Protecting a file from being cleaned

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to protect a file from cleaning?

There are two small flash based games I play that save their progress in an .sol file under flashplayer.

 

I am able to locate them under the Detailed Results option after analysis.

Is there any way to choose "Do Not Delete This File" and perhaps remember that setting?

 

Thanks

Yes, enter the path/file in the Options/Exclude section. Details can be found in docs.piriform.com.

A-HA!

I must have looked at that tab a hundred times without noticing it. :P

 

Worked.

But a bit tedious.

The way I did it was to "Open Containing Folder" of the file, create a shortcut to the actual file and copy its "Target" from properties into the "Add File" command in CCleaner.

 

THANKS!

Mike Lin's explorer context menu PathCopy (there are other similar products out there) has proved to be one of those small but indispensable widgets I've used on practically every machine I've worked on in the last ten years. Simple. Clean. Works on folder or file names. http://www.mlin.net/other.shtml

I have read that many users of AVG , like me, and who also use CCleaner, see this file: incavi.avm being deleted when they scan.

 

This file is a backup of the update for AVG antivirus. It is about 40 000Kb.

 

I have excluded the file from beeing deleted this way: in Options/Exclude I entered :

 

C\ProgramData\avg8\update\backup\incavi.avm

 

It does'nt work. After "Analyse" I still see the incavi.avm file in the list.

And when I click "Run cleaner" all the files in the backup folder dissappear.

 

The system is Vita Home Premium.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

thanks for any suggestion
