  1. You can use PageDefrag to defragment your pagefile.
  2. I run chkdsk /f every few months or so, I don't think there's anything wrong with this. Most of the time it will detect several problems that need to be corrected. Ounce of prevention, pound of cure . . .
  3. If I want to be sure that all files are defragmented, I boot into the windows recovery console and run a command line defrag. I think Defraggler does a great job on my XP SP3 machines even when windows is running in normal mode. I disable hibernation and system restore on all my XP machines, which may account for a smoother experience.
  4. I believe CCleaner removes the contents of the recycle bin but not the hidden files within the drive:\RECYCLER folders. I manually delete my RECYCLER folders once a week. And yes, these files can be very large. What you could do is go into CCleaner options, click the Includes button and enter the path to the RECYCLER folder(s) that you want to have it empty during a clean.
  5. Yes, thank you for this great product! One question about the df.exe command line file: I'm assuming one could run this while booted into Safe Mode command prompt or the recovery console?
  6. Based on what you posted, its having trouble defragging files in the directory that contains your System Restore files. Why, I'm not sure. One option would be to disable system restore for all drives on your machine, then delete any existing system restore points using the disk cleanup wizard, and run defraggler again. If you're not comfortable with this, you could try running a checkdsk on the drive and run another defrag. I know that System Restore can consume a lot of disk spare.
  7. I will do that during my next defrag on that machine. I'm fine running Defraggler without that option, but wanted to let you know as you'd mentioned that it would be fixed in the next release.
  8. FYI, I received the error under 1.09 this afternoon. When I unchecked the "Move large files to end of drive" box, the defrag completed successfully.
  9. Under My Computer, right click on the C volume, click the tools tab. In the error checking tab, click the "check now" button. Then, check the "Automatically fix file system errors check box. It will prompt you to schedule the error checking upon the next reboot as the drive is locked. During the next reboot, you'll see the error check running during boot. If you still get the error during the defrag, select the second box "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" box under the error checking options box, reboot again to let it check, then try again. The reason I wouldn't check the attempt recovery of bad sectors during the first run is that it takes longer, but you could check it the first time to do a comprehensive check.
  10. I followed Davey's instructions in the 2nd post and it deleted both files. I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3. Thank you, I had no idea those 2 files even existed
  11. To date, I've not had any issues with either the system or registry cleaning components of CClenaer.
  12. Log into your other profile(s) and run CCleaner. That's the only way I've found to accomplish this.
  13. I'm glad to see the whole drive and space option, very welcomed features.
  14. I just read somewhere that this needs to be addressed by the manuafacturer of installer that CCLeaner uses to package their product. A false positive, will most likely be corrected during the next release.
