A fullscan scans the selected location, including all subfolders and all files regardless of type, size or date (except hidden and system files).
A fullscan can be started in three different ways:
From the menubar
Open the logfile and view its content
By not selecting any criterias on the settings screen
('Scan subfolders?' needs to be checked)
- By rightclicking and selecting ''Run fullscan of this folder' in the treeview
CleanMyFolder then scans the location looking for files matching your criterias.
The criterias/options for scanning is:
- Scanning subfolders
This is mostly for security reasons and to avoid possible errors.
That being said, it's not recommended to delete or move files you are unsure of.
Moving or deleting folders/files in the System32 folder, not a good idea!
