Clean the temp files under user folder

Recommended Posts

Dear sir,

 

CCleaner is great, but I find that it can not clean the temp file under:

 

$:\Documents and Settings\USER_ACCOUNT\Local Settings\Temp , and the temp sub directories in it,

 

would you please add this the feature to analyze and clean them?

 

I also have a suggestion to add the feature that, to add an option to delete the system-locked temp files/folders on next boot time as schedule, it would be good.

 

Thank you for this great program.

 

My CCleaner version is 2.29.1111.

That'd be useful, but...what if CCleaner deletes a file a program wanted to use ? "Hey, where's my file ? I just wrote it seconds ago, and it was erased when I wasn't looking !" :-)

Sometimes there is a complaint that CCleaner has killed/crippled a product because that product has created a folder/file for itself that was by definition a temporary location.

This does not happen often because very few competent product designers fail to protect it with a system-lock.

 

I suspect a tremendous surge in complaints were CCleaner to overcome such protection.

Ok, is "USER_ACCOUNT" a specific folder name called exactly that (if so I misunderstood and don't have that folder), or just what was used in the OP to replace the users own name? (if so it does get cleaned here)

If you're referring to our preference for a certain older version, I gave up on my vain hope the results screen would be 'fixed' and am now using the current version :rolleyes:

CCleaner doesn't clean %Temp%. At least not on my system. :huh:

well, I mean, the "USER_ACCOUNT" directory is an user account's folder. and sure, ccleaner should do the clean job only when THIS user (the owner) operate the system or the administrator (system root) uses Ccleaner.

OP is wrong

 

Running Temporary Files on CCleaner 2.29.1111 on a xp sp3completely emptied my %userprofile%\local settings\temp

 

my guess is

 

1) option to clean only older than 24 hours is selected (options>advanced)

 

or

 

2) some sort of user error or not running as an admin priviliage account is stopping the proper cleaning

Oops. I had completely forgotten the "Only clean files older than 24 hours" thing. Maybe the "Windows" part should be removed, since it is also effective on the user's temp folder...

You also could have just added those directories to the "include" list in CCleaner, and cleaned them that way.
