How Add All The Junk Files

Recommended Posts

<_< In OPTIONS> Customize I can add files to be deleted.

how add for example the . tmp or .log files to be deleted?

In the partition C:\ I want to delete all the .tmp files present on this partition.

How? C:\.tmp ? or C:\*.tmp? C:\*.*tmp?

i've tried several combo but don't find the files as using the search files of Windows

 

 

Thanks

Hello gitto and welcome :)

 

You don't need to add the .temp or log files it is done automatically by ccleaner when you clean,

 

see here for more info.

and others junk files? I remember that sometime ago I've used another cleaner program that has in the "Clean list" several file extensions of junk files not only .tmp and .log.These extra extensions I don't see in the list of files do be deleted after "analyze" of CC

 

 

Thank you

What other "junk" files are you thinking of?

 

I ask because, as I am sure you know, it's not really a good idea to delete all sorts of things, it can lead to problems.

 

Do you have something nasty on your computer that you cannot delete?

With CCleaner only Junk-Files within the Windows-Directionary are deleted. CCleaner doesn?t mess with the whole C:\ Partition. You?ll need a separate Program for an Overall-Cleaning.

 

You can take advantage of Regseeker (Freeware - doesn?t need any installation / *.zip).

 

 

http://www.hoverdesk.net/dl/en/RegSeeker.zip

 

 

Once the programm is extracted - Go to > "Find in Registry" > "Search Files" (tick box on rightside).

 

Make sure "Hidden Files" and "System Files" are marked.

 

Copy the following extensions into the: "Search for" box.

 

 

*.tmp; *.temp; *.gid; *.chk; *.~*;*.log;*.sik;*.bak;*.txt;*.db;*.old;*.pf;*mscreate.*

 

 

this is an agressive cleaning of unused files.

 

Anyway beware of some *.txt and *.log files before deleting. Log?s are sometimes used by Firewalls and Txt?s can contain Filter-Definitions for Local Proxies. Watch for the Prompt-Out before Final Deletion.

Oliver - would you say it is safer (in general) to use RegSeeker for this type of cleaning if you remove the *.txt and *.log from the initial list you posted?

Yes - not safer but more practical, concerning the cleaning of Junk-Files (whatever you define as Junk) aswell as the cleaning of Registry-Errors. CCleaner and Regseeker can complement one another quite well.

Removing .txt files (text documents) isn't recommended!

Andavari is right - leave the TXT?s and LOG?s out, as long as you?re not sure what to do with them. The proposal above referred to an "agressive" cleaning, where most of the TXT?s on an average User-System can turn out being unused, unread and therefore are redundant.
