    @privazer team.

    Thanks very much for the shellbag inclusion and congratulations for making me donate, long overdue I am sorry to say.

    However, I have noticed that when deleting directories using the right mouse click the shellbags do not always get deleted. My conclusion suggests that if there are sub directories all shellbags for the subs and parent are not deleted. Could you please investigate/advise,

    Hello: can there be consideration for making PrivaZer go into the System tray upon completion of say: right-click clean of recycle bin OPTIONAL? My system is slightly more unstable with about 1% greater CPU usage if this is going into the tray. I don't need PrivaZer to always be running in the background, just on-demand. If there is already an option, please tell but I looked among the advanced settings and nothing seemed applicable.

    Thanks!

    @liba,
    yes PrivaZer cleans the slack space of files.

    @plat1098,
    see here, I think this is what you need "close when completed" :

    Hello.

    Yes, this "close when completed" box was already checked. If one Xs out of PrivaZer, it should be closed all the way, right? Since you can't post any videos here, I made one of the question at hand and posted it at Malwaretips. Hopefully it's a legit issue and I don't get embarrassed like usual....:cautious:

    Sorry, the PrivaZer icon is still going into the System tray. In this scenario, I am canceling the request to clean a bunch of files in AppData. So, it's not confined to just the Recycle Bin.

    Also, as a feature request, is it possible for PrivaZer to clean the javascript files accumulated by Opera browser in AppData? The path would be: user \ AppData \ Roaming \ Opera Software \ Opera Stable \ Code Cache \ js

    I deleted a couple-hundred MB's worth from there w/PrivaZer with no apparent ill effects on Opera. I also read on the Opera forum that this can be done. Not sure if it's a privacy issue, though.

    https://forums.opera.com/topic/3762...-software-opera-stable-code-cache-js-folder/4

    Thanks a lot. :)

    @liba,
    some traces of the MFT could still be found in the free space. Th'at's why.
    We will make it possible for users to choose what they want, allowing them to only clean the MFT if they like, as you suggest it
    (planned in the next release of PrivaZer)

    @plat1098,
    you are right, recycle bin, secure deletion of files or directories are managed through a child window.
    We will improve this behavior.

    Great, thanks, The_PrivaZer_Team and I apologize for not having been more complete from the beginning. This is not my vocation. Basically, it's via the right-click, from the context menu, that window.

    :)

    Hello.

    PrivaZer seemed to have missed the cleanup of KB 4551762? It is or was set to run the Disk Cleanup especially for this purpose. Anyone else experienced this? I happened to check Storage settings after I ran PrivaZer and here is a snip. Not a big deal, ultimately because it's easily removed manually.

    I cannot get the hang of shellbag deletion on the right mouse click and delete without trace, it doesn,t seem to do the job but maybe I have missunderstood
    I have set a test directory with two subs one of which has a file. shell bag analysis shows these.
    Screenshot (44).png

    I then delete the two sub directories successfully
    Screenshot (45).png

    rerun shellbag and they are still there ---- why?
