaner. It still shows 1.9G

Do you mean 'System - Temporary Files'?

If you are then you can run an analysis and double-click on the result for 'System - Temporary Files' and it will display just what files it has found.

If not then please describe more just what you are seeing, a screenshot would help.

CC is pretty safe to use and it isn't unusual to sometimes see a large amount of temporary system files to remove.
In particular a Windows Update may create a lot of temporary files, often 1GB or more. (And it may be a while since the update before you can remove them).

If you weren't using CCleaner then Windows would eventually delete them itself.
You might also want to turn on 'Storage Sense' which will remove old Windows files automatically if you are running out of space.
(Windows_menu>Settings>System>Storage).
