Sometimes when a programm crash or someone power off the Computer without shoutdown, the data wont lost...



one little easy way to prevent lose data or minimize this is to deaktivate the writecache of harddisc, but its reduced harddisk-performance

but for ram... help nothing by a power off

And RAM is volatile -- all data is lost at reboot or power off.

I remember when this was NOT true. See :-
http://www.psych.usy...dp-11/core.html
I actually designed a Power supply that adjusted the voltage to compensate for the effects of temperature on the switching currents of core arrays used for controlling telephone switching networks.

Happy Analogue days :)

curious, why not move this to the 'suggestions' forum?
also, modifying the front post, OP, would be helpful, if not too hard; like summarizing all the posted ideas with a green check or red x in front of each on the list, the date it was adopted or rejected, and by whom

When will the "when idle" schedule option be fixed? I just noticed that my drive is 13% fragmented because Degraggler no longer defrags when my system is idle.

The current schedule option that "starts defrag only if the computer is idle for" option doesn't help. The defrag still only starts once a day or once a week, and it only does that IF the system is idle at that scheduled time. That is not the same as "defrag anytime my system is idle."

Now I have to google for an older version of deffragler, and stop letting it install updates.

Hi, i have some ideas for new features for Defraggler.
1) real time optimalization - Defraggler will run at sys tray ( or background) and find optimal place for writing files.
2) Defraggler have large number of users , why Piriform don't give possibility for making user-made defrag scheme. "More heads better than one" (best with GUI , for example: *select box* ( find /defrag) *2nd select box* (biggest file/most
fragmented file/ free space etc.) *3rd select box* (and/or) move the file to *4th select
box* (the biggest free space, the smallest free space which is bigger than file, end HDD .... ) and creating from this "rules" scheme.
3) built-in system for sharing schemes ( see par 2) between users
4) what about make some image ( or utility for making it by self-own user ) of bootable DVD or USB flash for offline defrag of all disc and no only some files ( http://www.piriform....oot-time-defrag )
5)Defragler can defrag individual files. What about adding planner ?? I think, user can add files to planner and execute it. Planer will defrag first file, after that second, third ....... or free space ....

Topic Locked and unpinned as there is an entire forum board for this
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.
