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...

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 W7 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
