  1. Here is a detailed comparison of the SSD "trim" capabilities of CCleaner and "AS Cleaner 0.5" Test Conclusions: 1) "AS Cleaner 0.5" takes the SAME TIME to trim a drive/partition regardless of how many bytes need to be reset to "0" 2) "CCleaner" takes VARIOUS TIMES to do a "secure 1-pass file deletion" (= reset used bytes to 0, or maybe to 1?). The more files were just deleted, the more bytes need to be reset, and the longer it takes CCleaner to finish. For example, 1) I used CCleaner to "secure 1-pass delete ("trim") my 40GB "C" drive. a) Then I immediately delet
  2. Whether or not CCleaner actually trims SSD's "correctly", I will remain a 100% loyal supporter of Piriform... a great company with a great forum!
  3. Thanks to everyone for your comments on this important subject! :-) 1st) Based on 2-3000 hours of use, I ABSOLUTELY KNOW that using CCleaner recovers the initial fast speed lost by my SSD's during normal use. HOW? Well, I always measure the initial boot speed of my laptop and my desktop whenever I install a new boot drive (= SSD since 2007). So when my desktop takes longer than 21 seconds to completely boot up, then I know it is slowing down. I have used "AS Cleaner 0.5" (a popular trim program) and it recovers my desktop boot time back to 21 seconds. I have also used
  4. Yes, Andavari, BUT WHY MENTION A THREAD THAT IS 23 MONTHS OLD, DRAWS NO CLEAR CONCLUSIONS OR ADVICE, IS WRITTEN IN TECHNO-BABBLE, AND LACKS FIELD-TESTED RESULTS FROM BOTH EXPERTS AND USERS?!? :-()
  5. CCleaner is GREAT...greater than even Piriform realizes! :-D Piriform should BRAG that CCleaner also trims SSD's (= re-sets bits to zer0)!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT because ~75% of all computer users (especially businesses) in the world STILL USE Windows XP. Every month now a million more XP users buy a new SSD (solid state drive) which must be manually trimmed to maintain top speed. XP does not support auto-trim unlike Vista and Win7. Yet only 15% of users have Vista or Win7. While a few (slow) programs allow XP users to MANUALLY trim an SSD, NO program exists--EXCEPT CClea
