Hi, Belim.

I just noticed that if you close Cleanmgr+ and  launch it again that the +more items are remembered.  That makes the situation better.  So, apparently, once you run the "Check installed scripts" under the +, the ones that are found are remembered unless/until you run the "Check installed scripts" again.  That is good.

Initially, how to get the +more items to have the "space to gain" calculated is still not intuitive.  That is still a hurdle I think you need to address.

Maybe the option under the + should say:

   "Check which +more scripts are installed"

    or 

   "Check which +more scripts your Windows account is using"


See my message below for other thoughts.

Hi, Belim.

Thank you for the message.  I was able to get Cleanmgr+ to calculate the "space to gain" for those +more items.  ;-)

As you know, this probably isn't intuitive or easy to figure out.  What you have currently works, but I wouldn't necessarily expect most users to figure out how to have Cleanmgr+ calculate the "space to gain" for the +more items.

For the items under the Disk Cleanup tab, the "space to gain" is calculated automatically if you click on the ____ link after gain >.  So, it makes sense that if you go to the +more tab and click the ____ link after gain >, then Cleanmgr+ would calculate the "space to gain" for the +more items.

Also, if "space to gain" has been calculated for the Disk Cleanup tab or the +more items already while Cleanmgr+ is open, then it would be nice if those results were remembered despite switching between the Disk Cleanup tab and the +more tab.  Currently, I can calculate "space to gain" for the Disk Cleanup tab and then for the +more items, but then if I go back to the Disk Cleanup tab, the "space to gain" results are gone and I have to calculate them again. 

Some users might leave Cleanmgr+ open for an hour or two or even longer.  In those cases, perhaps the "space to gain" results should be re-calculated.  However, it would be nice if the results were remembered for each tab for at least for a few minutes or until the ____ link after gain > is clicked again.  If you update Cleanmgr+ so that the +more items can also be calculated manually using the ____ link after gain >, then it would be no big deal for a user to re-calcuate "space to gain" for the Disk Cleanup or +more items if they wanted to.  But, the user might prefer the results to be remembered if/when switching between tabs.

Thank you for all of your work and effort on Cleanmgr+.  ;-)

Hi, Belim.

In the release notes for v1.0.3.249, you mention: 

"Added function to calculate the "space to gain" in "+more/Scripts" tab (this is optional and the space is automatically calculated after hitting the "+more" tab)"

I don't see how to enable this optional function.  I would like to test it.

Hello 0.MRG,

Yes that's true :) Just switch to the +more tab and the calculation runs automatically. Of course, you must have previously pre-check some clean-up items. I would recommend using the "Check installed scripts" function in the main menu > "+"

Cleanmgr+ will report in the status label something like "You can free up + more xxx MB of disk space by cleaning up these items" To refresh the calculation just hit the "+ more" tab again.

I hope I have now a slightly happier user :)

Have a good day
Belim

Thank you, Belim, for the updates to Cleanmgr+.  It continues to get better.

As I have reported before a couple of weeks ago, there is one BIG missing feature/aspect to me compared to Microsoft Disk Cleanup (Cleanmgr) and that is the lack of an estimate of the storage space that EACH ITEM (that could be cleaned) is using and, therefore, the storage space that would be freed up if an item was selected and cleaned.

You added a total amount of storage space that is potentially free (gained) after cleaning, but Cleanmgr+ still does not provide the amount of storage space that each item accounts for.

When I use Microsoft Disk Cleanup, I look at #1) how much storage space each item is using and #2) what each item is to decide on which items I am going to select and have cleaned.  I do not necessarily worry about items that I am unsure about, especially if little storage space will be freed (gained) from cleaning those items.  See the example picture below.

With Cleanmgr+ currently, I have no idea how much storage space each item is currently using and which ones I really want to focus on.  I need and want that information to decide which items I want to clean, or at least which ones are more important to me.  I cannot use Cleanmgr+ in its current form.

Hello,

thanks for your comment. I've included already in the rc (after your comment) an option to show an overview about the used space of each Item in the Disk Cleanup data set.

You have just to click on the link space to "gain". Please take a look into the screenshot

I hope I did not hide this function too much. Did not you know this possibility yet?

Have a great day

A few days ago I saw a post about Cleanmgr+ 0.4.0 and I have been checking out the releases since.  I have seen improvements.  Thank you, Belim!

Hi,

many thanks for your comment. I'm working on several improvements and features. This one is also on my to-do list. I can not say yet, if I manage to build the function already in the final version. Just look at the upcoming versions :)
