I've got some end user machines in my company. Nothing spectacular. Dell Optiplex 3050, i5, 16RAM and 128GB HD, and running windows 10 Pro.
Lately their C drives have been filling up with pretty much no space left. In a couple of situations 100s of MB left and then I scurry in an attempt to reclaim some space.
After running Treesize I found out that Candy Crush and Hidden City Mystery of Shadows were filling up the C drive with updates. The specific location of these updates is the "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps" folder. An example of an update folder is this: C:\ProgramFiles\WindowsApps\king.com.CandyCrushSaga_1.1471.5.0_x86__kgqvnymyfvs32. Each update folder is between 100mb and 400mb. There are literally dozens, if not hundreds of these folders in that location. The 2 applications (CC and HCMoS) aren't even installed on the machines.
I've tried taking ownership of the Windows apps folder and deleting these unwanted updates but they seem to come right back. I did some research and tried a powershell fix and another a group policy fix and neither have helped. Anyone have any solution for this? Please please. This has been ruining my past few days because of a few machines going through this.
