  1. EDIT - Nevermind. After all that, I find that it's a known issue with 5.44.6575. Wasted my time again. ==================================== Windows 10 x64, all updates. CCleaner 5.44.6575. The option to keep files less than 24 hours old is disabled. Using right-click menu on Recycle Bin, if I choose "Run CCleaner", the RB is not emptied. If instead I choose "Open CCleaner", then within that click on lower-right button "Run CCleaner", the RB is emptied. ==> Does this happen for other people? Or does the right-click "Run CCleaner" work OK for you? I have tried deleting / restoring the Recycle Bin in case it was corrupted. No change in symptoms. [Speculation: This is a fairly new problem and may be due to a Windows update. When I actually open CCleaner and then tell it to clean (the second path above), it always asks if I want to close MS Edge, even when I have just rebooted. I have to tell CC to proceed anyway. Is it possible that in the more automated right-click menu "Run CCLeaner" this (bogus?) question about MS Edge is preventing CC from doing anything?]
  2. Well, that's a mess! Now I've got CC Pro on my system and no way to downgrade to the free version! Other than a complete uninstall which looks like it will lose all my carefully derived settings! BAD ADVICE, STEPHEN. And it didn't fix the problem. Even with ccleaner.exe in place, using the Recycle Bin context menu to "Run CCleaner" will not empty the bin. Opening CC and telling it to "Run" works fine. This is with MBAM Anti-Ransomware "off", Win 10 Pro x64.
  3. I see that support for TRIM was added for Samsung etc drives. However, there seems to be no information anywhere about when Defraggler will TRIM, or how to tell it to do so. I've checked the online Help and this forum. --> Anybody know how to make Defraggler TRIM an SSD? Or how to tell that it did so? Thx
  4. Can Defraggler handle big external drives such as the Seagate GoFlex 4TB ? I know that the version of a year or so past would not, but I see that since then support for 3TB was added. So maybe it also works for 4TB - but I don't want to try without some assurances. It's too much of a hassle to recover if anything gets hosed. Thx
  5. +1 I have the same problem with a Seagate GoFlex external 4TB. I'm running WinXP Pro, using Defraggler 2.08.373. I'll be updating to the newest Defraggler soon, but the change log says nothing about this being addressed so I imagine it wasn't.
  6. Defraggler very kindly warns me that the operation may take a long time due to "low" free space. However, after seeing it many times I would like to switch this warning off. Please include the ability to do so in the Options screen. Thanks Arbie
  7. I doubt this is a bug, and it isn't really a suggestion, so I'll describe it here. I have read the tech description on free space defrag but still wonder at what's happening. When I run Defraggler in "Defrag Free space " (normal mode - not allowing fragmentation) I often DO get considerable fragmentation. I can end up with 300+ files fragmented this way. If this is unavoidable then perhaps the second menu choice / type should be changed to "Allow more file fragmentation" to indicate you'll get this with any freespace defrag. Also, when the process finishes there are blue blocks ("Used space") remaining at the end of the drive, so it looks like the freespace wasn't all consolidated. But the popup on these says "No files are in the block". This is on a 1TB external USB drive with about 600GB of data on it. There is a single 1GB file; all the rest are 300MB or less. Thanks for the great programs
  8. Not a major deal, but this makes ejecting USB external drives even harder than it normally is on some PCs. (WinXP). FYI, O&O Defrag is able to do this. It lists attached external drives in its main window, but does not interfere with disconnecting them. Thanks Arbie
