Is it normal that my cache cleaning takes more than an hour? I used to use the old version and after reinstalling the system I decided to try the new version. the old version cleared the same files in 10-15 minutes.

If you have Secure Delete enabled that could be the cause. Even what you explain what it did previously at 10-15 minutes is a very long time.

Are you only cleaning weekly or monthly for such long times?

I remembered that I had configured secure deletion, just to try. And I think that before cleaning did not take me 10 minutes but a few seconds. The problem is solved.

Glad it's solved. It's one of those settings that's easy to forget about, the same if enabling Wipe Free Space.

I'm surprised they've never added an additional button for cleaning with something like: "Run Cleaner (Secure)", or "Run Secure Cleaner".
