select the system files tab

First, we need to load up Wisecare by double-clicking the icon on the desktop. Next, we need to click on the link that points to System Cleaner.

 

 

select the drive you need

At the top of the screen you will see a drop-down list, with a list of the local hard drive or hard drives shown, click this.

 

 

select the scan button

I have several drives on my computer but my system drive is the R: drive. Yours will probably be the C: drive. Either way, Wisecare will indicate which is the system drive by showing the version of windows you have installed i.e. Win10 Enterprise. If you have multiple drives, uncheck all those drives leaving only the Windows system drive checked.

 

 

select the clean button

When Wisecare has finished scanning the system files, it shows a list of files that can be deleted as they are no longer required. These are the ‘tmp’ and ‘chk’ files, ‘tmp’ being temporary files and ‘chk’ being check files that are fragmented files created by Windows. Now simply go ahead and clean those files out of the system by clicking the link Clean.

 

 

finalise and reboot the system

The system reports back that some of the files cannot be cleaned until a reboot. This was quite a quick procedure so when you are satisfied, reboot your system and move on to the next step by restarting Wisecare again from your desktop.
