Delete content in the /windowsapps/deleted folder

  1. #11


    There is about 2G of stuff in that folder, all apps that were already 'uninstalled'..

    Not sure why there is ANYTHING in the 'deleted' folder.. Why is there even a 'deleted' folder? If stuff lands there, apparently it is not deleted at all..

    Wow! That's strange! My whole Apps folder is only a GB large.
    I uninstalled some apps - NOTHING!
