Tweaking the Disk Cleanup utility

Posted in Windows XP by Community Submission

When using the Disk Cleanup, if you never want to "Compress Old Files" (which is often annoying and takes a long time) follow this tip:




Locate and then click the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Compress Old Files

On the Edit menu, click Export, in case you change your mind.

On the Edit menu again now click Delete.

Thanks to Microsoft for this tip:;en-us;812930
