Disk cleanup can be useful if there is a lot of old or incorrect data on the computer. The cleanup then ensures that this data and/or incorrectly formatted, duplicate and unimportant information is updated or deleted. This is how you proceed with Windows version 11:

  • Click on the start menu of your computer. This is usually displayed in the lower taskbar as an icon with four squares:
  • Then enter the term “Disk Cleanup” in the “Search” field. The highest match will then be “Disk Cleanup System” in the first place.
  • Open this “App” by clicking on “Run as administrator”. Then select the drive (C:) and you will be taken directly to the system data cleanup.
  • You can also delete updates, old Defender and the previous Windows version (windows.old) if you wish.
