  1. Firefox version: v14.0.1 CCleaner Version: v3.21.1767 (64-bit) Windows OS Version and SP level: MS Windows 7 64-bit SP1 This issue has been present for more than 6 months now, it used to work just fine. From one version to the next the Cookies under CCleaner, Options, Cookies, Cookies to Delete simply do not get deleted any longer when running CCleaner, Cleaner, Run Cleaner button. Checklist: - CCleaner, Cleaner, Windows, Internet Explorer, Cookies (checked!), almost never use IE. - CCleaner, Cleaner, Applications, Firefox, Cookies (checked!) - I have no other web browsers. - Normally I do not run CCleaner in Administrative mode, did so now, but that did not help either. Solution: After more testing it turns out that as long as Firefox is running, no cookies will be deleted by CCleaner, and there is also no warning under CCleaner, Cleaner, Analyze, "Analysis Complete" list. - "Firefox/Mozilla - Internet Cache" shows a "skipped" when Firefox is running, to indicate that the Cache cannot be cleaned. Suggestions: - Adding a Firefox/Mozilla - Cookies "skipped" as well would at least hint to the user that Firefox has to be closed to clean up the Cookies. - Add a user warning telling them to close Firefox if they want to delete cookies. Again I am pretty sure that deleting FF cookies while the browser was running used to work. Thus my surprise when it suddenly no longer worked.
  2. Amazing how anything I mention can be taken the wrong way and made illogical. Nergal, why use CCleaner? Because I do such a clean-up in one go. That's way. Obvious? Sure you can do it all over the place, e.g. you can delete the Firefox files in the cache folder with Directory Opus or some other file browser manually. So it is possible externally to delete the files (all except the first "_CACHE_" files). ident, your comment about making the cache smaller is marginally useful. And as I already mentioned this is *not* about disk space per se, but about cleaning up the system C:\ drive quickly before you run a backup to avoid back-upping junk. Bottom line CCleaner does not clean the Firefox cache when the browser is running. OK. That's all I was checking... because I had the feeling that the changed folder structures in Win7 may be confusing the tool. Apparently not.
  3. ident, I did it many times under XP... it said something like "some files may not have been deleted", but some were gone. No matter. eL_PuSHeR, to free up some HD space. E.g. before you create a backup of C:\. I'll try closing the firefox tasks, and see if CCleaner then works.
  4. Oh Firefox is running... it always is. But since you can clear the cache from "inside" Firefox, CCleaner should at least partially be able to do so under Win7 (since it worked under WinXP).
  5. Recently installed Windows 7 64bit on a new PC (Firefox v3.6.3). I am running the latest version of CCleaner v2.32 (issue has been with previous versions though as well). Issue: When you set Cleaner tab, Applications tab, Firefox/Mozilla, Internet Cache, the tool should clean up the internet cache, and this works under WinXP. There might have been a warning that not all files could be cleaned, because the browser is presently using the files (i.e. running). But now CCleaner only shows: Firefox/Mozilla cache cleaning was skipped. (or is 0 Bytes) after a "Analyze" button run. If that helps, the new cache is located under: C:\Users\<WinAccountName>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\zs2x64a7.default\Cache\ Strange. Any suggestions appreciated.
  6. redhawk, I am not expert on hardware limitations, but from experience: You are right about the controller bandwidth limitations, but you should be aware that these bandwidths are usually several factors above what a real HDD can actually provide. So if you run 4 HDDs, the controller may actually be able to server 2 or 3 of them at full speed. There is another limiting factor: Partitions. Usually HDDs are partitioned, so if you try to defrag more than one partition on the same HDD, there will be "head shreddering". This slows down the defrag speed considerably, plus probably reduces the life of your HDD. So we would be talking about defragging different HDDs. I only have SATA drives, each with a separate connector to the main board. So defragging two drives at the same time, should actually be twice as fast (or almost). Especially if you have a multi-core system (like my i7 920), where CPU power should not be limiting factor, provided the defrags are running in separate threads. Unless I am overlooking something... Ironically my SSD (solid state drive C:\ Win7 64bit) explicitly should *not* be defragged.
  7. (Original thread Defraggler - Interface Design Suggestions got no reaction, archiving info here) Setup: Defraggler v1.06.118 using Windows XP Pro, SP3 I am starting a new suggestion thread because the old one contains many already added suggestions, plus I'd like to get some feedback from the other users here. Some things have been previously suggested, I mention them again to emphasize their, IMO, usefulness. 1) A visual indicator for the Dragbar between Disk Map and Tabs It would be nice to have a visual dragbar separating the disk map from the drive/file list tabs. Additions: Double-click on dragbar to hide the tabs completely and to open them up again. Alternative: A down arrow icon in the dragbar lets the user minimize (or better hide completely) the tabs, thus maximizing the the disk map area (yes, I like to watch the defragmentation in as much detail as possible). An up arrow icon would be shown on the dragbar when the tab area is in minimized (hidden) state, letting the user open up the Drive/File list tabs again on the main screen. 2) Drive List with additional Info Columns - Degree of Fragmentation, Current File As a fan of a large disk map display, I only use the File list tabs when manually quickly defragmenting files. Otherwise I'd minimize it, thus it would be very useful to have a few more stats in the drive list columns at the top of the screen. Once a Analyze (button) has been performed show fragmentation Information in additional columns, i.e. N? of Fragmented Files Total Fragments Fragmentation % of Drive While running Action menu, Defrag Drive ... show the current defrag file in a column next to Status . Show the information of the Status column also in the Defraggler's title bar , letting the user check on the state of defragmentation, when the tool is minimized to the Windows bar at the bottom of the screen (sorry forgot its name)... i.e. it would show (provided minimizing of Defraggler actually works): Periform Defraggler (45%) 3) Remember Size of Drive List, Disk Map, and Tabs areas Since it is now possible to save all setting in an .ini file it should be possible to remember the size of the 3 areas, to avoid having to re-size them every time you restart Defraggler. Also remember if the Tab area is hidden or not (see my suggestion further up). 4) Half-size Disk Map color Squares (blocks) for maximum detail? I run Defraggler on a 1680x1050 screen in full screen mode and love watching Defraggler working on defrags. Since I am a curious fellow, it would be spiffy to half the width and the height of the squares representing the blocks in the disk map, to get four times the block detail . Keeping the one pixel frame (grid) around the blocks should still be fine then. Note: This is intended as an additional alternate mode. The default display mode would still be available for folks that prefer less detail. IMO a huge scrollable disk map (as suggested elsewhere) - like Windows Defrag uses - is not of much use, because you completely loose the overview. 5) File list tab title could show Fragmented File and Fragment counts? Since there is a lot of space left in the Tab titles, I'd suggest updating the " File list " text to show a count for the number of fragmented files shown after a Analyze button run, and the total fragment count. E.g. File list (87 files, 2345 fragments) IMO, it is inconvenient having to look up those numbers in the Drive tab. Hope the suggestions are of some use. AEon
  8. That is pretty much the way I understood it as well. Alas I do not defragment my HDs often enough to track down in more detail what was going on. Will keep an eye on it though the next time I get to defragmenting.

  10. Defraggler v1.06.118 with Windows XP Pro, SP3 Alas there is no online Help for the advanced defragging options: On a lightly fragmented C:\ (61% empty) drive, a defragging via File list tab, will defrag all files, but leave a few gaps in the disk map. If you then Action menu, Advanced, Defrag Freespace (note this is *not* with "(allow fragmentation)") the lower part of the disk map will show many many fragmented red areas and leave a few "blanks" as well. The C:\ drive used to have 83 fragmented files, then after File list defrag 0, and after Defrag Freespace a whopping 53 fragmented files. Shouldn't Defrag Freespace try to remove the "noise" (small file trashing) in the larger blank (white) areas, and when trying to "plug" holes in the larger data blocks (blue areas), only do so if it does *not* lead to file fragmentation? Could someone explain what these advanced options in Defraggler actually do? Defrag Freespace Defrag Freespace (allow fragmentation) I.e. how exactly a "Freespace" is defined? As a programmer I have a few ideas, but my tests do not run conform with my expectations. E.g. one Defrag Space turned out to be pretty much a Defrag Drive. Thanks.
