    Next to the fix of the cleanup of the Windows Component Store in v1.1.1.451 of Cleanmgr+, i have decided not to compile this version with Resource Hacker anymore.

    Resource Hacker is a reliable program that allows you to view, modify, rename, delete, and export resources embedded into an executable file.

    I usually had no problem with it until the last versions did not trigger more and more false positives. I always modifed my Application resources with it and also the Cleanmgr+.exe (Versioning information etc.) and finally compiled the .EXE with it. After adding just one resource file, numerous antivirus software tagged it with a red flag here an false positive.

    Maybe someone has an explanation for it, unfortunately I do not :(

    Today, I'm pleased to announce the stable release of Cleanmgr+

    While the classic Disk Cleanup is still available in Windows 10 version 1809, it is only a matter of time before the tool is removed from default Windows 10 installations. You’re now recommended to use the new storage cleanup tool instead.

    The Disk Cleanup experience (“cleanmgr.exe”) is being deprecated. We’re retaining the Disk Cleanup tool for compatibility reasons. There’s no need to worry since Storage Sense’s functionality is a superset of what the legacy Disk Cleanup provides,” writes Aniket Naravanekar, Product Manager Leading Workstation at Microsoft. I reported also here.

    Cleanmgr+ comes with all the features that the original Cleanmgr.exe offers plus several extra ones. It uses identical technical terms and descriptions and does exactly the same thing that the classic Windows Disk Clean-up utility does.

    Microsoft will be soon removing the Disk Clean-up Tool (Cleanmgr.exe) from Windows 10 PCs. It is a Windows system tool which lets you delete the unwanted files cluttered in your PC thereby freeing some space on your disk drive

    Disk Cleanup isn’t going away immediately but is on its way out the door. Microsoft says it will keep the utility around for compatibility reasons.

    Whatever version of Windows you’re using, Disk Cleanup has always worked the same way. Right-click a drive, select “Properties,” and then click the “Disk Cleanup” button to launch it. It still works the same way on Windows 10 today. You can also just launch it from the Start menu or run the cleanmgr.exe program.
