Disk Cleanup in Windows Vista

Windows Vista is just like any other operating system in that it uses a whole variety of temporary storage that must be cleaned occasionally. Here is how to do it.

Windows Vista is just like any other operating system in that it uses a whole variety of temporary storage that must be cleaned occasionally. Luckily, Vista makes cleanup of residual files a breeze with its disk cleanup wizard.

You can access the disk cleanup wizard by navigating to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup. Once you are here you can choose to clean up files for just your user account or for all accounts on the machine (administrative privileges required). Some of the files you will want to clean up often are downloaded program files, contents of the hibernation file, Microsoft Office temporary files, offline files, recycle bin contents, setup log files, system error memory dump files, temporary internet files, the system temp directory, media thumbnails, and windows error reporting logs.
