I'm configuring GPO's for Windows Storage Sense. The GPO's are very straight-forward and Storage Sense itself is a simple concept. One thing that bothers me though, what exactly does Storage Sense classify as "Temporary files"?
I'm attempting to do some basic testing against storage sense to make sure it's working as expected and I can't get it to clean my C:\Windows\Temp or C:\Users<username>\AppData\Local\Temp and Downloads directories. I'm filling up my drive with junk to trigger a low disk space event, even changing timestamps to back date them to make them look older but storage sense just won't touch them. I have several GB's worth of data scattered in directories that should be getting nuked and they're left untouched.
I'm sure it's trying to be smarter than just blowing everything older than 30 days up and I'm fine with that. I'd just like to know what the rules are so I can explain it.
Is there a technical breakdown of what exactly (directory\file basis) is evaluated and removed by storage sense?
