  1. Ok, you are explaining why CCleaner is CURRENTLY so slow. But that doesn't mean that CCleaner will be slow forever. Other washer/eraser tools show that the task could perform MUCH faster. Maybe CCleaner should implement: - direct MFT/Cluster/NTFS access instead of using windows file opening DLLs - use concurrent, bundled threads - other possible tricks like grouping of cluster wiping So there is much room for CCleaner improvements. Could you put this on your feature request/todo list? I prefer to use only ONE tool instead of multiple. Since CCleaner is good for many other tasks I am willing to elect it as my one-and-only utiltity. But erasing performance is really a problem. Thank you Thomas
  2. Due to my observations I performed the following experiment (on 64bit Win7 with 16GB memory): I have a huge dir tree with approx 100000 files between 10kb and 1MB each with a total size of approx 20GB I added/included this dir tree as additional folder to wipe. When I perform a CCleaner run it takes around 7 hours (!) to clean all these files (remaining clean stuff is negligible) Before cleaning it with CCleaner I made a copy of it. As comparison benchmark I performed a wiping of this duplicate dirtree with other tools like WipeFile. Surprisingly the WipeFIle requires only ~30 minutes for the same task. That means CCleaner is significantly slower than other tools. - CCLeaner uses "Secure file deletion Simple Overwrite (1 pass) - WipeFile uses Random overwrite (1 time) This is disappointing I suggest urgently to improve wipe speed in the next CCleaner release. Thank you Thomas
  3. In former times I could download a portable version of CCleaner. I do not find this download any more. Is it abolished? Thomas
  4. On my Win7 system I have two independent Firefox installations: - The first "normal" installation of v58.0.2 - The second, portable Firefox v52.60 Firefox ESR version In CCleaner I defined a couple of Cookies which should be kept. When I run now CCleaner it detects and cleans successfully the cookies of the first Firefox installation since it knows the profile path from registry. Unfortunately CCleaner does NOT recognize and clean the second Firefox installation. Is there a way to let CCleaner clean the second Firefox installation (especially the cookies which are not in the "keep"list) as well? Thomas
