Benchmark Button


Recommended Posts

Question:  Do I need to use the Benchmark option button on my screen when defragging my hard drive?  What exactly does benchmark do (please answer in words a 6th grader could understand)?

I looked up benchmark on the CCleaner wegsite, and WOW, sure is a lot of words.  I was more confused after trying to read that then I was before I searched.

Please help......  Thank you.

Ignore it. I always have.

It's a tool for for techies and repairpersons, which is why there is 'a lot of words'  on the website.

Basically it makes a snapshot (benchmark) of the state of the drive that you can then compare with later snapshots to see if anything is deteriorating over time.

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