Would you please consider including a Save/Restore button for CCleaner > Options > Exclude

For temporary (not permanent) protection of certain folders, it would be very useful if we could simple restore a list of those locations inside CCleaner > Options > Exclude.

 

That way if we wanted to temporarily protect 5 folders from cleanup, we could just Restore a list of their locations instead of adding them individually. The point here is that some people have temporary needs, while others set things up permanently. This option would help people with temporary needs.

Use the option "Save Settings to INI".

Launch and CC and configure WITHOUT protection and then close CC it will preserve the configuration within CCleaner.INI,

then copy CCleaner.INI to Normal.INI

Launch and CC and configure WITH protection and then close CC it will preserve the configuration within CCleaner.INI,

then copy CCleaner.INI to Protect.INI

 

Then copy either Normal.INI or Protect.INI to replace CCleaner.INI before running CCleaner.

 

Configure CC to protect your folders and when you close CC it will preserve the configuration within CCleaner.INI then rename CCleaner.INI to CCleaner.LST

Thank you. As I understand it:

 

After you

Options > Advanced > CHECK: Save all settings to INI file

 

The settings will be saved in file: C:\Program Files\CCleaner\ccleaner.ini

 

Backup ccleaner.ini to a different folder then copy/paste it back, overwriting the existing ccleaner.ini file to restore the settings the program had at the time ccleaner.ini was created.
