CCleaner deletes files necessary to the proper functioning of winamp

Hi MrSinatra, and welcome to the forum.

 

I don't use Winamp, but these are the locations hot wired into CCleaner ...

 

 

FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Winamp|winamp.m3u
FileKey2=%ProgramFiles%\Winamp|winamp.m3u8
FileKey3=%ProgramFiles%\Winamp\Plugins\ml|recent.dat
FileKey4=%ProgramFiles%\Winamp\Plugins\ml\cache|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey5=%appdata%\Winamp|winamp.m3u
FileKey6=%appdata%\Winamp|winamp.m3u8
FileKey7=%appdata%\Winamp\Plugins\ml|recent.dat
FileKey8=%appdata%\Winamp\Plugins\ml\Cache|*.*|RECURSE

 

 

A little research tells me that the playlist files carry either the m3u or m3u8 file extension?

 

And the above cleaning routines will be cleaning recent (%appdata%) and older (%ProgramFiles%) versions of Winamp of their playlists?

 

I'll point this out to the devs, and being essential files for the running of Winamp, I would think they would rectify this.

 

 

EDIT: Please correct me if I'm wrong with any of this.   :)

No worries, and the devs are now aware of this issue. In fact there does appear to have been some change in the most recent version ...

 

Improved Java, Windows Defender, FrostWire, CuteFTP 9, Winamp, FileZilla, SUPERAntiSpyware, OpenOffice 4 cleaning

 

 

Taken from the changelog ...
