Manage drive space with Storage Sense

Available on Windows 10 and 11, Storage Sense can automatically free up drive space for you by getting rid of items that you don't need, like temporary files, like items in your downloads folder and items in your Recycle Bin.

Storage Sense also allows you to manage locally available cloud content. If these files have not been used for a while, Storage Sense will automatically revert them to cloud storage only.
