    Windows 8 Evolved Disk Cleanup


    It appears that Windows 8 will come with an overhauled Disk Cleanup utility, or at least this is what can be inferred from the recently leaked Windows 8
    Build 6.1.7850 6.1.7850.0.winmain_win8m1.100922-1508 made its way in the wild this week and is available for download from various illegal sources including torrent trackers.

    It has a nice GUI. But appears to be a bit buggy- the "Cleaning files" dialog box doesnt go away on its own, neither does the progress bar move progressively. So one needs to look at the hdd led to figure out. And make sure you close the browser first otherwise the temp files quantity changes very confusingly.
