Hello all,

I got a quandary for you.  Have some laptops that have their C drive nearly full with system files. Investigating, the problem folder is C:\Windows\CCM\ServiceData\Messaging\EndpointQurues\LS_ScheduledCleanup which takes up about 180 GB. Opening the folder, it is filled with .msg (72 KB) and .que (2 KB) files. There must be well over a million files in here.

 

Been trying to delete it, but no luck. Been looking online with no success. DiskClean and storage sense won't clean out the files.

 

Not sure if anyone else has run into this also, but figured I'd ask. Any help would be apriciated

Try enable displaying Hidden Files and System Hidden files and see if you see anything there?
Do you have any Anti-Malware product installed or are you using Windows Defender?

Hello
if you have windows protection enabled to remove unnecessary restore points if of course you have backups it can help!

Of course, immediately manually save a new restore point it is necessary that the repair tools and file history have the ability to work properly !
