Defraggler v1.11

We've made some noticeable changes to how Defraggler operates - some fun, some important.

Large Files and Free Space Defrag

First, if you use Defraggler to defragment your free space, you can now tell it to leave large files alone while doing that.

Why? When Defraggler defrags the free space on your drive, it does so to optimize the free space -- and it may end up moving large files around in the process. If you've used Defraggler previously to optimize the drive by setting it to move large files to the end of it, your optimizations may be undone.

The solution is to let Defraggler know you don't want it to move large files during free space defragmentation. Here's how:

1. In Defraggler, click Settings, and then click Options.
2. On the Options dialog box, click the Defrag tab.
3. Be sure the Move large files to the end of drive during whole drive defrag is selected.
4. Select Do not move 'Large Files' during Defrag Freespace.
5. Click OK.

Custom colors - for the Picasso in you

If you'd like to change the colors Defraggler uses in its drive map, we've added a feature that makes it possible. You can now set custom colors for each type of sector (small box) displayed in the Drive Map.

To set custom colors for the Drive Map:
1. In Defraggler, click Settings, and then click Options.
2. On the General tab, select Use custom drive map colors, and then click Edit.
3. To change a color, click the color box next to the item and select a new color. To reset the color to its default setting, click the color box, and then click Default.
4. Click Save.

CCleaner v2.20

CCleaner, as with all of our products, is designed to be easy-to-use. You've probably used software that's hard to work with, provides unclear options, or doesn't work consistently from one screen to the next. We have, and we don't like it.

Frequently we'll make some changes to the CCleaner user interface to make it easier to use. Those changes form the bulk of this release.

More right-click and CTRL-click action:

You can now right-click an item in the Registry Integrity list (for example, MUI Cache) to have CCleaner scan just those types of Registry items.

In the main Cleaner section, you can click an item heading (for example, Internet Explorer) and select all sub-items, clear all sub-items, or restore the default.

You can now select multiple items in the Include, Exclude, and System Restore sections. To select multiple items, hold down the Control key and click each one.

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

CCleaner v2.20.920

  • Added support for Google Chrome recently closed tabs.
  • Disabled removal of most recent System restore point.
  • Fixed bug with Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View settings.
  • Improved uninstaller support for Windows 7.
  • Enhanced right-click menu options for Cleaner screen tree.
  • Added extra information under title for Options and Tools screens.
  • Added right-click menu to Registry screen tree.
  • Added support to multi-select items in Include, Exclude and System Restore screens.
  • Added language support for Estonian and Farsi.
  • Internal 64-bit improvements.
  • Minor bug fixes.
