  4. Hello fellows, I´m using Defraggler to try to move the files to the beginning of a seagate 8Tb hard disk. Although Defraggler shows that the files are not fragmented, I see great portions of gap between them. These files are only video and common files, not system files nor important files. I used the option defragg freespace, but it looks like it stays at 16% forever, moving some little things or not for 4 hours and the view is basicaly the same ( It doesn´t seem to work ), so I had another idea: Copy all files to another Hard disk and bring them back. Well, when I do that, the folder is copied fine, but when I watch on defraggler, it´s not contiguous, it´s written part on the beginning of the disk and parts around the middle of the disk, and I wanted that these files could be located at the beginning of the disk because they are video files, I need speed. What could be happening ? Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance.
  5. Winapp2.ini additions

    Shall we add "*\Sync Data\LevelDB|*.*" as in siliconman01's entry for the Chromium-based Edge? If so, then I think we can also use "*\Sync Data|*.*|RECURSE" as a single FileKey, right?
  6. Wipe clipboard history (Windows 10 1809)

    That and you'd have to have a Microsoft account for it to be partially cloud-based, if you use a local account it should remain local.

    You'd never get anything done, the website would state Under Construction, and then underneath it an image of a beach ball with the text On Vacation.
  8. CCleaner Pro Software Updater

    Many thanks. I shall wait for the next CoreFTP update; hope they will clear this up.

    ^ Thanks for the reply Dave.

    Yup, an office on the costa Del Sol would certainly be nice!

  14. Speccy - No updates since May 2018

    @Robbie: Coming - yes. Imminent - no. Defraggler, Speccy, Recuva and CCleaner for Mac were all due for an update. CCleaner Mac got one a month ago and is due another later this year for Catalina compatibility. The increasing user base for Speccy was overloading the server, so that got a refresh earlier this month. To confirm, updates to the client software for Defraggler, Speccy and Recuva are certainly planned. No committed dates at this point in time, but we're aiming for later this year.
  15. Avast CEO paid peanuts

    Welcome back! We are pretty much all in the London office (this shiny glass thing here) - except for a few folks in North America. Disappointingly, my suggestion that we should open up an office on the Costa Del Sol have so far been ignored.
  16. Speccy - No updates since May 2018

    Thanks hazelnut!
  17. Thanks for the above link. I didn't realise that clipboard is partly now cloud based but the above article shows how to clear clipboard history. If I've read the above correctly the clipboard history is only cloud based if you choose to sync across devices. On my laptop I haven't enabled that feature nor have I enabled Clipboard History. As a result there's nothing showing when I press the Windows key + v even though I've used Clipboard a few times today. At least this thread has made me aware of a potential security problem.
  18. Speccy - No updates since May 2018

    The nearest answer I can find for you Robbie is here https://forum.piriform.com/topic/54222-net-framework-48/?tab=comments#comment-307757
  19. Avast CEO paid peanuts

    Apologies if this is off-topic but I'm curious... I know that Avast bought Priform a couple of years ago but is Piriform still based in the UK? I've looked on wikipedia and see that Avast is a Czech based company. The Piriform management team (listed on the About Us page at this website) seem to be London based. I'd like to think that the company is still London based! As I posted, it's just curiosity that has got me wondering. It's a long time since I've visited this forum so I'm a bit out touch (I see there's still a number of posters here who I recognise from years ago, so hi!).
  20. Speccy - No updates since May 2018

    I visited the forum to ask pretty much the same question as the original poster. I was wondering if an update to Speccy is imminent? Not that I have any hardware that the current version can't detect but I am curious if the Speccy project has been put on the back burner? I have been using the FileHippo App Manager to regularly check for updates to the various software I have on my computer but for weeks now the App Manager hasn't worked, it never connects to the FileHippo server and just times out. So now I'm having to manually check software for updates (I found one for CCleaner today). But I am curious as to what the future holds for Speccy as well as Defraggler and Recuva as all three programs have not been updated for well over a year.
  21. Wipe clipboard history (Windows 10 1809)

    Isn't it stored online now in the cloud. If it is then CCleaner and no other cleaning tool can touch it. Seems it is cloud-based to some extent, see here: https://www.howtogeek.com/351978/using-windows-10s-new-clipboard-history-and-cloud-sync/
  22. I have just updated to Windows 1903 and turned on the clipboard history. When there were a few entries in the clipboard history list: --- I launched CCleaner 5.60.7307 portable. --- I checked that 'clipboard' was checked under custom clean --> Windows --> System. --- I ran CCleaner. Unfortunately, the whole clipboard history is still there, including the most recent clip. - - - - - - - - I need hardly say how dangerous this is. People copy passwords, contact details, . . . using the clipboard, and there was previously little problem because only the most recent clip was kept. Now all the clips are all kept, after reboot, and potentially for a long time. CCleaner users will be expecting that when they tick 'clipboard', all those entries will disappear each time CCleaner is run, but they don't. Could I suggest that Piriform: 1. Update CCleaner as soon as possible to fix this. 2. In the meantime, advise its users of the security problem, and the fact that they need to go to Settings --> System --> Clipboard --> Clear to get rid of their old clips. - - - - - - - - I very much doubt that Windows is overwriting old clips in the way that CCleaner can do, and the old clips can surely be recovered by an expert. I am turning off Clipboard history until it is established that CCleaner is working properly on the Clipboard history, and is overwriting that history securely.

  24. I don't think this is the case because sometimes CCleaner does stay opened.
  25. Last week
  26. CCleaner does not appear under Accessibility->Services where I should be able to grant access for a Deep Clean. Is there another place this can be granted? Or how do I get CCleaner on the list of Services displayed? Thanks for your help

    I have the same problem... I find and select files to delete; press delete; then get message "Some files were not deleted." (In fact none are deleted.) Any ideas

      Forum Rules

      Welcome to the Piriform Forums!     In order to keep the forums running well and to prevent problems, please follow these simple rules for the forums. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact one of The Moderating Team.     1: Be respectful to all members when posting.   No flaming, personal attacks such as flaming, instigating "flame bait", verbal abuse or mocking of members in forum posts are not tolerated at the Piriform Forums. Such posts will be deleted on sight and moderated accordingly. If you are a long standing member, act like one.   Lead by example and assist other newer members rather then attacking them. Members that reply to posts simply to instigate argument will be warned. Should you ignore this warning you will be banned.     2: No Warez (links) & Cracks.   Help, requests or posts that discuss circumvention. This includes linking to illegally obtained software, movies & music files - posting about it, and suggesting to get it.     3: Don't post your question under multiple topics.   Think before posting and choose the right forum for your question or answer. Be sure to check the pinned topics or use the Search feature to see if your question has already been addressed. When posting, have something to say, not just "My first post!"     4: No spamming, ever!   Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it off topic or on topic.   Examples include: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are spam, either to annoy, advertise or increase a member's post count. Resurrecting old forum posts is also not appreciated unless it serves a worthy cause to the forum. This determination is made by the forum Moderator or Administrator and is not up for discussion.     5: Unacceptable Forum or News comments.   While some members feel that post count is important, there are some posts that do not contribute to the community in any way whatsoever. Below is a list of unacceptable posts. If you wish to direct a fellow member to something that has already been posted, please do so in a courteous manner.   "Old news" or anything similar.   "(Insert product or brand) sucks" or anything similar.   "I posted this x days ago!!!" or anything similar.     6: Avatars, signatures and custom user titles.   I: Avatars are a luxury for the members to have. Avatars can be a maximum of 90x90 and 50kb in size. Avatars can also be in any of these formats: gif, jpg, jpeg, png.   II: Forum signatures are to be used respectfully, so do not annoy our members by making your signature into some sort of web ad. Signatures can be a maximum of 350x100 and 80kb in size.   III: You may have an image at the maximum of 350x100 in your signature at the standard text size and four lines of text with the image.   IV: You may have a maximum six lines of text in your signature at the standard size. Larger font sizes are allowed so long as they do not break the 350x100 limit.   V: X-Fire signatures are an exception to this rule as they only have two sizes that are preset.   VI: Advertising in your signature is strictly prohibited. Linking to a product that competes against Piriform is strictly prohibited.   VII: Custom user titles are not to be abused. Vulgarity, racism or flaming in member titles will not be tolerated.   VIII: Inappropriate content such as Pornographic, violent or otherwise offensive images, language etc. This may include racist remarks, slander etc...   IX: If the avatar/signature is overly distracting, ie. bright flashing colors, animated signatures (i.e. GIF's/Flash) Audio and Video. These are distracting for our members, so do not have audio or video in your signature.   X: Please do not include signature links of a malicious nature. Examples are those that crash your browser, trigger popup floods or emulate BSOD's.   XI: Do not use your signature to link to pages that contain objectionable material. This includes, warez, cracks, pornography, pyramid schemes, referral ID's, ebay listings and requesting personal donations.   Abusing these privileges will result in them being lost and your account being restricted. Disregarding the above rules will result in the loss of the item in violation without warning.     7: Posts in a particular forum need to stay on topic.   If you want to talk about something that is drastically removed from the topic of a forum, please take it to "The Lounge". The Lounge was set up and designed for members to discuss issues not related to a specific forum section. We welcome most general conversation in The Lounge, but discourage it from other forums.     8: Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention.   Please refrain from using CAPITALIZATIONS in the topic title or when participating in threads because they will not attract attention - instead it will annoy many of the Piriform Forum members.   Very often we see meaningless subjects in topic title. They give no clue of what the posts are all about.   For example: Oh no! | I'm mad | Please help.   This should be avoided. Users should enter something more specific in topic title so that it is easier for others to help.   A few good examples:   CCleaner crashes during the analysis | Registry issues keep reappearing after scanning with CCleaner Issues | Computer very slow to startup.     9: No alternate accounts are allowed.   Should you be disciplined with a restriction or ban, you are not allowed to open a new account to obtain freedom to post. Restrictions and bans are given for a reason, and usurping that ability by re-registering is not tolerated.   If another account is opened, that account will be banned immediately, and the original account will be further penalized. Anyone who has warnings on their account are automatically excluded from changing their user name.     10: Giving advice on Malware Removal.   Giving advice on the removal of Malware by any member is to be discouraged. Even though some members may believe they have the knowledge to offer some basic safe advice, it may not be the "best" advice, and could also set a precedent for any member, knowledgeable or otherwise, to do the same.   Advice should only be dispensed by a qualified Malware Removal Expert on a reputable Malware Removal Forum.   This is to prevent "wrong" advice, albeit well meaning, being given by non qualified members, which could have disastrous consequences for the original poster.   If someone asks for help on removing Malware would members please limit themselves to pointing them to one or all of the following Malware Removal Forums ...   1: BleepingComputer   2: Geeks to Go   3: MalwareBytes Malware Removal   4: Malware Removal Forum   5: Cyber Tech Help   6: Avast Malware Removal Forum     11: Inappropriate Content.   No content, or advice or requests for assistance, relating to any activity that the moderators consider to be illegal or offensive will be tolerated.     12: The Piriform Staff requires that members respect the decision of moderators.   Threads and posts questioning the actions or decisions of forum moderations will be deleted on sight, and the appropriate action taken (up to and including forum bans) against the thread starter and/or participants.   Reporting System: Do not abuse the report system, while we appreciate members reporting bad behavior, we don't appreciate rude comments or your opinion on how 'quick' staff are at handling problems around here.   However, as a member you reserve the right to PM any Moderator or Administrator regarding action taken at the Piriform Forums.     13. Closed or removed an unacceptable post or topic:   Once an administrator or moderator has closed or removed an unacceptable post or topic it's then deemed to be a closed matter. If the member starts a new topic or posts with the same or similar unacceptable content it will result into administrative actions being taken against the member.   14. Publishing the content of Private Messages:   Please be aware that the posting of any contents of private messages (PM's) is expressly forbidden on the forum unless both parties have agreed to it.   15. Requesting help with computer issues via the pm (private messaging) system:   The pm (private messaging) system isn't to be used for requests for help with computer issues.   All requests for help must be posted in a topic on the forum where the poster will benefit from the knowledge and expertise of all members, and many others will benefit from the answers and solutions provided.   If any member (which includes moderators) wants to volunteer aid by pm after a topic has first been opened, then that's up to him or her and is perfectly acceptable.   Using the pm system as an alternative to opening a topic where everyone may benefit, isn't the correct or fair way to use that system, and could put members into the uncomfortable position of having to refuse requests for help, or worse still, being unable to refuse.   If any member is in that position, and still doesn't know what to do, then please pm one of the moderators, and they will sort it out quickly, confidentially, and in as friendly a way as possible.     Note:   Any infraction of these guidelines will result in a warning placed against your Piriform Forum account and will be added to your overall warning level.
