  1. The process that gets higher CPU priority will indirectly get higher disk priority too -- the lower-priority applications will be running slower, so they won't be making as frequent I/O requests.
  2. My understanding is that would depend on the total available bandwidth of the controller, which is usually much more than the bandwidth that one drive on one SATA port can utilize (at least when we're talking about regular mechanical drives, perhaps not all SSD drives). Even a single 3G/6G SATA connection isn't fully utilized with platter drives, except in burst operations involving the drives' internal cache. For proof, think of RAID striping, and how it produces speed benefits on any old home PC by dividing the workload of a file operation between two or more drives. RAID-0 writes to two drives at once, getting the same operation done generally in around half the time. If that's true then chances are there would be a performance gain from defragging drives in parallel.
  3. Not sure if this was suggested yet, but it would be super-cool if we could defrag multiple drives at once. As long as they're separate physical drives, especially in a multi-core computer, it seems feasible, no?
  4. Just want to voice my support for the suggestion to include network adapter info. Other I/O info would also be good, such as what types of adapters are installed, ports available, etc. This is kind of a gaping hole in a program that's otherwise looking pretty sweet. Just FYI, the competitor to beat, in my mind, is PC Wizard. I don't doubt it'll happen soon, but just saying
  5. I agree there should be a "messengers" group/tab etc. For now I made my own addition to Winapp2.ini for AIM 6, if anyone is interested. ;AIM 6 starts[iM Logs]Section=AIM 6DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\AIM6\aim6.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%userprofile%\My Documents\AIMLogger|*.*|RECURSE[screen Name Data]Section=AIM 6DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\AIM6\aim6.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%LocalAppData%\AOL OCP\AIM|*.*|RECURSERegKey1=HKCU\Software\America Online\AIM6\UsersRegKey2=HKCU\Software\America Online\AIM6|UserListRegKey3=HKCU\Software\America Online\AIM6|CurrentUserRegKey4=HKCU\Software\America Online\AIM6\HashedPasswordsRegKey5=HKCU\Software\America Online\AIM6\OptionsRegKey6=HKCU\Software\America Online\AIM6\Passwords;AIM 6 ends
  6. Good point, thanks. I updated the code in my original post.
  7. Sounds great. I simplified my original posting of the code, to show just the code as revised by you and Metalj (and crediting you both), since it's so much better than my original code anyway, and this way people won't need to read through the whole thread.
  8. I did submit it a couple days ago, but it was my original code without your/metalj's changes. I guess I'll submit it again now.
  9. Awesome metalj, I didn't know you could enter a custom section name. They should put that in the docs, unless its there and I missed it. Now Iron comes up basically like other browsers would.
  10. Good idea. I've added that to the post above.
  11. Code updated - I've added a line to the code in my post above: "FileKey8=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default|Web Data" This will clear Iron's saved suggestions for form input. Enjoy
  12. This post contains everything you need to add Iron support to CCleaner. There's no need to read through the entire thread (unless you feel like it). The code in this post has been edited to include all discussed changes and additions found later in the thread. To add Iron support to CCleaner, copy the code below and paste it onto the end of Winapp2.ini. Save the file and start (or restart) CCleaner. Then look for "SRWare Iron" in the "Applications" tab, at the end of the application list. (Winapp2.ini is a file you can download from this forum that supports the cleaning of custom applications. Simply place it in your CCleaner installation folder.) A couple of important notes: CCleaner's include/exclude cookies list won't have any effect on Iron. With the code below, if CCleaner is run with Iron's "Cookies" item checked, all of Iron's cookies will be deleted. If you didn't install Iron to the default folder, you must edit all lines that start with "DetectFile". Make sure they all read the correct path to Iron.exe on your computer. There is a DetectFile line for each item (Cookies, Cache, etc). The code below contains revisions offered further down this thread by users Andavari and Metalj. ; SRWare Iron starts[Cache]Section=SRWare IronDetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\SRWare Iron\Iron.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default\Cache|*.*[Cookies]Section=SRWare IronDetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\SRWare Iron\Iron.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default|Cookies[internet History]Section=SRWare IronDetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\SRWare Iron\Iron.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default|*History*FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default|ThumbnailsFileKey3=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default|Visited Links[Current Session]Section=SRWare IronDetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\SRWare Iron\Iron.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default|Current*[Last Session]Section=SRWare IronDetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\SRWare Iron\Iron.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default|Last*[Form Data]Section=SRWare IronDetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\SRWare Iron\Iron.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default|Web Data; SRWare Iron ends
  13. It's easy to tell which files were in the recycle bin, since those files have altered names -- uniform names beginning with "DC". Also, since I used Recuva in my test, which lists the paths of the deleted files, I could easily see which resided in c:\Recycler. Recuva also shows how much each file has been overwritten, and as I said, most of the supposedly "wiped" files showed as completely undamaged and fully recoverable. It wasn't just the file names that were available.
  14. It would be nice if someone did notice this thread and addressed the problem without having to repost to the bug section, but that may not happen. A good eraser program is Eraser by Tolvanen, available at http://www.heidi.ie/node/6. You can erase individual files, folders, or wipe all unused space on a drive (shredding all files deleted previously from other programs). I've seen other threads complaining of recoverable files following CCleaner's secure deletion. I hope the secure deletion feature isn't just some sort of placebo. If there's no answer here for a while I'll post to the bug section.
  15. I think the original poster was referring to cleaning with the secure deletion option enabled (hence his use of the word "wiper"). This is contrary to performing a simple "delete", as in removing pointers and leaving the data until it's overwritten later, as you describe. The secure deletion option is supposed to actually overwrite the files for you when it performs the cleaning, so that recovery is made impossible (or nearly so). I actually came here to report the same problem: I performed a cleaning with the secure deletion option enabled, on "Simple Overwrite" and Recycle Bin included in the cleaning locations. I then scanned the drive with Recuva. Nearly all the data that had been in the recycle bin was available for recovery, and most of the files showed no damage at all. I'm not sure if this is a bug or what, but it seems to me like cause for concern. I understand that there are more robust programs for erasing all remnants of files, but this is still supposed to be a secure deletion. Leaving entire files intact is not exactly security. I should note that explicitly wiping the deleted files from within Recuva did the trick. The filenames were still there, but the file data was unrecoverable.
