Changes in Wipe 2307:
- Added several new options to the Windows OS section. They are not selected by default, so you will need to check these zones manually in order to clean these new areas. Most users don’t need these options selected, however, we discovered that cached files there may stay for years without any changes, wasting system resources.
Changes in Wipe 2306:
- Added more than 100 new zones for cleanup. If you have some supported app installed on your computer, our “Wipe” will detect it and clean any garbage in it. Total number of supported zones: 4740
- Our app will no longer collect technical information about your computer. All API which were related to data collection were removed from the app starting this release. Technical information is related to computer only, like how many processors you have or what is the screen resolution of your display.
