  2. For an SSD using Windows built in Trim function should work. There are SSDs sold have a security feature such as some Kingston SSDs, etc., although enabling such as feature might detail having to reinstall the OS.

  5. Well, this is heresy, but here goes: Remove the multiple pass overwrite option on secure file deletion and Drive Wiper, leaving one zero-byte pass only, saving decades of lost time and tons of CO2 in wasted energy. Surprisingly for a tech and science dominated field, the multipass myth has achieved unquestionable god-like status. It was thoroughly debunked over twenty years ago. Chances of being adopted - close to zero.
  6. Hello, I like this Browser and other tools from Piriform. When I started using CCBrowser I noticed that it had a special function for video downloading from any website. That was very useful and easy to use. But now I can't find this function. Can you help me to switch on that function again? Thank you beforehand who answers this question with full explanation!!!

  8. The Ignored Files includes live files, zero-byte files, system files etc, which you would not normally want to recover. Also if there is any file name or path in the aptly named Filename or Path box then this will restrict the results, possibly down to zero. The free and paid version have the same recovery facilities.
  9. Hello from Germany! Im trying to install the lastest ccleaner release (ccsetup578.exe) in silent mode using these set of parameters: ccsetup578.exe /S /D=C:\Program Files\CCleaner /L=1031 Works fine, but when another user logs in, the ccleaner gui shows up in english. Is there a parameter to install the cleaner for ALL users in german language? Thx and best regards Peter
  10. I'll raise a glass to that. PS. Enjoy your Sunday roast, however you choose to carve it.
  11. "Reserved for future use" meets the Windows 10 registry LOL. One of my OCD friends who likes to "run a tight clean ship", did not like that he just excludes the entry, instead of [a] understanding it and [b] fixing it. Yes, I'm talking about the famous Speech Toast Notifier, interesting name... The ironic thing is that I do definitely believe in registry cleaners, once a program [The 25th anniversary edition of Paragon's Hard Disk Manager] installed, and it was supposed to run at boot time (when Windows starts), but it did not - because the registry entry for it (in the RunOnce startup
  12. Hi, 1984 Good to see you again. It's been a while.
  13. Hi, Can anyone explain me why all the found files during a scan performed by Recuva could all be ignored and not listed in the result list after the scan? After the scan, the list is empy and there's "Found 0 files(s) (663 028 ignored) in 6 minutes 25 seconds." written in the status bar. I already performed a scan and recovered files from another folder on the same disk. Could this be due to the limitation of the free version of the software? Anything else? Thank you for your kind help. Cyril
  14. Thanks for this information and you are right I had to click Keep on the download bar!
  15. To begin with, there is no software that has ever been made or, likely, ever will be made that can render data "100% unrecoverable". There's a reason that large corporations, governments, and so on use giant shredders to destroy drives that they wish to make unrecoverable rather than software. With that in mind, for conventional (non-solid state) hard drives, you can turn on Secure Deletion in CCleaner's options, as described here: https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us/articles/360048321751-Change-CCleaner-for-Windows-settings#h_01ET84PW80ETAMZ00XDRC8NJY9 - this will make CCleaner's cl
  16. Hi guys, I need a software eraser to be sure to securely wipe browsing data from microsoft edge (I think that also in anonymous navigation I leave data on pc).. Which version of CCleaner do you suggest me? I need a tool that overwrite data and not only erase.. Please let me know if for this aim you think there are other software better than CC.. Thanks for your time!
  17. Yeah, storage drives that have personal files on it are a very grey area for allot of us to do a warranty claim on. It might be a different thing if SSDs were still very expensive even for small capacity sizes but that's not an issue anymore.
  18. Didn't notice the duplicate tree rules list. I just opened CCleaner and I see that both WINDOWS and APPLICATIONS rules lists are duplicated. See attached screen capture. No. When I click on / open CCleaner from desktop icon / link the window presented is clear/blank only the left tree is displayed, after clicking the Analyze button, the list is presented. As mentioned in OP, duplicate references occur intermittently. Home screen = Custom Clean; see attached screen capture NOTE: CCleaner has been updated to 5.78.8558 (64-bit) No. There are no custom or saved .I
  19. Malheureusement, cette réponse est probablement «les fichiers sont perdus». Recuva ne peut pas réparer vos fichiers; il ne peut récupérer les données que telles qu'elles sont écrites sur le disque au moment de la récupération. En tant que tel, si ces données supprimées ont été endommagées, écrasées ou autrement corrompues, c'est précisément ainsi que Recuva tentera de les récupérer. Dans cet esprit, vous pourrez peut-être essayer de réparer les fichiers récupérés. Pour les fichiers image comme les fichiers .JPG, vous pouvez essayer le logiciel IrfanView situé ici: https://www.irfanvi
  20. Bonjours, Je n'arrive pas à lire les fichiers récupérer par Recuva. Que ce soit des PDF ou des JPEG. Quelqu'un a t-il une réponse à mon problème ?
  21. I'm not sure just what you mean by that, if you mean something else then let us know - but I suspect that you are talking about the CCleaner icon in the Sytem Tray? If so they you are the second this week to raise this query, and it isn't Smart Cleaning that is putting the icon there. "Keep CCleaner Updated Automatically", which was recently added as a bonus to CCleaner Free, now also runs a different background task if it is enabled and so Windows puts an icon in the tray. If you turn off Automatic Updating then the icon should disappear as it did for that other user earlier th
  22. You have to understand that not all users want background processes running without their permission, especially when they know these processes serve no real purpose other than keeping your software involved with more than it needs to be. When this was first introduced (after the parent company who shall not be named) acquired Piriform, it was annoying, but at least there was a way to prevent it. Then that option was sneakily removed, though the false framework is still in place to make it look like you have an option, you just don't. I tried removing the startup task, but every time I log ba

  24. Please double-check that you're using the latest version of CCleaner for best results (version 5.78 at the time of writing) - if not, you should be able to use the Check for Updates button at the bottom-right corner of the CCleaner window to update. If you're using this version already, or still have problems after updating, try restarting the computer and running the Health Check after the restart is complete, before you run any other programs. You can also try going to Tools > Software Updater, then attempt to update any software that it detects updates for manually. If there's
  25. Thanks John, very much appreciated. I'll have a look at LastPass. All the best, John
  26. It's really in Iolo's hands entirely; it's not feasible for us to run an extension 'store' of our own (plus, Iolo would still need to publish on said store even if we offered it), and it's entirely up to them whether they choose to implement an installation procedure for CCleaner Browser as they have for other browsers like Google Chrome. (For what it's worth, I can say I personally use LastPass and it works quite nicely with CCleaner Browser as well as Firefox. It's also on the Chrome Web Store, which is how I added it to CCleaner Browser. I know changing may not be feasible for you, b
