Chrome Local Storage


Adendum

Recommended Posts

I run an extension in Chrome that requires a lot of complex settings and every time I run CCCleaner I am losing that se of values from the extension.

 

These are not held in a cookie they are held in Chrome's Local Storage, so I need to know what I can do in CCCleaner to exclude this.

Hi, I'm the Community Manager for AdBlock. We also keep our users' settings (options, subscribed filter lists, and custom filters) in Chrome's Local Storage. Can you please confirm, is this the correct path to exclude in Ccleaner to prevent these settings from being deleted?

C:\Users\{yourusername}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\{yourprofilename}\Local Storage

yes, it should be*, except a specific file or wildcardset of files should be called so that the rest of local storage is cleaned. The best bet is to right click the chrome section and choose analyze, then inspect the detail pane for your specific ABP files right click the file and choose add to exclude, again so the rest of local storage is still cleaned.

 

*I Don't have my winnapp1.ini file (the internal list of cleaning locations built into ccleaner) but running export (there's a sticky on doing that) should allow you access to see where ccleaner cleans for local storage. I say should because browsers often fall under the special key sections which are more obfuscated.

 

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
