    What exactly do you want to do? Format the drive and clean it up? Or cleanup things like old TEMP and Internet Cache files?

    Hi if you mean temp..cookie files etc.
    IE>tools>internet options>temp>.cookie>history.
    Or D/load Easycleaner.

    Use registry and unnecessary files only..not duplicates..many are needed.
    In unnecessary files>click top 4 boxes.
    Read all info.

    You would get a better answer if you were more specific as to what files you're trying to get rid of or what you're trying to do.

    You classify yourself as a Beginner, so you need to be real careful about getting rid of files, unless you know what you're doing.

    What version of Windows are you using?
