Files and programs that have been downloaded using Configuration Manager are usually deleted automatically whenever space is needed within the cache. Because of this, it will be rare that you will need to manually delete files from the cache. If it is necessary, the following procedure will help you clear the downloaded programs and files from the cache.

Advanced settings are visible only to local administrators.
