  1. If you're low on available disk space try Disk Cleanup which is built into Windows first to see if it can free a bit of disk space. If you're on Windows 10 and wish to remove more type into Cortana/Search: Delete temporary files It allows you to uninstall unused software, etc., however the real solution is to buy a larger capacity disk (HDD or SSD) because cleaning will only get you so far.
  2. That version is very old. Try updating to at least CCleaner v5.63.7540 (wouldn't try v5.64 it has issues). Old versions were known to cause issues with things like FontCache, etc., which they've fixed in newer versions.
  3. To reiterate you aren't fixing anything cleaning the Windows registry.
  4. The registry cleaner isn't really going to fix anything on Windows 10. You should not be cleaning the registry on Windows 10 either since it can cause issues. Here's Microsoft's official statement about registry cleaners: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2563254/microsoft-support-policy-for-the-use-of-registry-cleaning-utilities
  5. Confirmed! It created this on my system: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Piriform\CCleaner] "(Cfg)LastUpdate"="03/05/2020 12:56:04 AM"
  6. Please don't duplicate posts, it wastes peoples time answering them more than once. I had already answered this in your other identical post which I've now locked: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/57066-anyone-seen-this-error/
  7. It doesn't show the Downloads folder path for me either. As to why it isn't getting correct path information my only guess is they need to update Speccy to reflect all the changes in Windows 10.
  8. It's to disable pre-loading of the original Edge (not Edge Chromium), see here for a more thorough explaination: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/56335-solution-ccleaner-cannot-fully-clean-microsoft-edge-due-to-pre-loading/ That's the only way it can effectively clean Edge!
  9. They need to update it! If you're on Windows 10 that could possibly also be part of the cause and whatever they'd change to the Defrag API that all defrag tools use in the background. I've personally noticed with some older SATA/300 ("SATA 2") external/portable hard disks that no matter what defrag tool rather it be Windows own built-in or whatever 3rd party it just crawls and takes agonizingly forever, enough to abort the defrag. When I plug those same drives into an old WinXP system it defrags them at an acceptable normal pace.
  10. I would look into if it's actually safe to defragment a Raid 0 to begin with - especially with a 3rd party defrag tool. I know it doesn't help you here but, better safe that sorry. Here's a search if you're even interested: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=defragmenting+raid0
  11. I don't know about the other stuff with how they detect a hard disk drive (HDD) vs solid state drive (SSD), and like I've stated in some older posts even Windows 10 can get the detection completely wrong especially with external/portable SSD (although I think that's because of how an external/portable SSD was formatted, and the filesystem it uses). All of their software has that issue. Install one version and it detects them wrong, install the next version and it detects them correct. Luck of the draw I suppose with it being hit and miss and there's been allot of posts about it over the years.
  12. Kind of bad you had to let it "phone home" to Avast in order for it to work. If that's the case for some people (I didn't have that issues using the Portable ZIP version) maybe they should update the system requirements to state an active working Internet connection is required -- that is if it isn't just another of the bugs both software-side and network-side they have to fix.
  13. See here for a solution: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/
  14. It happens often enough so I've downgraded to CCleaner v5.63.7540. Glad I archive old versions of software for some time!
  15. Reproduced for the fourth time now. More Info: When it happens the GUI quickly flashes text. Screenshot Proof:
  16. See here how to configure it: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/57017-new-cckeaner-interface/?do=findComment&comment=315852
  17. You can use the "old-school" way by doing this: 1. Open CCleaner. 2. Click Options. 3. Click Settings. 4. Enable/Tick: Custom Clean Now when you open CCleaner it will default to Custom Clean instead.
  18. CCleaner v5.64.7613 has a cleaning duplication doubling bug I've been able to reproduce on three separate occasions: Using Custom Clean, and then clicking Analyze it will sometimes duplicate and double what it states it can clean. It will show two identical results for things like built-in default cleaners such as; Internet Explorer, Temporary Files, etc., and also this doubles the amount of disk space it shows will be reclaimed. Closing CCleaner, and starting it again remedies the issue, until it happens again.
  19. Well if it's a USB drive sometimes Windows regardless of how ancient or brand new it is will require a reboot when USB isn't working correct, i.e.; like the drive not mounting ("showing up") - although sometimes Windows just needs to be given time to detect and mount the drive, I've lost count how many times I've seen that with a USB drive.
  20. Oh so sad my local account isn't going to be compatible, good riddance!
  21. Not sure exactly which Windows OSes that Disk Management may make you reboot in to do this but it can be very annoying in some older versions of Windows. Nirsoft's freeware DriveLetterView can also change drive letter's and I've never seen it require a reboot.
  22. That isn't unique to CCleaner's registry cleaner, allot of them have that happen when you allow them to remove one reference it invalidates another that may have been pointing to it, etc. Been that way as long as I can remember. However has Nukecad stated registry cleaning Win10 isn't something that should be done.
  23. Even easier - in Windows 10 to quickly open Disk Management: Right-click the Windows icon/logo in the Taskbar, and select Disk Management. -------------- Something else: If that drive is in an external/portable USB HDD or SSD (not one pre-made by a drive manufacturer) that you DIY made yourself with a loose drive and placed into an external/portable enclosure try switching to a different enclosure. Sometimes those inexpensive USB HDD/SSD enclosures can have a controller failure. Also sometimes switching a drive from one enclosure to another without re-formatting the drive can cau
  24. Usually 3rd party partitioning software that has more features than what's built into Windows own partition tool have the ability to hide/unhide partitions. In those 3rd party partition tools however you have to remember to click the Apply button though in order for them to follow your requests otherwise they won't do anything.
