System restore?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this a CCleaner bug or not, but . . .

 

I just downloaded the free version of CCleaner and did Analyze / Run Cleaner.

 

Then began checking out the options under "Tools."  Everything was good until I came to "System Restore."    It's been 30 minutes now, and nothing shows up -- just the continuous little circle that I assume means "we're trying . . . "

 

Looks like I have a ton of issues under "Registry" but I'm gonna hold off of that until I can find out what the problem is with System Restore.

 

This rank beginner will much appreciate any help or advice!

What operating system are you using?

 

Please don't do a reg issues clean unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing.

hazelnut -- sound advice, without a doubt.  I'm hopefully getting there . . .   My OS is Windows 10 64-bit.  It's an HP w/ i5 processor, 8 GB Ram,  919 GB HD with 142 GB currently used.  Bought it over 5 years ago (ouch!).  

 

Andavari -- Turns out I has System Restore "ON" but didn't have any space allocated for it -- hence no Restore Point existed..    I moved the slider to 6% (55.14 GB) and manually created a System Restore Point.  Then I went back into CCleaner / Tools / System Restore, and Voila! there it was, no problem.

 

Onward.  What else do I need to know before I do a Registry clean?  I'll back up all my documents, music and pictures to my portable HD of course.  Not sure if I should (or could ?) back up my whole system that way or not . . . Would that be feasible?

 

Anyway, thanks to you both for replying.

It's always good to backup your whole system. I do it once every two weeks, but that is just me. I have never had any issues with the Registry Cleaner, but I have a default system. I don't have any custom system folder locations, or any different locations for anything major. Just create a system restore point and backup the registry when asked during cleaning (you just never know).

 

If you run into any issues, feel free to post here.
