    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.
