  1. Ok, you are explaining why CCleaner is CURRENTLY so slow. But that doesn't mean that CCleaner will be slow forever. Other washer/eraser tools show that the task could perform MUCH faster. Maybe CCleaner should implement: - direct MFT/Cluster/NTFS access instead of using windows file opening DLLs - use concurrent, bundled threads - other possible tricks like grouping of cluster wiping So there is much room for CCleaner improvements. Could you put this on your feature request/todo list? I prefer to use only ONE tool instead of multiple. Since CC
  2. Due to my observations I performed the following experiment (on 64bit Win7 with 16GB memory): I have a huge dir tree with approx 100000 files between 10kb and 1MB each with a total size of approx 20GB I added/included this dir tree as additional folder to wipe. When I perform a CCleaner run it takes around 7 hours (!) to clean all these files (remaining clean stuff is negligible) Before cleaning it with CCleaner I made a copy of it. As comparison benchmark I performed a wiping of this duplicate dirtree with other tools like WipeFile. Surprisingly the WipeFIle re
  3. In former times I could download a portable version of CCleaner. I do not find this download any more. Is it abolished? Thomas
  4. On my Win7 system I have two independent Firefox installations: - The first "normal" installation of v58.0.2 - The second, portable Firefox v52.60 Firefox ESR version In CCleaner I defined a couple of Cookies which should be kept. When I run now CCleaner it detects and cleans successfully the cookies of the first Firefox installation since it knows the profile path from registry. Unfortunately CCleaner does NOT recognize and clean the second Firefox installation. Is there a way to let CCleaner clean the second Firefox installation (especially the cookies which are
  5. ok, thank you. When I read the linked guide it does not become clear what I should specify as path. Assume I have Firefox ESR then I could specify: D:\FirefoxESR\Data or D:\FirefoxESR\Data\profile A subfolder D:\FirefoxESR\Data\profile\sam as mentioned as example in the guide does NOT exist. So what should I write in ccleaner.ini?
  6. As far as I can see CCLeaner looks into Registry to find browser installations on the current system and apply afterwards e.g. cookie washer. It works. BUT what if I setup PORTABLE browser installation (like Firefox ESR or Portable Chrome)? Since these browser installations do not use Registry CCleaner cannot find them. How can I tell CCleaner to apply Cookie washing rules onto these portable browser installations as well? I can imagine that there is an option to enter base pathes of those portable browser installation but cannot find them. Thomas
