Deleting Old Files
Is there any way to automatically delete or uninstall files that havent been
used in a set amount of time? Say half of the programs and files on my
computer, I have never used, is there any ways to get rid of them alltogether
without manually going in and deleting them one by one?

All help appreciated

Re: Deleting Old Files
Hi,

Basically, no. Programs have to be uninstalled, not just deleted. Disk
Cleanup can be used to clean up temp files, there's nothing that will
automatically remove files that haven't been accessed in a certain time
frame. While I can see where a tool or setting like that might be useful, it
would really tick my wife off if it were accidentally enabled and erased the
past 4 years worth of pictures.
