  1. Thanks for your help. If I follow this, the bottom line is to not use CCleaner to clean an SSD drive, whether the deletion is "secure" or "normal." Correct? If so, some questions occur to me. First, why does the CCleaner popup warn only against SECURE deletion of an SSD drive? Why doesn't it just advise not to clean the SSD drive at all? Second, if my computer had ONLY an SSD drive, why would I use CCleaner at all, except to use some of its subsidiary functions, like Recuva? Finally, I've been doing normal file deletion of my SSD drive for a while now with CCleaner because I thought that's what I was supposed to do. Apparently, I should not have been. Will this lead to any problems or is there anything I should do now to "fix" this? Again, thanks for the help.
  2. Hello. I installed a new SSD drive. When I went to use CCleaner, I got a popup that said, as best I recall, that secure file deletion could damage the SSD drive, so I have been doing only normal file deletion. However, now, if I go to use secure file deletion, I get no warning about my SSD drive. I know there is debate about using defrag on an SSD drive, but is there any reason not to use CCleaner secure file deletion on an SSD drive? Thanks.
