when running Disk CleanUp from windows xp, starts good but suddenly it gets stuck in the compress old files checking....i gave it time but it just doesn´t get through.....it was working correct but this happend the last time i ran disk cleanup.....any suggestions?
not to sound stupid(though i usually do), but how much time did you give it? because sometimes mine compresses the old files for 5 minutes before it continues on.
but then again, i have a lot of big files that are being compressed, plus i only have about 300 megs left on my hdd.
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and then click the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Compress Old Files
On the Edit menu, click Delete.
When prompted to "Confirm Key Delete," click Yes.
Quit Registry Editor
