Thread: Disk Cleanup

  1. #1
    My disk cleanup does'nt seem to want to complete anymore
    I'm using XP home. Everytime I run the disk cleanup the cleanmgr.exe
    uses up my cpu. My computer is still fine to use during this process
    but the disk cleanup stays at 2 bars forever if anybody know what
    to do it would be much appreciated

    The same problem is still occuring. If I check my task manager before I run the cleanup I notice that my system idle process is using 99 on the CPU but when I run the cleanup the system idle becomes 00 and the cleangmr.exe becomes 99. I will try your advice again though.

    I used Disc clean up on my home XP and now my computer quit working. The details are in the thread I started in Hardwareworld titled Big XP Problem.

    Could be a read write error on your drive, run scandisk & do a thorough scan.

    Thanks for the advice GRIM but it just so happens that just last night I ran the check disk for scan and attempt recovery for bad sectors and even automatically fix file system errors. Then I tried to run my disk clean up again and left my computer on all night. When I went to sleep it was at three bars, to no suprise at all it was still on three bars when I woke up.

    YOU DIDNT SAY 'COMPRESS OLD FILES' was where it was stuck at now did you.

    sorry, I have been up toooooo long.....I just glanced at your post and took off to find the answer.

    I just helped a friend of mine with the same problem....I cant find the page though...It said that this was 'very' common on xp home machines.....we fixed it, but I cant remember the site and didnt want to take a guess, but for now.....we did something with turning off compressing old files and it worked.

    Let me do my homework and I will get back to you....if i dont fall aleep on my keyboard again.
