Apparently the duplicate file finder doesn't show you how much total space you actually stand to save, so I wrote a quick Autoit script to analyze the duplicate.txt files it can export: [url]http://pastebin.com/jggsS4vU[/url] [editline]26th March 2013[/editline] Official page: [url]http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner[/url]
Since when does 'looks better' constitute a differently colored border and some new icons?
Cool about the other features, but in terms of looks, it looks exactly the same as the existing version.

[QUOTE=CMB Unit 01;40047418]Cool about the other features, but in terms of looks, it looks exactly the same as the existing version.[/QUOTE] The icons are a bit cleaner, but yeah, most of the changes are under the hood and new features.
[QUOTE=michaeldim;40047444]Thanks lads![/QUOTE] Holy shit that thing's still alive?
Oh shit, im still on CCleaner 2
Ccleaner is amazing
[QUOTE=michaeldim;40047444]Thanks lads![/QUOTE] Wow I haven't seen anything to do with RP for like a decade
CCleaner is among the first 3 programs I always download after a format.
I lol'd at the real player addition. I haven't seen real player in... 12 years?
I shall try this, always look to improve my laptop
Really useful program.
Thanks for reminding me to run this! Just purged 21GB of junk off my SSD.
Shame that CCleaner isn't on ninite anymore.
Holy fuck that file finder could be useful. Got music duplicates all up in this humpy bumpy.
How long ago was it stop being called CrapCleaner
Forgot to empty the recycling bin for a while, so that freed up about 65 Gb for me.
[QUOTE=Leg of Doom;40048024]How long ago was it stop being called CrapCleaner[/QUOTE] Few years.
Dang look at those graphics
Maybe its just me but why would anybody dump their caches? What is the point, it isn't really saving you anything.
[QUOTE=laserguided;40048256]Maybe its just me but why would anybody dump their caches? What is the point, it isn't really saving you anything.[/QUOTE] Well it actually is, a lot of temporary files such as installers for the latest drivers of your graphics card, Internet browsing, Steam installer files, etc. take up space and it adds up. I'm clearing 10GB a week. Maybe more Internet is used than yours but stuff adds up and cleaning it up is good. Also, many websites or webpages you might not ever go back to. Maybe that one link to a webpage for a news article you visited, the files such as images and ads are downloaded onto your computer. Sure if you go on a website such as FacePunch often, clearing the cache often could lead to more Internet bandwidth usage. By visiting that one website and webpage and multiply that by the many other webpages you'll probably never visit again, it adds up. That storage will eventually lead to fragmentation and your computer, your browser, etc. will get slower because it has to go through a bunch of cached stuff. Also it's feels good to do some cleaning and it's automated.
[QUOTE=garychencool;40048681]I'm clearing 10GB a week.[/QUOTE] how on earth
And you still have to pay for automatic updating
[QUOTE=DainBramageStudios;40048737]how on earth[/QUOTE] I'm not the only one using the computer!
[QUOTE=laserguided;40048256]Maybe its just me but why would anybody dump their caches? What is the point, it isn't really saving you anything.[/QUOTE] Not to hide the tracks of what websites I visited. I swear. What? No uh that 35 passes secure deletion was just an accident I've got nothing to hide. Also because it bothers me and I have to clean it once a week at least (both cache and registry).
[QUOTE=DainBramageStudios;40048737]how on earth[/QUOTE] I once cleared 2 GB in a single cleaning.
This reminds me, there was this program that had its own article in the News Node some weeks back about freeing you a lot of junk space on your hard drive. Can someone post it for me? I've forgotten the name of it.
I always am surprised how many registry errors it finds. Does fixing them actually do something?
Most of it is probably from left over installations/uninstallions.
