"Free Up Space Now" not showing list of items for removal

In Settings, Storage and click on Free Up Space Now used to populate with several items to choose from for cleanup similar to Disk Cleanup. Just nothing showing now. This is still occurring in Build 17661 as it has been in the last couple Skippy Builds.

Upvoted Pauli for you also. I must have missed it but I admit I do not use Feedback that much anymore. If I am bored I will look at the recent posts, but find most more entertaining now than realistic. FH really changed when MS opened it up for everyone.

"Free up space now" does work in safe mode.

Also you can use the old Disk Cleanup in Control Panel Administrative Tools.

I found that in Settings\System   Storage   tab and then click on Change how we free up space automaticlly.

Then on the next page that opens you get a check box that can be set to remove all the old stuff.

This remove work on mu 17661, but Remove Files stay grey long and nothing happened on screen until scan was completed then all items were shown at once, not like 17134 where items appears one by one.

This "Free up space now" tool didn't offer to remove previous installation files, it act like Disk Cleanup without Clean up system files option.

In build 17134 Free up show also system files.

EDIT: On second attempt "Free up space now" tool didn't work at all. Nothing to delete nothing = nothing to show? At leas it should inform "End of scan" or something?

P.S. I like this new snipping experience. Take snap shot with Win+Shift+S and notification open, click that and Screen Sketch app opens, make annotations and save.
