Hi, I just discovered this nice little piece of very useful software CloneApp. Really good job !

I tried to create new plug-ins, but these applications are not recognised as "installed".
Did I do something wrong in the .plg configuration files ?

Example for sTabLauncher :
Description=Backup sTabLauncher Configuration et Onglets


DosBox plug-in
sTabLauncher plug-in

Thanks a lot, Belim.
Works perfect ! :)

please use for DosBox the BackupKey
instead of %AppData%\Local\DOSBox

Do the same for sTabLauncher. The directory %AppData%\Local\ doesn't exist
By using the variable %AppData% you will get AppData\Roaming
and by using %LocalAppData% you get AppData\Local

BUG: If an imported script isn't at the last position of the list, it doesn't have the right description. (Cleanmgr+)

Hi Aaron,

unfortunately i couldn't reproduce this bug.

Trying to restore my Windows 10 settings in a new computer using CloneApp. It keeps asking me for the cloneapp2.ini file, I locate it, CloneApp opens it (apparently), then asks me for the file again which has now disappeared from the folder. I 'feed' CloneApp another copy of the cloneapp2.ini file and the loop starts again... Any suggestions, anybody?

I had the same issue. I saved the backup to an external drive e:\ . On the machine I wanted to restore the backup, the external drive had the letter d:\. So I needed to change the ClonePath in the cloneapp2.ini from e to d, but be careful after I clicked restore the cloneapp started instantly restoring apps even those which are not installed. I had no chance to deselect them and now my system is full of garbage.
In my opinion the cloneapp has some mayor flaws. Saving the absolute path instead of the relative makes not much sense and also restoring non existing applications or at least asking for confirmation is a no go.

are you using the latest CloneApp version? If you are trying to restore the Backup on a remote machine, with different Windows user (as with which the backup was made), please take a look at the following FAQ entry

Having the exact same issue, can someone help us out? There is obviously something wrong here on a very fundamental level...

Excellent !!! Simply Excellent. Thanks For Cleanmgr+. It will definitely be my new go to application. I hope plugins with be added in the future for other major applications. It's good enough in my opinion to replace CCleaner on my system. 5 Stars all the way. I will be spreading the word about Cleanmgr+ .

I have run some more test and it looks like now the program is NOT deleting the files in the download folder. I did not change any of the settings from the previous version. After have the problem, I deleted all the files from the Cleanmgr+ directory and started from scratch. Might be something to look at.

Hi Rich,

I'm glad it wasn't any more than that. Question!
Are you talking about the Downloaded Program files directory in the Windows root dir? or the Downloads directory in the User Profile?

Enjoy the rest of the weekend

Careful with the new version, Cleanmgr+ V1.1.0.400. The application wipes out the "Download Program Files" even though the box is NOT checked.Sad

are you maybe using the windata.ini (in \bin\ directory of Cleanmgr+) from the previous v1.0.4?

I've added the following notice to the changelog of v1.1
Please also use ONLY the latest windata.ini (in \bin\ directory) shipped with this Version of Cleanmgr+. The windata.ini from older versions is NOT compatible with v1.1 of Cleanmgr+

Hi! I would love it someone could clear this up for me: the "windows component store" option will delete the entire winsxs folder, rendering the windows installation pretty much useless. Why is this optin even present??? it can do great harm.

Hi Jorge,

the size calculation and recommendation whether you should clean/resize the Windows Component Store is done by Windows and the command-line utility DISM.

If the Preview of "Windows Component Store" is telling you that a cleanup is not recommended, then you are on the safe side.

"the reported freeable space for the winsxs item in cleanmgr+ is exactly the size of the entire WinSxS folder". This would mean, that a cleanup has already been done and could not been executed again even if you run it in Cleanmgr+.

Hi! Thanks for the reply.
Where did i get it? easy, after analyzing to see how much space I could free, the reported freeable space for the winsxs item in cleanmgr+ is exactly the size of the entire WinSxS folder, which means that cleanmgr+ would delete the whole folder...

Hi Jorge,

sry, for the late reply, but this isn't always a full-time job for me.

Where do you have this Info "windows component store" option will delete the entire winsxs folder?
This isn't an information provided by Cleanmgr+.

In short, Winsxs, which stands for ‘Windows Side By Side’, is Windows native assembly cache. Libraries which are being by multiple applications are stored there. The WinSxS folder, stores multiple copies of dll, exe and other system files in order to let multiple applications run in Windows without any compatibility problem.

Cleanmgr+ does NOT delete this folder (this is NOT possible!) Therefore is uses a command line option for DISM.exe, /AnalyzeComponentStore and /StartComponentCleanup . Running this command, will analyze the WinSxS folder and tell you whether a Component Store Cleanup is recommended or not.

I hope this helps at least a little bit.

Kind regards from Germany

Thanks for ignoring me completely.

Hi, Belim.

I just noticed that if you close Cleanmgr+ and  launch it again that the +more items are remembered.  That makes the situation better.  So, apparently, once you run the "Check installed scripts" under the +, the ones that are found are remembered unless/until you run the "Check installed scripts" again.  That is good.

Initially, how to get the +more items to have the "space to gain" calculated is still not intuitive.  That is still a hurdle I think you need to address.

Maybe the option under the + should say:

   "Check which +more scripts are installed"


   "Check which +more scripts your Windows account is using"

See my message below for other thoughts.

Hi, Belim.

Thank you for the message.  I was able to get Cleanmgr+ to calculate the "space to gain" for those +more items.  ;-)

As you know, this probably isn't intuitive or easy to figure out.  What you have currently works, but I wouldn't necessarily expect most users to figure out how to have Cleanmgr+ calculate the "space to gain" for the +more items.

For the items under the Disk Cleanup tab, the "space to gain" is calculated automatically if you click on the ____ link after gain >.  So, it makes sense that if you go to the +more tab and click the ____ link after gain >, then Cleanmgr+ would calculate the "space to gain" for the +more items.

Also, if "space to gain" has been calculated for the Disk Cleanup tab or the +more items already while Cleanmgr+ is open, then it would be nice if those results were remembered despite switching between the Disk Cleanup tab and the +more tab.  Currently, I can calculate "space to gain" for the Disk Cleanup tab and then for the +more items, but then if I go back to the Disk Cleanup tab, the "space to gain" results are gone and I have to calculate them again. 

Some users might leave Cleanmgr+ open for an hour or two or even longer.  In those cases, perhaps the "space to gain" results should be re-calculated.  However, it would be nice if the results were remembered for each tab for at least for a few minutes or until the ____ link after gain > is clicked again.  If you update Cleanmgr+ so that the +more items can also be calculated manually using the ____ link after gain >, then it would be no big deal for a user to re-calcuate "space to gain" for the Disk Cleanup or +more items if they wanted to.  But, the user might prefer the results to be remembered if/when switching between tabs.

Thank you for all of your work and effort on Cleanmgr+.  ;-)

Hi, Belim.

In the release notes for v1.0.3.249, you mention: 

"Added function to calculate the "space to gain" in "+more/Scripts" tab (this is optional and the space is automatically calculated after hitting the "+more" tab)"

I don't see how to enable this optional function.  I would like to test it.

Hello 0.MRG,

Yes that's true :) Just switch to the +more tab and the calculation runs automatically. Of course, you must have previously pre-check some clean-up items. I would recommend using the "Check installed scripts" function in the main menu > "+"

Cleanmgr+ will report in the status label something like "You can free up + more xxx MB of disk space by cleaning up these items" To refresh the calculation just hit the "+ more" tab again.

I hope I have now a slightly happier user :)

Have a good day
