Windows 7: Command-Line vs CCleaner vs TFCbOT

Command-Line vs CCleaner vs TFCbOT

I use/run this command-line (forget where I found it, but was told it's a reliable way to free up space) and check all the boxes :

%SystemRoot%\System32\Cmd.exe /c Cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & Cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

I then run the free version of CCleaner AND follow that with an app I found here labeled "Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer".

I 'assume' all 3 do 'basically' the same thing. However, when the command-line is done there is no reporting of how much space was made free. CCleaner and TFC both report an amount. Are the latter 2 reports just yanking my chain? IF not is there more stuff still on my machine that these 3 did not get that can still get 'cleaned out'? IF SO AND all 3 are indeed freeing up space is there not a single method to to 'do it all'?

-thx

Cleanmgr is a Windows application to search and delete useless files generated by windows.

CCleaner is a program that not only search and delete useless files generated by windows but also by other programs like browsers cache.

I regularly execute (in this order)
- Cleanmgr
- CCleaner
- Also delete all in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download

Looks as though you also would desire a single method to 'do it all'.

You can create a batch file.
Every week I boot from my backup drive and I clean the working disk before the backup with a batch file.

well, it's just too bad a one-step solution is not available, but I did have hope, ey? I'm long retired (everyday is Saturday woo-hoo!) so I have the time. Still, a shortcut is most welcome.

Give SystemNinja a try and tell me if it doesn't clear out more temp files than Windows and Ccleaner.

I use both SystemNinja and Ccleaner as each finds things the other can't.

Does systemninja have a selective system restore list and delete option/function?

... similar to/just like the tool in CCleaner? (can't find it if it's in there somewhere)
