How to point to other than drive C: for KCleaner?

Post by peterblaise » Sat Dec 22, 2012 1:50 pm

So, of course I want to clean my backup sets that are on external hard drives, but how can I point the excellent KCleaner to any drive letter of my choice instead of only to the default boot drive C:? Thanks.

... actually, I wish I could point KCleaner to any directory, with or without subdirectories included as a choice.

I routinely "clone" an old drive to C:\Backup\old-drive-data\*.* or to an external drive D:\Backup\old-drive-data\*.* when replacing a failing or crashed drive, and while retrieving serial numbers and data, who needs all the temp stuff? But I only want to kill it in the particular directory that I've already searched through, not the entire drive, and I don't want to have to un-check the results the rest of a drive just to limit the results to my one target directory (which I have to do now).

For instance, I might have C:\Backup\recover-try-1 and C:\Backup\recovery-try-2 and so on, and after finding what I need from each, I'd like to clean out the temp stuff to make space on the new drive and reduce search and virus scan delays, but not clean, say, C:\Backup\recovery-try-3 yet because I'm still scouring the debris in that directory for useful stuff.

Sadly this happens all the time, but your cleaner could be really useful as a specific-purpose cleanup tool if it were more "aimable" -- thanks!
