Can I use CCleaner on a SSD disk?

Yes you can.  You'll want to turn off any multiple delete passes though (no 35 wipes).

 

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.

There is no reason why not to use CCleaner with an SSD.

The only caveats I can think of off the top of my head are not to use secure deletion, don't tick 'wipe free space' in CustomClean, and don't use the 'Drive wiper' tool.

None of those are needed or desirable with a SSD.

Edit - And don't use the Registry Cleaner with Windows 10. (SSD or HDD).

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
