Secure overwriting in CCleaner?

Recommended Posts

Do you guys plan on implementing secure overwriting of files in CCleaner (something like 1-pass, 7-pass, etc. in Windows version of CCleaner)?

 

In any case, thank you so much for the software, its become the integral part of my "first aid" usb stick :)

Hi Matija.

 

CCleaner already has a secure delete option, unless you mean something like the overwrite options in Piriform's "Recuva".

Hi Dennis,

 

I cannot find this option in CCleaner Mac? Do I need to do something to enable options tab because I can only see Cleaner and Tools. Version 1.00.077 beta 5 Mac

 

No, I wasnt talking about Recuva.

In Windows version, the options choices look like this ...

... but I've just hunted down some Mac screenshots, and not being a Mac owner I didn't realise that it's a different animal altogether ...

Looks like this is one for the devs to answer I'm afraid, as I've no idea what their future plans are for the Mac version.

 

They do read all posts, so here's hoping they respond to this one.

 

Sorry I can't be of more help.

No problem, Im using CCleaner on Windows since first beta and got used to the secure overwriting :) hope they put it in Mac version as well.

Developers probably prefer to spend their time expediting improvements,

rather than wasting time making rash promises of expectations that may hit unexpected difficulties

Wow, you really lack the social skills Alan_B. And what's the point of these forums if not to hear the voice of their customers for feedback and improvement suggestions, which my post is - to improve the Mac version of CCleaner. It's not like I asked them to give me their first born or spill out blood... In any case, I appreciate their time, thats why I donated to keep up the good work on software which I use on daily basis for many years now.

The devs do purport to read all threads, but they don't always respond to all.

 

I would suggest just hang fire until the next release and see what changes are in evidence, and if you want to bump your suggestion again, feel free to do so. Nothing wrong with dropping in a reminder here and there.
