"Wipe free space" canceled - question


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,
First of all - sorry for my english. I hope that what I wrote is quite understandable ;)
I have a question about "Wipe free space" option - how it is if I had canceled this process before it had finished - for example I canceled this at 80% - it's mean that I was wiped this free space in 80% or 0% (becouse the process was not finished)?
If it's important - it's about some old version of CC Cleaner.
Thanks for answer
Regards
Reiv

What has already been wiped will remain wiped - it won't become unwiped because you cancelled the process. Whether the 80% is accurate or not is anyone's guess.

perhaps think of it like a defrag process.

what has been done up to when you cancelled won't change.

and what hasn't yet been touched hasn't changed.

Backup now & backup often.
It's your digital life - protect it with a backup.
Three things are certain; Birth, Death and loss of data. You control the last.

Thanks, I understand now. One more question - can I using this option (wipe free space) while I using computer (browsing the internet, listen to music etc.)? Or i shouldn't do anything on this computer until the end of this process?

You can use the pc, but it's probably better to let it do its job with free use of the drive

 

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.
