Microsoft Windows installation and update stores some files for information or as default accessories. But most of these are not needed and should be deleted to clean up more free disk space.

There a lot of methods suggested by experts and Microsoft. Though those methods and tricks are genuine and working too. But following such complicated techniques is time consuming and can be dangerous for novice users as they might remove some systems files. Moreover, most of users today don’t like to put their hands in complicated and manual cleanups.

There are a lot of system cleaning and optimizing software available over the Internet, including both free and paid. But most of them are working on almost same pattern. These tools cleanup junk and temporary files but Windows installation and cache files are not touched. Anyhow, each of them have their own special working pattern and motto that they are following.

Wise Cleaner introduced a system slimming feature in their toolset, which is quite useful, especially designed for cleaning up Windows installation default files and Windows update cache. It include wallpapers, sample music, sample videos, language packs (Japanese, Korean, Chinese etc.), Windows installer baseline cache and some others.

You can select what you want to delete and what to exclude by making a selection before slimming down. Removing these files can give you free space up to 1GB or sometimes more disk space.

Deleting these files is completely safe. I have tested it and nothing gone bad but got more free disk space. It automatically creates a Windows restore point before performing clean up operation. Restore point helps you get back to previous working system settings if some errors happen. So no need to worry about crashes or errors. You can always restore your system if you find some error due to removing such files.

Using Wise Care system slimming is very simple. However, here is a simple guide for you:
