  4. Hello The Don, I will concur with the result that I experienced in the prior version. It however was what I wanted and expected it to do. I just wanted these types of large files put at the end of the disk without having to do a "whole disk" defrag. I wanted the prior space made available for additional files. I was not concerned with creating a few defragmented files in the process or moving all the rest of the files toward the outside of the disk at that time. I do mainly "file list" defragmenting. To do what I did, if I recall properly, I set the Move large options on the Defrag tab and then selected Action > Advanced > Defrag Freespace (allow fragmentation). The files were moved all the way to the inside end of the disk. However, the next time I tested a "whole disk" defragmentation the large files were moved directly behind the end of the other files. Too bad that the large files were not kept at the inside end of the disk until I turn off the Move large files option. I have not had a chance to do any such testing with the current version of Defraggler v1.06 . Best wishes, davey

    Windows 7

    Hello Fat Wombat, Welcome to the forums !!! As of Jan 13,2009 the Piriform Docs does not show any support for Windows 7. See the new Documentation and check it for updates. NEW DOCUMENTATION SOURCE as of January 07,2009 Piriform Documentation - Bookmark and save to Favorites docs.piriform.com I would also check every now and then in the Announcements forum. http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showforum=5 Like you say and if it was me I would only use them on prior Windows versions as listed. Good luck, davey P.S. Thank you for bringing it to the other members attention.
  6. Hello StudioGal, Welcome to the forums !!! You are correct and a wise PC user. Never Delete or Uninstall anything that you do not understand. It is easier to ask than try to recover something.

  7. Hello Donn Edwards , Well, it has been awhile and maybe you have already come up with a solution as regards this thread. I figured I would let you know what the forum Members have developed. Some insight was also provided from Ramesh Srinivasan's blog. See this thread. http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=19731 Your site has always been a good source of Defragmentation information for me. http://donnedwards.openaccess.co.za/search...Defragmentation The Great Defrag Shootout + Blogger Court Case I see that I will be doing some more reading to keep up with your legal battle and I do hope that you beat those guys in the long run. ( I didn't realize that "Jaws" sharks could jump that high. I will add that picture to my collection. That B.S. meter is interesting also. ) Best wishes, davey P.S.

  8. Glad to have you checking for those "bad guys" and their "bag of tricks". Really bugs me to think they are trying to trap people looking for Piriform forums. I give all my friends exact links. I never want them just "browsing" for "Cleaners" and "Spystuff" etc. Of course, you already know that there are too many imitation sites on the Internet using all these keywords to lure the "un-informed". I want all those persons that I know to go directly to safe sites. Thanks for your efforts to find these "evil kinds" of sites. Do not worry, "I won't be trying this at home". davey
  9. Hello phone74663, Welcome to the forums !!! Thanks for providing the info needed to help you. Safari cleaning is being looked into by the development team. Safari is being detected by the presence of the Safari program being located here. C:\Program Files\Safari\Safari.exe . It will show on the Applications tab if there. Did you install it in another location ? Anyhow, it is being worked on but you can review this thread. http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showto...6&hl=safari It may help or you will have to manually clean until the "fix" or update is announced.

    do what first?

    Not on this PC, but on others I have found "large" defragmented directories. Like the users with 10s or 100s of thousands of files in one folder. I agree with you also as to when to defragment. I am glad that you brought out this fact. Prior to large installations, it is beneficial to do both "cleaning" and "defragmenting" and possibly some "optimization" to get large infrequently used files out of the way and larger free spaces. Personally, I have learned to wait awhile after any installations to do any "cleaning" or "defragmenting". I will do it a little later when I am satisfied that everything is settled down. By then WinXP is already doing some "optimization" for me by moving frequently used programs and files closer to the front of the disk. Of course, there are many users that get along with little or no "defragmenting" at all. Most Vista users don't even have to think about it, since it is automatically done for them once a week(Wednesday 1:00 A.M.). Best wishes, davey
  13. OK !!! We will grant you the anomaly. We can overlook the short-term memory or long-term memory loss. But the lack of being granted a Favorites entry or a Bookmark? forum.piriform.com members You better dig up a good "guilty smiley" or this one. You have "cut us to the quick". davey P.S. After further contemplation, all is forgiven. After all, you did discover a new "meany" out there. Trying to entrap others searching for "piriform forums". These guys are truly "deceivers". THANKS FOR THE WARNING !!!
  14. Hello theunseen, Welcome to the forums !!! As of this time there is no support for Windows 7. http://docs.piriform.com/CCleaner/introduc...em-requirements For now please change any reference to CCleaner to (cc)leaner in the web address (that is convert the large CC to small cc) It will certainly be a big project but I know Piriform products for Windows 7 will be great. You can be one of the first volunteer users. Best wishes, davey
  15. Congratulations and thanks to all involved. What a terrific site. davey
