FIle Deleter Needed


B

BeeJ

I recently had a problem with files being left in the %TEMP% (and subs)
folder.
I uses CCleaner (ran twice) to clean up; however, CCleaner did not
delete all files. I am using the standard CCleaner checked options
that are set as initially installed.
These were files that Shift-Delete DID delete after the CCleaner run.

So is there a better %TEMP% cleaner?

BTW as probably most know it you select %TRMP% folder and Shift-Delete
it most likely will halt and tell you that one file could not be
deleted leaving all the other delete-able files alone. Poor Win
design! Takes forever to sift through and Shift-Delete all that can be
deleted.

So, note what the locked one is, go into the folder, select all
(Ctrl-A), then find the locked one, and Ctrl-click it to deselect it;
you should then be able to shift-delete all the rest. Or are there
actually more than one such?

(I agree, bad design.)

It's not a problem, it's how you have CCleaner set up. Check out the
Advanced options. That behavior is controllable by you.
