  1. I thought of the group policy object method on my own the other day, but I'm having a problem with it. I have it run a batch file at shutdown, which is: echo Script ran at last shutdown. > c:\users\karl\desktop\shutdownlog.txtC:\PROGRA~2\CCleaner\ccleaner.exe /auto Note that these commands are correct individually. The first line is so I know the batch file was actually run. It drops a text file on my desktop, which I delete afterward. If the file is there, the script ran at shutdown. The second line is PROGRA~2 because I'm running 64-bit Windows 7 RC and the actual folder is "C:\Program Files (x86)\CCleaner". It's definitely correct because I can paste the line into a command prompt and it runs CCleaner. Each line does exactly what it should do. And I know that the script is running at shutdown because it's dropping the text file on my desktop every time. But it's not cleaning. After restarting a few times, I ran CCleaner and analyzed, only to find I still had a gig of trash on my drive. I'm at a loss as to why.
  2. Defraggler has an option to move files of certain file extensions to the end of the drive. I would also suggest a feature to move certain specific files (not by extension, but by specific file or folder) toward the beginning of the drive. The leading edge (beginning) of the average hard drive has more than twice the read speed of the inner track (end of drive) because the platters are moving under the head at a much higher speed, and it would be beneficial to be able to store specific resources here, such as pagefile.sys, hibrfile.sys, or a specific folder's contents such as a game or Windows itself. This would optimize the access speed of those frequently-used resources.
