Its intended to clean junk/temp files. It can also erase history, cookies, typed URL's, open/save dialogs, windows run as well as many applications recent file history. Windows logs, Error reporting, recycle bin, memory dumps and more. You can do secure wipes of files (as opposed to deleting them). The only function I see in EE that CC dosent have is clearing the swap/page file.
So is this a good app for getting rid of data to prevent others from retrieving it? Or is this best for getting rid of unnecessary data on a computer hard drive? If I want to securely get rid of data, would another tool be better suited?
