  1. Need a method of excluding files/folders from getting cleaned in the temp directory

     

     

     

    I want to prevent certain folders (or files) in my TEMP directory from getting cleaned. These folders are used by a WEB application for keeping settings current from last usage (otherwise I have to setup again).

     

    For my purposes, this almost renders CCleaner useless for this machine. I have to go back to manual methods.

     

    Is there a way other than moving the folders (to somewhere else) each time I want to clean the TEMP folder?

     

    What do others think (of having this option)? I would like to have the option if needed.

     

    Thanks,

  2. I see that this topic is again getting overwhelmed with responses . . . .

    I also wish that CCleaner had an EXCLUSIONS feature. That way you could keep Temporary Files checked, and it would remove everything in that folder EXCEPT the things you want to keep.

     

    Example 1:

     

    Delete all Temporary Files EXCEPT for...

     

    %userprofile%/Local Settings/Temp/[foldername]

    %userprofile%/Local Settings/Temp/Desktop.ini

     

    Example 2:

     

    Delete all Recent Files EXCEPT for...

     

    %userprofile%/Recent/Desktop.ini

     

    A similar EXCLUSIONS feature for the registry would also be nice. It would clean everything in a particular key EXCEPT for certain values.

     

     

     


  3. uncheck Temporary Files in the cleaning option. it's under "System"

     

     

     

     

     

    That is fairly obvious . . . Let me re-phrase this:

     

    If I want the temp folder cleaned - with the exception of a set of folders (that are in the temp folder) that I do not want to get cleaned - What are the options? Is there a proceedure to accomplish this.

     

     

    Thanks

  5. Temo is temp is temp.......? Why not move the folder if it is not temp?

     

     

     

     

    The program (web based from remote server) uses the temp area for saving it's settings. I have no control over this configuration.

     

    I currently move the folders when I do clean out the temp space but this becomes a pain after a while.

     

    I know that someone would say," Why don't you just move it?". I really don't want to have to think about it when I clean things out.

  7. DjLizard, Sorry I did not get back to you . . . I am going to Download the latest version (1.19) and see if it has gone away.

     

    If I get it again, I will report back. Hell, if it does not come back, I'll let you know.

  8. <_< I receive the following error message after running the issue mode: Error fixing all registry issues. Subscript out of range.

     

     

     

     

    Asked about this about a month ago . . . No one seemed too interested. I too get this error consistantly on XP, Win98 and Win 95 (don't ask).

     

    I wll enter my message again in this thread . . . I think this is a bug, but knowbody has confirmed or denied yet . . .

  9. Just tried to delete some "unused Extentions" from the registry. got the error at the end of the removal process. Here is the message:

     

    Error fixing all registry issues

    Subscript out of range

     

    There was 38 registry issues being removed at this attempt. It does appear that all the selected issues were removed (that I had checked).

     

    Another interesting thing that happened: Since all the entries that I selected were the same (Unused file extentions) When the first dialog box popped up asking if I wanted to "Fix all Issues" I selected that choice. But after I clicked on the button, I had another box pop up asking the same thing (with the same message about the file extension being unused - though a different reg entry). After I clicked on "All Issues" again, the error message pops up. this seems to fairly consistant for this error message (this is the result for two runs on my machine and once for my brother-in-law's)

     

    This was on an XP machine and I also reproduced this on 98 and 95

     

    This was mentioned in the CCleaner discussion section and after a couple weeks of no activity, I decided to bring it into this forum due to the fact that I do not think that this normal fuctionality. I think that this may be a bug (or at least abnormal). The versions that this happens with are 1.18.099 and the previous release
