Google Chrome Install and Update file accumulation

Recommended Posts

I have an older computer with a system disk of 40 GB.  It was full. I used ccCleaner but still could not get enough space.  In browsing drive files, I found that Google Chrome does not delete the old update and install files.  There were 10GB of data in the files.  I researched this and found that - yes - these files can be deleted.  My Hard Disk now has over 10 GB of free space.  almost 30% was taken up by google chrome updates.  I SUGGEST that ccCleaner add this to the cleaning application.  Would appreciate any comments.

What's in the code below was taken from the community winapp2.ini additions. I wonder if this is what you're needing and wanting CCleaner to do -- but I haven't a clue since I don't use Google Chrome.

 



[Installer*]
LangSecRef=3029
SpecialDetect=DET_CHROME
Default=False
Warning=Running this may remove Chrome's ability to automatically update to future versions on some computers.
FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\Application\*\Installer|*.7z|RECURSE
FileKey2=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Chrome*\Application\*\Installer|*.7z|RECURSE
FileKey3=%LocalAppData%\Google\Update\*\*\Installer|*.7z|RECURSE
FileKey4=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Update\*\*\Installer|*.7z|RECURSE
FileKey5=%ProgramFiles%\|GUT*tmp
