.Net framework creates multiple config.cch files (located in \WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\(version)\CONFIG folder and in individual users data folders.
It also keeps old files in NET\Framework\{version}\Temporary ASP.NET Files folder .

The Windows Disk Cleanup Utility should be .Net aware and suggest to delete these temporary files.

By the way, it would be better if cached config.cch files will be stored in some temporary sub-directory, not together with text config files.

Thanks for the suggestion. It's an issue with Connect that we can't mark these as 'suggestion accepted' is appreciated though!

Thanks Michael, yes we will certainly take the suggestion. The 'by design' option is really the only option for us to track this sort of issue. Doesn't mean we're ignoring that, just that this system was not really designed to track there. We are tracking this separately tho'

It is SUGGESTION (not bug) to change DESIGN of Windows Disk Cleanup Utility.
So resolution "By Design" doesn't make sense
