Windows 7: Advanced Disk Cleanup Question

Advanced Disk Cleanup Question

Hi i have been following this great guide to access Advanced Disk Cleanup in Win 7 :-

Advanced Disk Cleanup - Create Shortcuts Without A Batch File!

it's really good but i just wanted to clear up 2 things :-

1. these shortcuts route to C:\ right, system disk c. what if i have additional drives with installed programs on them, or separate raid disks? do i need to create separate shortcuts to clean those locations, or does this feature in windows only specifically target redundant files from your system disk. ie. the targeted files won't exist on non-system disks anyway.

2. the list of items you check in the Configure Advanced Disk Cleaner shortcut (ie. cleanmgr.exe /sagesetup), do they already cover standard items from the normal properties>disk cleanup, or do i need to perform both standard cleanup & advanced cleanup if i ever wanted to cover everything?

Thanks. quite an OCD and stupid post i know, but i just want to see the answers for peace of mind hehe

I only ever run the Extended Disk Cleanup, normally at least a couple of times a week, among other things.
You will see that the extended incudes the standard.
You can check this by running them both together, and having the items that can be cleaned boxes next to each other.

I hope this helps!

thanks. what about the other drives? does their recycle bins and/or other items (if any) get cleaned too? personally i have only seen recycle bin under their cleanup, or is this referring to the one recycle bin on system disk? so when i run cleanup, all stuffs deleted from all drives get cleaned out at same time?

Disk Cleanup
Suddenly my Disk Cleanup will not start using Disk Cleanup.exe. I now have to go to Start>Run>cleanmgr to get it to start and that won't pin to the Start Menu which is where I want it. Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Uhh, Disk Cleanup Question...
Every time I run the Disk Cleanup tool I always shows "Debug Dump Files" as being 620MB, even if I run Disk Cleanup twice in a row it always shows up. It didn't used to do that why would it now?
