Is there actually anything on the external hard drive that CCleaner could clean?

CCleaner does not defragment files.

I think they just want to be able to run it from a usb drive without having to install it.

It would clean drive C: but from the thumbdrive, & without install.

Hi all, or you could use this batch file that I made a while ago ;) - the cool part is that it will 'auto-detect' if CCleaner is already installed on the 'Target' PC and if it is then simply run it. However, if it does not find a previous installation it then installs it in the background, runs then uninstalls itself without any user interaction :D

 

 

@ECHO OFFECHO  %date% - %time%: CCleaner InitializingIF EXIST "%systemdrive%\program files\CCleaner" GOTO RUNLOCALCCgoto RUNTUNEUPCC:RUNTUNEUPCCCALL ".\Tools\Applications\CCSetup.exe" /SCALL "%systemdrive%\program files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe"CALL "%systemdrive%\Program Files\CCleaner\uninst.exe" /SECHO  %date% - %time%: FinishedECHO.GOTO END:RUNLOCALCCCALL "%systemdrive%\program files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe"ECHO  %date% - %time%: FinishedECHO.:END

 

 

Simply update the paths as required to where your .exe is located on your USB pen drive etc...

 

Hope this helps
