  1. Hi, I have checked Stop VSS Custom settings Exclude restore points Exclude hibernation file Nevertheless VSS service is still active and System Volume Information grows extremely All restore points are vanished after defragging free space Additionally several hundred MBs of fragmented files (not in use) need to be defragged manually after Defraggler has finished. I use Defraggler 2.21.993 (64bit) on Windows 7 Professional 64 bit SP1
  2. Thank you for testing. But that was the folder I recommended NOT to delete. Instead, I recommend THIS folder %commonappdata%\Apple\Installer Cache Actually it is only necessary to delete the many subfolders "AppleApplicationSupport*" So the entry should be [Apple Installer Cache**] LangSecRef=3023 DetectFile=%commonappdata%\Apple\Installer Cache Default=False FileKey1=%commonappdata%\Apple\Installer Cache\AppleApplicationSupport*|*.msi|REMOVESELF But I did not think of the repair function. To keep the repair function it would be necessary to keep the latest folder and msi-file But since one does not know the latest folder name one cannot create an exception. It would be nice to have such a function in CCleaner, something like |KEEPLATEST or so, also for other installation files that fill up the hard disk and have not been removed by updates, latest log-files and so on.
  3. Does only this entry FileKey1=%commonappdata%\Apple\Installer Cache|*.*|RECURSE make Apple redownload iTunes installers, too? I don't have iTunes but QuickTime and deleting this folder works fine. Because, as I posted already, this folder is for the Apple Updater itself and the Apple Application Support, I recommend only this entry for winapp2.ini. This FileKey2=%CommonAppData%\Apple Computer\Installer Cache|*.*|RECURSE folder contains the last QuickTime installer, and only the last one, so I guess Apple deletes the old ones when downloading a new one. Therefore this folder doesn't need to be cleaned actually.
  4. The variable %ProgramData% doesn' work on my computer (Windows XP SP3) unless I define this manually as a system variable. I guess that this is not what you want users need to do to make this winapp.ini (embedded) entry work [Avast! Antivirus 5] ID=2161 LangSecRef=3024 Detect=HKCU\Software\ALWIL Software\Avast\5.0 Default=True FileKey1=%ProgramData%\Alwil Software\Avast5\report|avast.xsl;avast.xsl;Resident protection.txt;Simple user interface.txt;Simple user interface*.xml FileKey2=%ProgramData%\Alwil Software\Avast5\log|*.* See this thread http://forum.pirifor...showtopic=34454 Additionally, this path FileKey1=%ProgramData%\Avast Software\Avast\log|*.* in the [Avast! Antivirus 6] entry doesn't exist on my computer, although the respective Detect key is being detected
  5. Apple Installer Cache [Apple Installer Cache*] LangSecRef=3023 DetectFile=%commonappdata%\Apple\Installer Cache Default=False FileKey1=%commonappdata%\Apple\Installer Cache|*.*|RECURSE This folder is not for iTunes or QuickTime, it is for the Apple Updater itself and the Apple Application Support. It looks like Apple does not delete old versions when installing a new one. This folder has become extremely large by old installer versions on my computer.
  6. It looks like CCleaner is not able to correctly work with this variable on Windows XP. There is e.g. this line vor avast 5 in the embedded winapp.ini FileKey2=%ProgramData%\Alwil Software\Avast5\log|*.* If %ProgramData% ist really equal %ALLUSERSPROFILE% then this path doesn't exist on my machine. The path on my machine is %COMMONAPPDATA%\Alwil Software\Avast5\log|*.* (%ALLUSERSPROFILE% is not the same path as %COMMONAPPDATA%, if I am correct. %COMMONAPPDATA% is the folder for application data in the %ALLUSERSPROFILE% directory) After running CCleaner all files in this folder still exist. Several of these files are blocked by avast and cannot be deleted with the running virus shield anyway. Another line for avast 6 is FileKey1=%ProgramData%\Avast Software\Avast\log|*.* That doesn't exist here either. There's only a path %COMMONAPPDATA%\avast Looks like the avast entries don't work at least on my XP machine. (Thank God) the %ProgramData% variable is only used in the avast entries of the embedded winapp.ini.
  7. In the Avast! entries of the embedded winapp.ini I found the system variable %ProgramData%. It is not explained here http://www.piriform.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/environment-variables-and-system-variables-in-ccleaner What does it stand for (in Windows XP)?
  8. Hi, that's a great idea. But in v305 there is no winapp.ini, only winsys.ini and winreg.ini! Please fix, thank you very much. Regards
  9. Hi, in the advanced settings there is an option to delete files in the Windows temp folder only when they are older than 24 hours. This option is missing for the local data temp folder. Result: The FreeCommander freeware explorer, which writes it's temp data in this folder, needs to be restarted after cleaning with CCleaner. Please add this option to the advanced settings. Thank you. My system: Windows XP SP3
  10. Hi, I'd appreciate very much to have the archive with the embedded ini-files in the setup package. It is very uncomfortable to come to this forum after every single update to download the files manually. The files could be extracted to a subdirectory of the CCleaner directory. Thank you for consideration.
  11. On http://docs.piriform.com/ccleaner/advanced...rs-ini-files-do you say about the winapp1.ini, that any applications you list in it will replace the default applications on the Applications tab of the Cleaner area. The truth is, that the winapp1.ini will replace the embedded winapp.ini completely. I'd apreciate very much, if the winapp1.ini would really only replace the applications listed in it and leave all other applications in the embedded winapp.ini.
  12. Hi, will there ever be a solution for the often mentioned problem with the non-existing variables like %commonappdata% %allusersprofile% %localappdata% It makes the application cleaner quite useless. What a pity.
