CCleaner v2.22

We've made a number of changes to CCleaner in this new release. Some you'll notice up front, and some you won't see at all. They're designed to support more software, provide more operating support, and help you get the most out of CCleaner and your PC.

When you click Analyze or Run Cleaner, you'll see a new Results panel. We've redesigned the Results panel so that you can see an overview of files by application and details on each file to be deleted. You can also sort the list, search for specific items, and export the list to a text file. We think you'll like it! :)

We've also added better support for Opera 10 and Safari 4.

We've made even more improvements which are listed below in the full change log:

Recuva v1.29

The latest version of Recuva (v1.29) brings support for new applications and file types, and improved support in other areas.

First, we're pleased to announce that Recuva now supports Mozilla Thunderbird. If you're using this excellent email program, Recuva can restore any emails you've deleted by mistake - using the same interface you're already familiar with (just do a normal scan and look for a file called 'Thunderbird_emails.zip'). The emails are restored as .eml files, so that means attachments are also recovered.

If you're a pro (or prosumer) photographer, you'll appreciate Recuva's new support for the Nikon RAW image file format during the Deep Scan process.

Also for those of you using exFAT for flash drives, we've improved Recuva's support for this Microsoft format.

The full change log is below:

  • Added recovery of deleted Thunderbird emails.
  • Added support for Nikon RAW in Deep Scan.
  • Improved support of exFAT drives.
  • Improved recovery of JPG images from NTFS drives.
  • Various minor tweaks.

Defraggler v1.12

1. Quick Defrag

Defragmentation is a great way to speed up your PC, but it can also take a fair bit of time. If you remember to start Defraggler before you go to sleep, you'll have a faster PC in the morning.

If you run Defraggler (or any defrag program) while you continue to work, though, you'll notice a slight decrease in performance. Now there's a way for you to do a faster, less involved defrag whenever you want.

Introducing Defraggler's Quick Defrag. When you use the Quick Defrag option, Defraggler will operate about 3-4 times faster. The compromise, though, is that it won't use the most intensive, optimal algorithm to reorganize your files. Defraggler still works the same way. Once you're ready to defrag, either click the Defrag button, or click the down-arrow next to it and select Quick Defrag.

2. exFAT compatibility

If you use the new exFAT file system for your flash drives under Windows Vista SP1, you'll be pleased to know that Defraggler now has 100% support for exFAT.

Download Defraggler now!

Here's the full list of changes:

  • Added Quick Defrag feature.
  • Added exFAT compatibility.
  • Architecture changes to improve defrag performance.
  • Improved placement of most commonly used files.
  • Various UI tweaks.
