Cleanup FolderShare temp files

Recommended Posts

Folder Share creates a LARGE storage bin of temp files at:

C:\Documents and Settings\Master Id\Local Settings\Application Data\FolderShare\trash

where Master Id is logon name.

 

I deleted over 4GB of files from this folder when I found it.

 

Consider adding this to CC

I registered here just to second this suggestion!! Foldershare leaves gigs of old files in that folder. Right now you can include it as a custom folder, but it's a hack solution. Ideally, CCleaner would include this folder and have an option for deleting all files older than a set number of days.

Looks like we are the only two who care.

Instead of "Master Id" put your logon id or do a search for FolderShare to find the folder.

 

No this is in XP

I did that and that Folder does not exist on my XP Home nor Pro systems.

Do you have a program called FolderShare installed? Or maybe Windows Live FolderShare?

I double checked and

C:\Documents and Settings\Master ID\Local Settings\Application Data\FolderShare\trash

is on my XP Pro computer.

 

It has 143 files and takes 6.13 MB in it.
