Question about "Clean All Trace"

Post by Raa'Kaan » Fri May 29, 2015 4:35 pm

Waaaaay back when I first started using SlimBrowser, the "Clean All Trace" seemed to work perfectly, and in fact, one of the main features back then that drew me in.

More specifically, I refer to the cleaning of hard drive cache or temporary internet files.

As IE versions progressed, 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 they started getting trickier about where on our hard drives they stashed the temp files. Particularly from 9 on, but 10 and 11 really buried the cache deep in ...

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\ManyRandom FolderNames

... if I'm not mistaken, this is at least the main brunt of the IE temp file storage. There are other little goodies buried elsewhere nowadays.

To my point...

I've noticed for a while that some temp files were no longer being cleaned with the Clean All Trace button.

Today I tried an experiment and opened my temp folder and clicked "Clean All Trace" and I did not notice a single file being removed.

Next, I ran Glary's Utility and it removed every file within the individual random named direcctories, but left the directories. That's fine, just manually delete the folders if I so choose...

More to my point, and question ...

I looked all through the settings and menus and could not find any method of manually adding Clean All Trace locations.

Is there a nifty sbrowser.ini hack to edit preferences for adding folders to clean temp files or should I post this in the Feature Request forum to be added to a menu option or is this a known issue that just hasn't been looked at in a few IE version temp folder location changes?

Or, of course, the obvious and I'm completely missing it right in front of my eyes?
