I want to say that you do a great job with your
softwares and if you are interested I have updated the french
localization for the latest version of CloneApp.
the string "mnuLocalizationImport=" in Hamburger menu didn't work with
any localization (German locale too) but only in english so is it
possible to correct this bug !
Is it possible too in a next release to support Unicode UTF-8 for some french lettering and other locales !
Thank you !
Thank you for helping me to realize that Gain amount was a link to click. I had not noticed that.
I do think it would be better if the amount of storage space for each item was listed next to the item. For example:
[ ] Windows Update Cleanup (1.13 GB)
[ ] Temporary Internet Files (111.3 MB)
[ ] Thumbnails (342.1 MB)
Or maybe it is best to list the number of files too:
[ ] Windows Update Cleanup (653 files, 1.13 GB)
[ ] Temporary Internet Files (191 files, 111.3 MB)
[ ] Thumbnails (40 files, 342.1 MB)
The Preview window works okay, but I don't think it as easy for the user because you do have to look for each item in the Preview or go back to the left side (listing with checkboxes) and check the items you decide to "cleanup". This is an inconvenience for me because I usually use the storage amount estimate to aid in deciding what I am going to cleanup. It doesn't really matter if I am going to clean certain items without concern for the storage space amount that will be gained. I hope that makes sense.
Currently, there are missing items in the Preview. Notice in my screenshot that Previous Windows Installation(s), DNS Cache, Print Queue, and other items are not listed in the Preview window. Everything on the left side (with checkboxes) should be listed in the Preview. If you cannot calculate the amount of storage space to be freed/gained, then you should say "Preview was skipped for performance reasons" or something.
Another problem with this current implementation is the Preview does not show any "Gain" estimate for "+ more" items (Google Chrome Cache, Microsoft Edge Cache, etc.) It would be good to know how much storage space these items are using and one might then decide to go ahead and "cleanup" some of these.
Thank you very much for all of your work and time on Cleanmgr+. Please do not let my constructive criticism discourage you. I simply want Cleanmgr+ to be the best for me and everyone else and I want to use it. I will gladly donate some money as well, especially once the program is a bit more polished.
Have a great remaining weekend.
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.
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.

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!
