CCleaner & custom folders


Recommended Posts

I am using the latest version of CCleaner and Windows XP SP2 all updates. I have entered a custom folder to be cleaned, but when I run cleaner if there are files in the folder they do not get deleted. Here is the location of the folder:

 

C:\Documents and Settings\myname\Local Settings\PowerArchiver Temp Files

 

Can you see any reason, for example the spaces in the name, why cleaner won't clean this out when added to the custom folders?

 

Thanks in advance,

Normandie

are you sure thats the right folder?

try going to start then run.

type that in using your name in place of "myname".

press enter and it should open up that folder.

let me know if it does.

neighberaaron,

 

Tried what you said, worked fine to open the directory. I know it is the right directory, since I set it up that way so I could make AVG scan from inside ZIP files.

 

Thanks,

under advanced, make sure custom files and folders is ticked off.

 

 

Boy, do I feel dumb :blink::blink: . That was the problem. After all this time using CCleaner never saw that check mark. I have NEVER used anything in the advance checkmarks so didn't look there. Sorry about that.

 

Thanks for the help,

The more I think about the fact that I can leave my "custom folders" in the list and if I decide sometime I don't was to clean them all I have to do is uncheck the box, then when I want to clean them recheck the box. That is really nice. Makes it really simple. A very good idea!!!!

I did that too when I first started using the custom folders cleaning, and I knew about the tick box! :blink:
