Changes I made to reduce Defraggler run time from more than a day to less than 6 hours for 1TB on Windows 7 Defrag was super slow prior to doing this. Go to Settings > Options > Advanced tab Check - Save all settings to INI file Check - Stop VSS when defragmenting NTFS volume Check - Use custom fragmention settings: - click Define button - check box on both options: Exclude restore point, and, Exclude hibernation file.
SOLVED: Just setting up new computer and was freaking out that all the system restore points (after each software install) were gone in Ccleaner. Never happened before on old computer - so I played with the settings and added restore points and now it is keeping them. Here's how: 1) Go to Options > Settings > Wipe Free Space drives > UNCHECK - (C:) (or the name for your drive) AND UNCHECK - Wipe MFT Free Space You can always manually wipe free space by going to Tools > Drive Wiper > Wipe (Free Space Only) > Choose the Security (# of passes) you want > Check - C: (or the name for your drive). Not sure if these one time manual wipe wipes the MFT as well though. If not, go to #1 and reCheck items and then do a manual wipe and then go back and uncheck those items if you want to keep restore points until you choose to delete them or windows automatically does.
