This will save a lot of time and protect the useful folders, files, registry keys and entire drives from being scanned.
1. Click the “Options” icon on the left side of main CCleaner window.
2. Click the “Exclude” button. This zone is used to select files, folders and registery entries you wish CCleaner to exclude from removing.
3. Click “Add” to launch the Exclude dialog, click the “File” button, browse to the file you want to remove from CCleaner operations by clicking the “Browse” button.
4. Click “OK” to finish creating your new exclusion rule. The selected file will not be scanned the next time you run a CCleaner operation.
