  1. I manually select to ignore file names but it doesn't find anything. In comparison, a free app called Auslogics Duplicate File Finder does find all the duplicate files after changing additional settings like ignore file names. Now, I'm not endorsing this particular app, because if you're not careful, it will install additional apps (similar to CCleaner but worse), but it certainly finds duplicate files unlike CCleaner. Perhaps the developers can dissect Auslogics DFF and incorporate their algorithm or something similar into CCleaner.
  2. I thought my comments were being filtered or censored. I make a post and sign out. I return again, say, I forgot to write something. And my post isn't there. Additionally, should I edit my comments, the original post remains should I exit. I think this should be remedied because commenters may make duplicate posts because they may not be aware there's a filter or system issue.
  3. Oh! So using Defrag Free Space' (Advanced) is the same as consolidating your hard drive like the native Windows defrag? On my version Free Space Advanced states "allow fragmentation".
  4. I think since defraggler doesn't "consolidate" files, only defrag them, moving frequently used files to the beginning of the drive is extremely important now more than ever. However, since SSD manufacturers don't recommend defragmenting their hard drives, I can see why the feature isn't available now. But, I believe it should've been made available long ago.
  5. Norton had this back in the early 2000s. This is really handy to move your frequently used files to the beginning of the drive. It's not logical (to me) to have the ability to move files to the end of the drive, but not to the beginning. Also, many other third party defragment tools including Windows actually "consolidate" files versus just fragment
  6. Adware works like AVG does too — does having a decline/accept option make it right or acceptable? I think not. Don't bundle additional software with CCleaner. Offer it as a standalone product separately if you want to win users like me back. For now, my trust is broken in Pirform/Ccleaner. I'll continue to read updated independent reviews of Ccleaner before updating or upgrading again.
  7. Sorry, I thought I quoted your post, this forum software is almost as messed up as CCleaner's developer's thinking. But yeah, the first thing bloggers and reviewers mention about CCleaner is how it wants to install Avast "spyware" by "tricking" you if you're not very careful. What CCleaner has done today (again) will be a major blow to their reputation. As a result, many will no longer be recommending this product. Just when you think CCleaner learned from their past mistakes they go ahead and repeat them. What a way to shoot themselves in the foot.
  8. You can try to spin or justify your decisions like McDonald Trump would do, that's obviously your choice given it's your software but it's going backwards and counter-intuitive not to allow users the freedom and choice to decide from themselves before it is installed. I think your logic/rationale/thinking is backwards. Let the user decide to update WHEN they want, IF they want. CCLEANER is NOT anti-virus software. We need to be clear on that. Having a background updater or process running in the background is pure nonsense on a "junk utility" application.
  9. Yup. Reminds of the crap they pulled two years ago and their excuse was they thought there were "helping" us. Here' s my thread on the topic. Let's hope they don't get it deleted, if it is below is the content DEJA VU? Wow. Reading the release notes ー not impressed, reminds me of how a couple of years ago Pirform did the unthinkable and made SYSTEM MONITORING permanent and couldn't be disabled. Now, we have the current issues where updates are applied automatically on the free version. The version info contains clickbait phrases like "This version comes jam-packed full of exciting
  10. Wow. Reading the release notes ー not impressed, reminds me of how a couple of years ago Pirform did the unthinkable and made SYSTEM MONITORING permanent and couldn't be disabled. Now, we have the current issues where updates are applied automatically on the free version. The version info contains clickbait phrases like "This version comes jam-packed full of exciting improvements for all our users!" Then it's implied you can review and update your preferences. And they go on to say OPTIONS have been simplified. Granted, the OPTIONS was always a PIA, but after that incident from two years ago
  11. Come on folks. The answer is simple, it's absolute. It's either yes or no. Is it so hard to answer?
  12. I experienced this on my laptop. I even restored the factory image and the drive no longer has the speeds it once did. I also experienced the same on my desktop on one my other drives as well. Perhaps it's a coincidence?
  13. It looks like I may have worded my question poorly. What I meant was does three pass wiping cause the drive to slow down after completion.
  14. I noticed a considerable slow down in speed using defraggler benchmarks. Is this normal with wiping free space and if so, why does this happen?
