  1. I would also like to add to my previous comment the link you provided makes no mention where ccleaner.ini is located and its seems to be outdated.
  2. Hi thanks for that. But I don't know exactly what path the cookies et al are located in so I can select the custom path (eg folder) for Chrome or Firefox to clean. You mentioned above the cookies and other settings are located in the GoogleChromePortable64\Data\profile\Default folder. History et al are also located there too? And with FF? In FF, the folder is D:\Firefox Portable\FirefoxPortable64. But there are other folders to choose from like: D:\Firefox Portable\FirefoxPortable64\Apps D:\Firefox Portable\FirefoxPortable64\Data D:\Firefox Portable\FirefoxPortable64\Other
  3. I recall last year sometime I used the Wipe Free Space feature on an old laptop with an HDD drive. While this feature did increase my overall storage capacity, I found it resulted in the HDD running considerably slower even after I tried various options like Optimize, Defrag and more. I even reinstalled Windows from my factory partition. I don't know if what I experienced is in any way related to the current issue, although I see in the notes mentioning the reason for temporarily disabling is that this feature is deleting more than it should.
  4. I had this happen. As already mentioned, the culprit is typically Chrome or another Chromium browser. I had set certain sites to never accept cookies or delete cookies after closing the browser and that remedied Google cookies. However, if I use a portable browser like Firefox or Chrome, CCleaner doesn't clean anything from them. I also experienced something similar with the desktop full version of Firefox, but in the reverse. CCleaner deleted the cookies from FF, but FF would not delete some cookies using the delete option despite no cookies saved in FF's "whitelist".
  5. This is interesting. I've been reading more on SSDs and fragmentation. The overwhelming consensus is this should NEVER be done and to avoid software applications such as Defraggler. And never force a defragment on an SSD drive. Use only TRIM.
  6. Delete all your history (activity) in Windows 10. Currently, you have to go to Settings>Privacy>Activity history>Clear activity history
  7. Does that still happen now where the OS mistakenly detects an HDD as an SSD? I experienced this myself with my 2011 system. The fault was with the Marvel SATA controllers and the SATA cables connected to the Marvel controllers instead of Intel. Back in that era Marvel SATA controllers were very problematic. I am surprised to think that would be an issue today. Thanks for clearing things up on the Optimize/TRIM feature. I used Optimize on an HDD and I thought it worked the same way on an SSD bypassing the TRIM feature. From the sounds of it though, Defraggler is no longer a utility needed
  8. That happened to me. I reinstalled Windows using Marvel ATA controllers, Marvel SATA controllers are problematic so I uninstalled the drivers, moved my HDD connectors to Intel SATA ports and all was good.
  9. This goes without saying. I also suggest removing optimizing drive and replacing it with Trim/Optimize for SSD drives. No stand-alone option for Optimize.
  10. Still no delete file from mft. And no, we don't want to wipe the entire mft. Do you know how long that can take? The original comment by your staff made mention this was going to be available in a future release. If that's wrong, then a formal retraction in this thread is warranted. That's the right thing to do, don't you think?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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".
  14. 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.
  15. 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
