Deleting Windows.old issue 

Every time I run Cleaner+ it launches into deleting Windows.old, taking ages to remove hundreds of files again. How is this possible? Does it mean that the files are not being deleted at all, despite being reported as deleted What is going on?

Hello,

Cleanmgr+ shows a command prompt to trace the progress. You are right. This takes sometimes a while and more. So, the files are being reported as deleted? The Windows.old directory does not count fewer files? Have you tried deleting it with classic Cleanmgr.exe (from Microsoft) ? If this is completed successfully, i will have to take further look. Please let me know.
