how is system "garbage" calculated?
« on: November 11, 2021, 04:50:07 PM »
I use Ccleaner for eliminating unneeded files. Today it reported 110 MB of garbage (my version is Swedish, I'm not sure if garbage is the correct word in computerspeak). Avast reports 11 GB! How does it calculate this? Where does it find that amount of garbage after a Ccleaner cleanup?
