    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

    Ist es beabsichtigt, dass beim Löschen der "Windows Downlads" auch der gesamte Ordner gelöscht wird. Dies ist nach meiner Meinung ein Fehler, da nur der Inhalt des Ordners gelöscht werden sollte!

    Hallo,

    danke für die Info. Dies sollte in der Tat so nicht sein. Im Script fehlt noch der entscheidende Zusatz "\*.*", welcher nur die Dateien löscht und nicht den Ordner selbst. Mit der nächsten Build werde ich das Script und auch die Funktionen dahinter noch etwas optimieren und auch den Warn-Hinweis bei "sensiblen" Ordnern wie dem Download-Verzeichnis etwas hervorheben (aufpoppen einer MessageBox o.ä.).

    Danke und Gruß

    Just installed the latest build but I was wondering if you could let me know which item is actually clearing my quick access additional folders please?
    Many thanks for a really great program.

    Hi Lucas,

    I'm glad you're enjoying it :)
    Just uncheck the "Recent Documents" option if you mean this Windows feature https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/4027032/windows-pin-remove-and-customize-in-quick-access

    You can now launch File Explorer to check if Quick Access’s history is untouched.

    Ran the new MS Cumlative Update today. Successfully updated to Build 17763.316. Than I ran Cleanmgr + V0.8. It stated that I had 2GB of space used due updated files. It ran successfully.??? I than ran Storage Sense and it showed I had 2GB of data used for updating purposes. I thought Cleanmgr+ would cleanup the update files and Storage Sense would show 0GB update file size. Bye the way, the same action took place on 4 machines all running W10 Pro upgrading to Build 17763.316.

    Hello,

    i think the Windows Update files clean-up with Cleanmgr and/or Storage sense includes also the clean-up/compression of Windows Component Store (WinSxS folder). I will add this feature in the upcoming final of Cleanmgr+ as a separate option. Btw, did you run it as Administrator?

    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!

    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.

    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 :)

    Cleating out prefetch data does not speed up anything. I cannot have any faith in a program that thinks that it does. the prefetch contents get cleaned automatically by the OS anyway. Only *one* thing can speed up the use of prefetch data.

    Hello DrTeeth,

    your are right. Any performance gains you may see will be minor (if you see any at all). I will update the Description text. It is still not final :)

    Just found your program and might donate.  I realize how much work this is and was curious about a few things that I can't find.   How would I add a program say Photoshop Elements?   How can one search in the forums?  I clicked on both search icons but never got to the input spot for item to search for? Thanks for this great program.

    Hello,

    i really appreciate your comment and support. Many thanks! The website search does not trawl the Community. I will add soon a separate search option for this. For creating custom Plug-ins, please take a look into the documentation https://www.getclone.app/downloads/ca_docs/manual.pdf (Chapter 3).

    Kind regards from Germany
