  1. I must add that this "Exclude" option works throughout the entire program. E.g. it also works on the "file list" tab.
  2. @Pinfloid: This is indeed a problem/bug in Defraggler. And you are not the only one who has reported this/these bug(s). But CCleaner has (much) users than Defraggler and therefore Defraggler will have to wait until the developers decide they want to spend time fixing (a number of) bugs in the program. Alas. And given the amount of possibilities in the options menu it will give the developers a headache. If you want to move those files back to the beginning of the drive then you can do the following. Select Settings > Options > Exclude. There you must enter all folders that don'
  3. Did some more research and found out that the behaviour - as described in the previous post - doesn't happen in the "File list" tab. It only happens in the "Search" tab (red arrow). In the picture attached I give another example. I defragged one file but when I clicked on "Fragments" (blue arrow) twice the program didn't "remove" that one file (size; 93 MB, green arrow) from the list. So, the program code that sorts the files on fragments doesn't work for the "Search" tab.
  4. - Turn off System Restore. That will help to speed up the program - Let the program move LARGE files and files you rarely use to the end of the drive.
  5. @Kenmk: Post a screenshot of the Defraggler filemap. Could be very revealing.
  6. - No, the Snipping Tool in Windows 7 doesn't have such a "delay" function. - Interesting. Perhaps an additional reason to make the move to Windows 10.
  7. LIghtShot - This is a program to make a screenshot. The build-in tools (plural) in Windows all each have their limitations and drawbacks. E.g. if the user wants to make screenshot of an opened roll-down menu then e.g. the Snipping Tool (Windows 7) isn't able to do that. The Snipping Tool will close that menu. - But LighShot operates in a different way. It re-programs (very appropriately) the "Print screen" button/key on one's keyboard. That way e.g. an opened roll-down menu won't disappear and can be captured in the screenshot. - The program is not as powerful as other sc
  8. - Did some more testing and it turns out that CC does remove the thumbnail caches and that without restarting Explorer.exe. - And those caches are rebuild and grow with each folder the user opens. Then more and more icons & thumbnails are added to those caches. - I also noticed that Windows does not write those caches to disk the moment changes are made or the caches grow in size. It seems that Windows waits with writing to disk until the user shuts down his system.
  9. - Agree. But if Ccleaner doesn't want to kill & restart "Explorer.exe" (needed for removing those thumbnail caches) then this option ("Clean thumbnail caches") should be removed as well.
  10. - The program could display a warning like "Ccleaner will restart the process Explorer.exe" (or something along those lines)
  11. - But then why does Ccleaner contain that one cleaning option ("Clear thumbnail caches") in the first place ?
  12. - Yes, but Ccleaner should be able to re-start "Explorer.exe" again like Tweaking's Windows Repair does. Then the situation is back to normal. So, it can be done ........... - Or perhaps there is another way to get this done. Perhaps some small program or script can be executed when a user starts or shuts down his machine and which will delete those thumbnail caches. - "Corrupted Recycle Bin": that's also very easy. The trick is that one also first needs to reset the permissions of the Recycle Bins (plural) and then simply delete the appropriate folder (e.g. "C:\$Recyclebin") and Win
  13. - Every now and then one or more thumbnail caches are corrupted. One way this shows up is that one or more program icons have disappeared. Then a generic symbol shows up instead. But it seems CCleaner is unable to remove those caches. After running Ccleaner the proper program icon(s) didn't re-emerge. - Then I grab another program (Tweaking's Windows Repair) that's able to delete those caches (No, this program is NOT a competitor of Ccleaner !!!) and then Windows will be forced to re-build those caches. - To be able to delete those caches one must kill the process "Explorer.exe", del
  14. - Try to find out where those rules are stored. (Firefox helpforum ???) Perhaps you can copy them to another folder (as a backup ??) and copy them back to that one special folder (???) after running CCleaner. - Go to the website FileHippo ( https://filehippo.com/ ) There you can download previous versions of CCleaner. One of those previous versions doesn't delete those rules. Install that version and make sure that you install each version of CCleaner in a different folder. Then compare the file "winapp2.ini" of that one version with the file "winapp2.ini" of the latest version. Are ther
  15. - Sometimes DF isn't able to properly sort the filenames on the amount fragments. I clicked on the "fragments" header multiple times but and a file with 8 fragments "got stuck" at the same place in the file list. - See the picture attached.
  16. - There is new OEC PRO version available with fixes for the bugs in the july 6, 2020 version.
  17. - From the OEC Facebook page(s), I pulled the following texts: source: https://www.facebook.com/oeclassic - Comment #1: "Gmail should be Griefmail, it periodically stops OE Classic from collecting my mail so goodbye to the problem. GMX.com and Outlook.com are superior to Gmail and have never caused a fault with OE Classic collecting mail." - OEC replied as follows: "It is true that Gmail quality of service has dropped in the recent years. But still beats Yahoo mail (also used by ATT and Frontier as well as some others) which is one of the least reliable servers
  18. - Users of the july 2020 version of OEC PRO should remove this version and go back to the june 10, 2020 version. There is a MAJOR annoying bug that shows up when the user is writing an email. The same bug shows up in a slightly different way in each language. - I assume the developers are aware of this bug because the last available version for download is that june 10, 2020 version. The july 2020 version has been removed. - Re-installing the previous version is very simple. Remove all files from "C:\Program files (x86)\OEClassic", download & install the latest available PRO vers
  19. - Try this: (Temporarily) Disable System Restore. That will speed up the defrag process.
  20. - Another way to speed up Defraggler: (Temporarily) disable System Restore.
  21. - Ran both Defraggler and RAMMAP again today and saw 102 (!!!) instances of "Defraggler.exe". I.e. 102 DF zombie processes.
  22. @kubakakauko - Start defragmenting these folders first: C:\Windows C:\Program files C:\Program files(x86) - If starting programs is super slow then I would also check the health of the drive. What do you see when you open the "Health" tab in Defraggler ?
  23. - Switch off "System Restore". This will reduce the time needed for a full defrag of your HD.
  24. @CTYankee: - To be able to defrag a file (with Defraggler) that has a size of X you need a contiguous free space of - at least - the same size X. And that's not the case on your system with the E: drive. No wonder Defraggler won't (completely) defrag the pagefile. The best it can do is to decrease the fragmentation. - A defragmented pagefile will indeed increase the performance of your system - Try this: - Turn off the pagefile and (temporarily) move all other files to another drive. - Format the E: drive (again). - Turn on the pagefile, choos
  25. - I still use Internet Explorer 11 on my Windows 7 system every now and then. Using IE 11 still has a number of advantages over e.g. Edge & Chrome. - Although I was looking for something else in the "Microsoft Update catalogus", I was very surprised to see that MS still issues "Cumulative Security Updates" for IE 11 for Windows 7. Even though MS doesn't support Windows 7 anymore. The latest version was issued on june 8, 2020 (KB 4561603). - Source: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com and search with the words 'internet explore 11 update'.
