CCleaner only clears CHK files from wherever Windows puts them when it runs the chkdsk, I do not believe that a folder called 000 in the root of C is a default location.

If you look on the web a lot of people have experienced a lot of different things, most of which are not relevant to computers.

 

I think you are wrong to assume that CCleaner will remove C:\*\*.chk files.

It may well remove .chk files that are naturally created on a particular path by the particular operating system,

but it should avoid removing any such files that are created on some other path by an application.

,chk files shouldn't be cleaned by CC by default as they could be used to 'restore' a lost file.

the found.000 folder naming convention is created when Windows finds a bad drive sector during normal use and not by the CHKDSK operation. (unless the operation itself finds more lost files)

files in the bad sector are renamed to xxxxxxxx.chk in an attempt to recovery the contents of the bad sector.

 

if you want CC to clean it, you'll need an INCLUDE

hello

thanks to all for replies.

i have no idea how i would restore a file from this lot .Yes they did come from running scan check on faulty drive which the removal of has repaired the drive. As matter of interest it was not the C drive but he D data drive that was giving problems . It would cause PC to crash badly and i could not run defrag on it . Now i can. It was crashing when making slide show so i guess it was when D drive had to rush around looking for picts it met the bad sectors.

cheers john
