Is it safe to use tools like ccleaner on an SSD?

hi, I have just got myself an SSD, I know it is unwise to defrag it but can I use tools like ccleaner without damaging/harming it?

Thanks,

Yes. It's safe. However it's not recommended to use CC's registry cleaner module...

My advice is to leave any registry cleaner well alone...

Hi there
Why on EARTH would you need to CCLEANER your machine --if your machine is that bad that you feel a need to do this then I would re-install Windows 7 again from scratch on your nice new SSD and add applications as and when you need them.

Cheers

er, jimbo - running ccleaner to get rid of some crap is slightly less time consuming than reinstalling the whole OS and software.

I have use Ccleaner on my ssd without any problems. I do not use any registry cleaner. IMHO if one doesn't keep a ssd clean it will fill up with a lot of junk very quickly. Due to the small size of most ssd's it doesn't take long.

Same here with my Intel 320 SSD for almost a year now. Thanks to CCleaner there's still < 20GB on the drive.

It's safe but unless you know what to delete and what not to delete, it's probably best to not use registry cleaners
