If you move the FF cache and path the %TEMP% %TMP% environment variables into a virtual ramdisk you'll boost your system speed (always interesting) and spare the SSD those daily 100MB (not really a problem but welcomed). As a bonus if you ever forget to run CCleaner the temp files will be automatically erradicated when the virtual ramdisk dematerializes after shutdown.


Then if you use the portable version of Firefox and place it entirely in ramdisk your browsing will get another boost and your SSD will be spared a ton of writes (while browsing FF is continuously writing into disk):

Buddy: Dude, bro, u should like totally not run those progz on ur SSD cuz it's like bad and stuff for the life of it! DERP

Me: Let's pretend for a minute that I do not know more than you do about all things in life. If a company released an SSD that could be taken down from a nightly Ccleaner session removing 100 MB, then nobody would buy SSDs. It would take 5+ years for this to have an effect. You know not what you speak my friend.

So yeah, this was our argument verbatim... I actually know as much about SSDs as any DIY PC person. I am not an expert, but I know how stuff works for the most part. I know for a fact that SSDs would not have survived if they were this delicate. So can someone please back me up? Or is this one of those ultra rare times when I am wrong? I like cleaning my temp files and my internet cache, cookies, ect. Clearing cookies once in a while is actually safe because who knows what epic porn sites the other guy... ... was looking at on my PC.

And he also wants me to disable the recycle bin and I like the recycle bin because I empty it once a week and it allows me to browse my files I am about to permanently remove. I know that some picky users say disable it but IMO it is a non issue because I am not deleting 10GB of files a day. And I am not looking to keep this SSD for the next 15 years.

You say its fine, your buddy says its bad, I say you're right but who gives a rats ass. Nightly is a bit ridiculous.

Did you disable that in Settings?

^ This is important. Unless we are specifically looking for it, 'Options' => 'Settings' => 'Wipe Free Space drives' should be unticked or SSDs will get unnecesary wear.

Like always parces is detail to the bone thumb.gif
parsec man ,I would like to speak to you in person ,you know like face to face about GB-ts,MDX 400mhz and when we would hit 1ghz,will that help 4k reads?is there any chance you are coming to Hvar biggrin.gif ?

Igor, you're back! I was wondering where you were hiding? Fishing this time of year?

I'd love to go to Croatia, but I'd be a little worried about all the nonsense going on with Putin and Ukraine. Of course if things really got bad, no place would be safe. Be careful and safe where you are!

Yes, the free space cleaner of CCleaner is enabled by default, but only runs when you use the Drive Wiper tool, thank Gawd! That is, at least for SSD users. It is not a Secure Erase for SSDs.

Parsec you are scaring my guests without reason.
So finally I got you somewhere where you are not so good,geopolitics.
Don't worry about Putin and Ukraine.You are watching to many news. For us Ukraine is on other continent. Reservations for this summer are just as usual English,German,Americans.We had last summer 40% guests from America.
I will send you a link so you can see our apartments. In fact I will post them here,is that against the forum rule?:
Apartments Novak Ciko
If you want to read what happened with Ukraine and Putin but something completely neutral(I don't know will this translation be good)O and don't forget while you reading text,Croatia is part of European Union and strategic partner with USA and Croatia soldiers are also in Afghanistan. News paper that I taking this text from are private ,neutral and highly European minded.They reveal a great deception of Croatian Prime Minister,he is now at jail.Prime Minister at us is like president at you. :

I just installed CCleaner on a new build and this option was disabled by default.
