  1. If it isn't it's worth turning off manually when using 3rd party defrag tools because it's been known for years they can trigger the creation of System Restore Points that hog the HDD space. It's just a matter of remembering to turn System Restore ("System Protection") back on if that's desired.
  2. Actually Win10 1909 likes me very much Hazelnut! It's the only hiccup I noticed on a Dell laptop and an Acer laptop. I reported it to Microsoft, so they'll at least be aware of it. I'm avoiding MBAM 4 here Nukecad for the GUI issues I have with it.
  3. Just a heads up for anyone installing 1909. On those two laptops I had to manually turn on Windows Defender real-time protection after the update, for whatever reason real-time protection was disabled after the systems started.
  4. How about [Ashampoo CrashRPT Logs *] or whatever. Can't imagine someone remembering exactly what that generic folder path in Windows is associated with later on if it doesn't have the vendor name attached to it since Ashampoo products don't have a unique LangSecRef. ---------------------------- Edit: Perhaps also, just giving ideas: [Ashampoo Snap CrashRpt *] Section=Crash Reports DetectFile=%LocalAppData%\CrashRpt Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\CrashRpt|*.*|RECURSE
  5. Installed all those updates on two laptops and the optional feature update to 1909 and all worked well with no issues. If their new approach is to slowly release a new version via cumulative updates it seems to be working from what I can tell because version 1909 is the first "major" update that hasn't caused any obvious issues for me.
  6. Changing monitoring settings (note this feature is now rebranded as Smart Cleaning in CCleaner): CCleaner Free: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/ccleaner-settings/changing-monitoring-settings-ccleaner-free CCleaner Pro: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/ccleaner-settings/changing-monitoring-settings-ccleaner-professional/system-monitoring
  7. That old "Documents and Settings" path which is hidden from view in Win10 will still open and show files and folders if for instance opening the path via 'Run' in the 'Start Menu', however like Trium stated it's now mapped to AppData.
  8. You can undo what the registry cleaner did, but only if you allowed it to create the .reg file backup when prompted. The default location for that .reg file(s) backup(s) would be in the Documents / My Documents folder. As for restoring site details such as cookies in a web browser that remember you so you don't have to login everytime you'll unfortunately have to login to those websites again for the cookie to be saved onto your computer again. After doing that you can go into CCleaner and then configure which cookies to keep which should then ignore deleting those cookies in your web browser(s). Note that it also depends upon how the site in question is configured, some require you to login each time such as bank sites, etc., and I'd imagine a medical records website wouldn't want that info easily compromised either in the event a computer was stolen, etc.
  9. You stated the drive contains your Acronis disk image backups, from my experience if it's a data only drive with no OS installed onto it with the main purpose being to only make backups you end up wasting allot of your time allowing any third party defrag tool to fully optimize it - unless of course you place a file size limit on what it can and cannot move. Hence the reason I mentioned only defragmenting what's listed in the File List. Windows own built-in optimize and defrag will then attempt to consolidate/optimize/fill gaps on the drive (if scheduled to do so, but it's good to manually invoke it when you want it to run) so you have larger areas of free space, however with Win10 it will only bother with files that are 64MB (yes megabytes) in size or smaller. As for defragmenting disk image backups it's important to take into consideration that defragmenting them doesn't really give you a performance boost and how big in file size the disk images are takes a long time to defragment them. For instance if I had a 50GB disk image backup with 20 fragments I wouldn't waste one second of my time defragmenting it since those fragments would be 2.5GB in size each, and I especially wouldn't defragment it if it were going to be a "throw away" disk image I'd be replacing with a new one within a 3 month period. I know it's a 180 degree shift in thinking on how to defragment (or how we were taught to do it) however it doesn't unnecessarily waste your time or put hours of stress onto a backup drive.
  10. The issue I see with drive C listed in the above screenshot is the available free space of only 5%, most defrag tools do a lousy job if they don't have at least 15% or 20% free space available and some give up very early on in the defrag. The only defrag software I've ever seen or used that can work albeit very slowly without allot of available free space are the discontinued JkDefrag and it's also discontinued successor MyDefrag.
  11. Did it just start doing that today? If so, you may want to check when your license actually expires since their licensing server has been causing allot of people issues today as seen here. If that isn't the issue and you don't plan on renewing an easy way to stop it is to uninstall, and then get the newest freeware Slim build installer from here.
  12. As for verifying data has been successfully overwritten you can use Recuva to scan the drive(s) after the wipe.
  13. When you state you "protected" the cookies did you configure that in CCleaner, or was it something else you did? To configure CCleaner so that it stops deleting them do the following as detailed in the help documentation, then test it to make sure it works: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/ccleaner-settings/choosing-which-cookies-to-keep
  14. Glad they removed it, my mother's download folder is so full of stuff going back years and running Disk Cleanup I'd always double-check what I selected when running maintenance on that laptop.
