Windows 98 Disk Cleanup

The Windows 98 Disk Cleanup tool is designed to free up space on your hard drive easily. Disk Cleanup will start automatically when you only have 3% free space remaining .

To start the utility, choose "Start", "Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools", "Disk Cleanup". Choose your hard drive (C:) as the drive you would like to clean up. Click "OK". The program then opens a dialog with two tabs: "Disk Cleanup" and "More Options". 

The Disk Cleanup tab includes a "Files to remove" list box, there are four basic check box items, "Temporary Internet Files", "Downloaded Program Files", "Recycle Bin", and "Temporary files" (you may see other choices but the listed ones here are what we are concerned with). 

The Disk Cleanup tool helps you find and delete unnecessary files. If you have any doubts about deleting a category, such as "Temporary Internet Files", choose the "View Files" button to see a description of the files marked for deletion. You can manually select only those you want to delete. 

Before you delete files with Disk Cleanup, make sure you know what you're deleting. The first two items you'll find in the "Files to remove" list are "Temporary Internet Files" and "Downloaded Program Files", both of which refer to directories that Internet Explorer uses for files it downloads to your hard disk. 

The "Files to remove" list shows how much disk space you will reclaim by deleting each item. If you will gain only a few megabytes by selecting these two choices, you may want to uncheck the boxes. 

Next on the "Files to remove list" is "Recycle Bin" checking it will empty it. The "Temporary files" option lets you delete files that various programs have put on your disk. These are almost always safe to delete. 

In the "More Options" tab, you will find 2 programs 1) Windows components and 2) Installed programs. 

By clicking on the "clean up" button under either program, this will remove components or installed programs that are not being used.

Use Caution When Deleting These Files!!!
