    CCleaner has prompted me to update 3 times in the last few days.

    I had a look on the Piriform site and there is a lot of discussion about the new active monitoring, which isn't particularly bothering me so far.

    Through someone's signature I found there is a version called CCleaner-Slim. Does anyone use this, or know how it is different to the standard version?

    I found this---

    This "Slim" version of CCleaner is identical to the standard version but does not offer to install a toolbar. It is usually updated a week or so after the standard version is updated.

    Default is just fine,you might want to change under options-settings-wipe free space,so that cleaning,will not take more than a couple of seconds.
    Registry?Never an issue,but do take a look before,just in case.

    Not recommended for SSD, CCleaner will warn you about this.

    "Wipe free space" is clicked by default and I am recommending to uncheck,what warning are you getting?

    O.k. did not clearly state in that post to say to uncheck it, but mine is and always was by default unchecked. Now i tried to just to see to check it and i get this message.

    Secure wiping of Drive C: Not recommended.
    Drive C: is a solid-state drive (SSD) which can wear out prematurely when securely wiped.

    Do you wish to continue ? Yes or No

    Makes sense to me, this constant action will not be good for a SSD.

    Makes absolute sense,on the other hand,my CC updates have always "wipe" checked.
    O.K. we agree on keeping that box unchecked,at least for SSD's,although HDD's wont really benefit of that particular feature.
    I usually "wipe MFT" twice a year,and gain up to some amount of MB's of space.

    MFT means Master File Table which contains index of files on NTFs drives. As computer overwrite and delete files, MFT will be filled with free space which will contains index of pointers to deleted files.

    As you see mine is greyed out so i can not even choose it. Weird that you say when updated Wipe Free Space, yours checks this by default. Assume twice a year ain't harmful. Just how beneficial is it, how many MB do you gain back ?

    Strangely,i dont have wipe MFT option in latest version,just wipe,anyway.
    On a Tera drive,I get up to 70,maybe 80 MB back,takes more than 10 hours to complete,I think its worth it,every time followed by a defragment,keeps that three year old drive in top notch condition!
