Windows 7: Disk clean-up failed after deleting Datastore.edb

Disk clean-up failed after deleting Datastore.edb

I had to free some space space on disk C: using treesize and soon I realized that I don't have anything that I can delete from user side do much so I was looking at big files in Windows directory and put my eyes on DataStore.edb 1GB size.
After searching an looking on internet I saw lots of posts and article saying that there's no harm just that I will lose updates history that can be remade. So to be safe, I moved the DataStore file to my PC in case i will need it. Now I had lots of free space but short after I was having a lot less free space than I had before! less than 1 GB and Windows is asking for a restart to install update.. Datasore.edb is now arround 8MB After checking a little bit, i think Installer and winsxs folder filled up.
Can this be fixed somehow ? It will free up after restart ?

What could I do to fix this ?

Welcome to our forum.

We need more information. Use this tutorial by Brink to help with that.
Make sure we see what security programs you have installed and your power supply.

System Info - See Your System Specs

I suggest you leave winsxs alone.

Very confusing to me.

-------------------------------

30 gigs disk space is not enough for Windows 7 to be realistic usable for much of anything.

We still need your system specs as i requested in my post #2.
