    Default ccleaner and SSDs

    I've always been a huge fan of ccleaner in my old conventional hard drives....my question is.....can I still use ccleaner all the time in my new SSD without any negative effects?? I know the more use the SSD gets....eventually it will slow....will all the extra "ccleaning" make this worse??

    I use CCleaner often on my SSD. I don't see how it can be detrimental as long as you're not using the wipe free space option. All it does is delete files, and I don't see how that can be bad for the SSD.

    I too use it regularly on my M4. I'm sure there is no negative effects.

    no effects. the amount of increased writes that it would create would impact your ssd as much as throwing a coin onto the earth changes it's path in space.

    I use cccleaner and run it every time before I either shut down my M14X or leave it overnight to collect garbage. I am using Google Chrome and cccleaner cleans about 300-500 Mb of 'browsing cache' files every day. The highest size I have seen was 1.2 Gigs after streaming a few movies online.

    However, I started using RAMDISK and put Google Chrome cache on my RAM. Browser is much faster now, there are no unnecessary writes to SSD and using CCCleaner finds 2 to 3 (!) Mb on my SSD after a long session of browsing.

    no. i mean, every single bit that gets written changes the live of the ssd. but ccleaner does not do much to a disk actually, ergo the impact is so tiny you'll never notice it.
