  1. Analyze Report

    Is there a way to log Analyze results in a text file?
  2. How about an option in "Tools" between 'Disk Analyzer' and 'Duplicate Finder' to clean up useless and junk files by their extensions? For Example: *.bak;*.chk;*.dmp;*.err;*.old;*.tmp

    How do entries like Sticky Notes end up in Winapp2.ini? We should be very careful.

    Things change over time. I am currently trying Windows 10 Pro Preview build 17112 on one of my systems and lots of things have changed. In computer science/science, there is no final!
  6. Wipe Free Space should be removed from the Advanced tab. The Drive Wiper option under Tools is sufficient.

    In Windows 8/10, TokenBroker/Cache is being used to store login infos, so this should be removed from all the Windows 8/10 related entries. There was a similar issue with the [Security Service Token Cache *] entry, where Windows Insider Program account login infos were being removed. https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=281&tab=comments#comment-292447

    You’re wrong, I have not said that in that post. I have not changed my mind on not deleting container.dat from %LocalAppData%\Packages\appname_*\AC\TokenBroker\Cache There is a difference between %LocalAppData%\Packages\appname_*\AC\TokenBroker\Cache and %LocalAppData%\Packages\*\AC\INetCache As I mentioned in my last post, other programs delete these container.dat files from %LocalAppData%\Packages\*\AC\INetCache. I tested that and there is no harm in deleting these files. I did not know much about these files at that time. When I saw that deleting these files from %LocalAppData%\Packages\appname_*\AC\TokenBroker\Cache was causing issues, I thought all those files should be excluded.

    I have tested some other privacy cleaners and they all remove container.dat file from %LocalAppData%\Packages\*\AC\INetCache\ I think we should remove ExcludeKeys for this from all the Windows Store apps.

    No, it is too dangerous like I said in my previous post. There are options in Adobe programs to remove these files manually.
  12. Winapp2.ini additions

    I suggest removing the [Adobe Media Cache *] entry. If someone starts a project in Premiere Elements or Premiere Pro, save an unfinished project and if this cache is removed, the project will break. I use this when I complete the project, but a person might not know about it and remove this cache while the project is not yet completed. So I think it is dangerous. CyberLink entries have same media cache removal. I’ll install CyberLink trial programs and will test them by removing the cache files the same way I did with Adobe Media Cache files.

    I apologize. I think we should remove the [Security Service Token Cache *] entry. It is causing issues. I know some people personally who use CCleaner with Winapp2.ini and they complained about this entry as well.
  15. Winapp2.ini additions

    It is fine to have a warning, but I suggest to have a separate entry for WDI diagnostic and startup logs..
