  1. EDIT: This was reported in the bugs section ( http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=27089 ) I don't know if this is a confirmed bug in v2.29.1111 or a design change. Because I guess in previous versions, subfolders *were* removed. ---------- In v2.29.1111 in the "Include" section, I've added the following: [x] Drive or Folder C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\ [ ] File [x] All Files [ ] File Types [x] Recurse Subfolders So the rule is the following: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\*.* ---- Let's say I create a folder under "C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\" called "TEST": C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\TEST Then, inside this folder, "TEST", I create a file "New Text Document.txt" Now, when I run CCleaner. It will use my custom "Include" rule, and it will destroy "New Text Document.txt" but the folder, "TEST" will still remain. ---- I was wondering if you could give the option to remove the subfolders so... C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\*.* would delete not only all the files (which is an option already given), but it would also delete: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\UNUSEDFOLDER_1 C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\UNUSEDFOLDER_2 C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\UNUSEDFOLDER_3\UNUSEDFOLDER_A etc... Maybe even include an option to remove the parent folder too. In my provided example, I still want to keep the "\Temp\" folder but sometimes there are instances where programs, when run, create folders that I no longer want around. For example, lets say "SOMESOFTWARE_V1.exe" creates a folder and residual files: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\FOOBAR1 C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\FOOBAR1\readme.txt C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\FOOBAR1\settings\settings.ini C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\FOOBAR1\image_temp\image1.gif so, I create a rule: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\FOOBAR1\*.* But I also want to remove the folder "FOOBAR1" after it's done cleaning all the contents of the subfolders. ---- I hope my examples were somewhat clear and that you at least consider these options for future builds.
