Disk cleanup files: "PER USER QUEUED ERROR REPORT"

I use Vista Premium home edition on a Dell deminsion E521.

When running the system acessary tool, "Disk Clean Up", after the program
searches for eligible files, it lists two or three files by the name "PER
USER QUEUED ERROR REPORT", which are very large (in excess of 1 GB!) I have
not checked these files for deletion. I ran a check on google to find out
what these files are, and came up with one discussuion group that lists a
similar query. The individual checked the boxes and ran the clean up tool.
The clean up removed all of his data files.

Why is this "PER USER QUEUED ERROR REPORT" coming up and reading other
discussion threads it appears that several users of Vista have have run the
utility only to discover that all of their data files have been erased, and
that they have had to re-install Vista!

Since I am not the only one apparently having this problem, it appears to be
a major bug with Vista!

What exactly is your "problem"? You haven't deleted these files yet, so you
haven't lost anything. So what's the problem?

After hours of research and cursing when my own disk cleanup decided to
kill my OS, I figured I'd try to find a cure - and I have!


Open Regedit (start - run - regedit) and go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\VolumeCaches

There you will find 4 keys called Windows error reporting.
Now if you look closely you will see that one (or more) is missing the
Folder string.
Now, lets get to fixing it.

If you are in the " Windows Error Reporting Archive Files " key

Right click - New - Expandable String Value.

Call it Folder and use the following entry:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive

If you are in the " Windows Error Reporting Queue Files " key

use: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue

If you're in the " Windows Error Reporting System Archive Files " key

use: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive

and if you're in the " Windows Error Reporting System Queue Files " key

use: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue

This worked for me atleast, i tried removing the Folder string and the
bug was back, hope this helps guys! [image:

WOW man, this helped me so much..... Disk cleanup was reporting 275GB for two of these reports (each 275GB), and I have 120 total (well windows is 70, the rest is for sabayon). Just watch out for those spaces in the first two folder paths (it will work even if there are spaces, but it won't get scanned).
Anyway I was looking around and I saw that I don't have folder key for System error minidump files - and I noticed that cleanup hangs a bit longer on this one. Do u know where these are located (that is what path I should put). Thank you so much for this discovery :))))))

Re: Disk cleanup files: "PER USER QUEUED ERROR REPORT"

I had this same problem....and yes when i selected these files to be be
deleted it ereased all my files........the fix that you provided did
work...however every time i run my registry cleaner the problem occurs
again...i think my reg cleaner (NETCOM 3)is deleting the strings...i should
be able to ignore these files for deletion next time. It is curious why
this all of a sudden happened...I have been running vista now for over a year
and never had this problem...then all of a sudden it appeared about a week
ago...I wounder if it somehow happened with a windows update. Any way I will
update this post to let you know if it is my reg cleaner that is deleting the
strings.......whatever you do dont select those files to be deleted in disk
clean up...I had to reinstall vista...it ereased everything

Re: Disk cleanup files: "PER USER QUEUED ERROR REPORT"

Yup. Exclude the Volume Caches location when using the so called "registry cleaners". Or even better, don't use registry cleaners at all :-) IMHO, they breaks things more than what they fix.

My guess would be your problem started about the time that you
installed your registry cleaner - those things cause more problems than
they solve.

The thing to remember is that there is nothing a "registry cleaner" can
do that you cannot do yourself using built-in Windows utilities, such as
RegEdit. And if the thought of editing the registry is a frightening
one, then you have even more reason to NOT use a "registry cleaner".

Re: Disk cleanup files: "PER USER QUEUED ERROR REPORT"

A modest possible 'work-around' regarding this issue: If you go to Control
Panel|Problem Reports and Solutions|Clear solution and problem history and
say Yes, then a subsequent Disk Cleanup will have no entries for the
possibly troublesome 'error report' categories. I have done this when I was
suspicious of the entries (although I have never used a registry cleaner and
never really had the big problem discussed). But it is *a* way to get rid
of the archived error reporting entries in Disk Cleanup. Not really a 'work
around', but FWIW...

Re: Disk cleanup files: "PER USER QUEUED ERROR REPORT"

>> subsequent Disk Cleanup will have no entries for the possibly troublesome 'error report' categories.

Disk Cleanup would still list "Error report" handler showing (erroneously) that it occupies GBs of space.

A modest possible 'work-around' regarding this issue: If you go to Control
Panel|Problem Reports and Solutions|Clear solution and problem history and
say Yes, then a subsequent Disk Cleanup will have no entries for the
possibly troublesome 'error report' categories. I have done this when I was
suspicious of the entries (although I have never used a registry cleaner and
never really had the big problem discussed). But it is *a* way to get rid
of the archived error reporting entries in Disk Cleanup. Not really a 'work
around', but FWIW...

Yup. Exclude the Volume Caches location when using the so called "registry
cleaners". Or even better, don't use registry cleaners at all :-) IMHO, they
breaks things more than what they fix.

I had this same problem....and yes when i selected these files to be be
deleted it ereased all my files........the fix that you provided did
work...however every time i run my registry cleaner the problem occurs
again...i think my reg cleaner (NETCOM 3)is deleting the strings...i should
be able to ignore these files for deletion next time. It is curious why
this all of a sudden happened...I have been running vista now for over a
year
and never had this problem...then all of a sudden it appeared about a week
ago...I wounder if it somehow happened with a windows update. Any way I will
update this post to let you know if it is my reg cleaner that is deleting
the
strings.......whatever you do dont select those files to be deleted in disk
clean up...I had to reinstall vista...it ereased everything
