    Disc cleanup


    I like to regularly clean out my temp files and also clean out my restore points but I can't find how to do this in Win 8...I went to help on Microsoft and followed how you are supposed to do it but ' Free up disk space by deleting unnecessary files' is not appearing.

    Delete files using Disk Cleanup

    Can anyone tell me where to find it?

    Thanks in advance
