Ran the new MS Cumlative Update today. Successfully updated to Build 17763.316. Than I ran Cleanmgr + V0.8. It stated that I had 2GB of space used due updated files. It ran successfully.??? I than ran Storage Sense and it showed I had 2GB of data used for updating purposes. I thought Cleanmgr+ would cleanup the update files and Storage Sense would show 0GB update file size. Bye the way, the same action took place on 4 machines all running W10 Pro upgrading to Build 17763.316.

A few days ago I saw a post about Cleanmgr+ 0.4.0 and I have been checking out the releases since. I have seen improvements. Thank you, Belim!
There is one BIG missing feature/aspect to me compared to Microsoft Disk Cleanup (Cleanmgr) and that is the lack of an estimate of the storage space that each item (that could be cleaned) is using and, therefore, the storage space that would be freed up if an item was selected and cleaned.
When I use Microsoft Disk Cleanup, I look at #1 how much storage space each item is using and #2 what each item is to decide on which items I am going to select and have cleaned. See the example picture below.
With Cleanmgr+ currently, I have no idea how much storage space each item is currently using and which ones I really want to focus on. I need and want that information to decide which items I want to clean, or at least which ones are more important to me.
Cleating out prefetch data does not speed up anything. I cannot have any faith in a program that thinks that it does. the prefetch contents get cleaned automatically by the OS anyway. Only *one* thing can speed up the use of prefetch data.
Just found your program and might donate. I realize how much work this is and was curious about a few things that I can't find. How would I add a program say Photoshop Elements? How can one search in the forums? I clicked on both search icons but never got to the input spot for item to search for? Thanks for this great program.
