    Hey guys,

    you remember Microsoft Disk Clean-up and the new Storage Sense in Windows 10? You know also that Microsoft will be retiring Disk Cleanup tool and replace it with Storage Sense in Windows 10?

    I have combined the best of both with Burnbytes.

    The technical base is a 1:1 replica of the classic Microsoft Disk Cleanup. This one has been rebuilt as open source for quite some time and I have refreshed it visually.

    I'd like the community to revive it

    You can read about it here

    Can some of the mods rename the topic to "Burnbytes (Open-source replica of Microsoft Disk Clean-up )" Many thanks :)

    @EASTER
    We have to wait and see if anyone else wants to support the development. I have always been of the opinion that you do not need more than the Disk clean-up utility.

    Either way things pan out with it, that's still an interesting idea pieced together.
    Simple and yet has usefulness.
