This can be done manually:
  • Click "Start," "Run," and Type cleanmgr.exe then "OK."
  • Select the drive to clean (i.e. Hard Drive C:)
  • Wait while "Space is calculated."
  • Under "Files to Delete," make sure "Compress Old Files" is either Checked or Unchecked (depending on the desired result), then click "OK."

Regards,
Brooks
