  • ASC 8.0 Free - Junk files fix very slow ?! One hour 8% done!!

    I decided to let ASC do a full sweep for reg errors, privacy issues, junk files, shortcut and security errors. It got through the first two reasonably quick but the junk files portion has been running for an hour and is still only at 8%. Is this normal ? Why is it taking so long ?

    Also, it says i have 18 gb of junk files, but I don't get to see what it considers junk, is this going to delete videos and stuff that I want but it considers junk ?

    Hi there,

    You can click the module to check its scan result. At the same time, you can go to Settings to check what you want to delete in Junk Files.

    Have a nice day.

      Maybe you could go to settings to decide which junk files to remove and which not to. I use ASC 8.0 free on my DaaS Windows and it works fine and it doesn't take much time to do it.

        Greetings, I see this is a few months old, however I am having a similar issue.
        I have 3.5GB of "junk" files which are not getting deleted.
        I have added almost every area for cleaning, yet still coming up with 3.5GB which contains hundreds of files.
        Choosing then 1-by1 would take weeks to do.
        Any other primary advice for cleaning this mass?

          You give too little info for us to assist you.When you say they are not getting deleted, what exactly happens. Do you get a message saying deletion failed.
          What version of ASC are you using.
          Did you try selecting only two or three sections of junk files at a time and see if it is successful.
          To err is Human. To really mess things up you need a PC.
