    it should and surely will erase the contents of your sandboxes if you run the eraser sw unsandboxed.
    btw, 28gb's pretty high for sb's. :eek: you should definitely get rid of the junk if there's any.

    I install quite a lot of apps for testing, but they all leave traces, that's the problem. I have so far managed to get rid of 8 GB by manually deleting files. But normally I also use disk-cleaners like CCleaner for cleaning up sandboxes.

    I'm now using Kerish Doctor and Glary Utilities.
    Don't know if they are as good as Ccleaner but I uninstalled it and I'm happy.

    Kerish is much better than CCleaner, in my opinion and can do a lot more. I don't like Glary much. It's been years since they made in significant improvements.

    If you only looking for a junk cleaner, Wise Disk Cleaner is excellent and can find more junk to clean than CCleaner.

    Good
    Thanks. I feel better.
    Glary Utilities almost always finds nothing after using Kerish.

    Still use CCleaner (from PortableApps.com, with CCEnhancer), but also WDC (which has never caused any problems for me at defaults, Common Advanced and Slimming tabs)
    and KD (but not in real-time mode, and I have 'ignored' cleanup of firewall rules created by Glasswire on my system).
    Historically (due to a free license at one point), I have Glary (with only four 'benign' 1-click maintenance options ticked), but indeed finds nothing really after that, so don't really use it anymore and inclined to get rid of it.

    You persistently push your programs, Kyle, I'll give you that. And not just in this forum.
