This is a very simple menu. It helps find which device drivers are not installed, what types of applications were removed, and what extensions were re-associated.

Regain Disk Space Consumed by Windows 10 Installation Process:

Reclamation menu is very important and helps you regain disk space consumed by Windows 10 installation process. What this menu does is it automatically scans previous Windows installation folder and other stuff and then automatically launches Windows Disk Cleanup tool to clean the system.
