Please note that if you use Windows Media Player to organise your music, the new Windows Media Player entry in "Applications\Multimedia" ...

 

WIPES OUT YOUR DATABASE!!

 

... and that's not shouting, just emphasising the point for folk who do, as it's a lot of work setting it up again and it doesn't have any kind of auto backup.

 

I wish new entries like this, which are damaging, weren't checked by default.

 

Why would database files be classed as something to remove?

 

 

EDIT: This is WinXP SP3.

Agree with this. This was added to Winapp2.ini and I spokme out against it. Some how it seems to have crossed over without the proper removal of database removal or at least the warning that appears in Winapp2

 

This is the offending Item

FileKey4=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Media Player|*.wmdb

I noticed build 1689 was available now (on Filehippo) dated 27/3/2012 with a release note that it fixes a bug in Windows Media Player

 

However, when I installed it and ran it (in Analyze mode this time) it appeared to still delete all of my WM photo amd music index entries just like build 1688

 

I did not run it in delete mode this time !

 

I am on Win XP SP3

Both versions ... CCleaner 3.17.1689 and CCleaner 3.17.1688 wiped important music database files.

 

Go back to CCleaner 3.16.1666 which I've just moved from (and very quickly back to). It leaves these files safely where they should be. You're very wise to "analyze" first.

The Media Player section did in fact remove what I was reporting, did I miss something is something else that is taken?

The only other changes from 3.16 and the new version of 3.17 are

RegKey8=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Services\MediaGuide|CachedIconPath
RegKey9=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Services\MediaGuide|CachedLargeLogoPath

and

FileKey3=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Media Player\Art Cache\LocalMLS|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey4=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Media Player\Transcoded Files Cache|*.*|RECURSE

 

Are you sure that you properly upgraded?

Are you sure that you are not also using (an outdated) Winapp2.ini and it is removing the DB?

 

IMHO it's better to protect the file with exclude than to roll back to 3.16

Based on the results from "Analyze", 1688 deletes the WM database and Art Cache but 1689 leaves the database but still deletes the Art Cache (MLS data).

 

I want to keep the Art Cache (WM thumbnails) as well as the db so I'm sticking with 1666 for the moment

My error, the version I downloaded from FileHippo was 1688, which was the latest when I grabbed it, but not the latest.

 

Honest mistake, and as tapley says, 1689 does not touch the music database but it does remove the art cache.

 

Although that didn't save me losing a complicated set up when the music database went with 1688.

Luckily (or un-so) I've had to replace my wmdb a number of times due to corruption, you can get your old version out of Volume Shadow (Windows Explorer previous versions). If I recall you'll need to (with wmp closed) name the file the name of the wmdb(s) that are in the folder (if you've recreated any).
