Hi all,just ran my disk cleanup like I do once a week.It showed windows update cleanup,size,3.99TB.I don't understand because my C drive is not even nearly that big.

Could someone please explain,assuming that TB means terabyte.

Must be a glitch Windows updates wont grow that size were you able to delete the Windows update?
1024 Gigabytes equal 1 Terabytes.

Well you know there is no way Windows updates taking 3.99TB drive space so like i said its a glitch don't worry about it you can also use CCleaner to delete temporary files.

You are very welcome, and there is no way Windows update is that size but you can just delete the windows updates and check for new updates.
