II. Details of Parameter
The section below from 1 to 6 are mandatory.

1, [Root7]
    The user must start from the 7th node and go on with 8, 9, etc. The first 6 are already in use.

2, Name= Name of the node.
    This is used to define following cleaning rules. It will not be displayed on WDC interface.

3, Type= Type of the node

The section below is to customize the items needed cleaning.

12, Item0=||
It is to customize the items needed cleaning.
Please notice that the serial number must also start from 0 and marked as item0, item1…
     1) Types
          File = files
          RegKey = registry key
          RegValue = registry value
          SQL = sqlite database
          Lnk = shortcut

     2) Scanning List
         This section varies in accordance with the Types section.
         A. File
             Write in the paths needed scanning.
             e.g.
             %Appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies
             Use semicolons ( ;) to separate different paths, within which the environment variables supported can be included.

 

         B. RegKey
             Write in the registry path needed scanning. Semicolons are used to separate the paths.
             e.g.
             HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing\NewTabPage

 

          C. RegValue
             Write in the registry path needed scanning. Semicolons are used to separate the paths.

 

          D. SQL
             Write in the complete path of the database file.
             e.g.
             %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cookies   //Cookies here is a file without suffixes, not a directory.

           E. Lnk
              Write in the paths needed scanning.

 

      3) Filters and Options
          This section also varies in accordance with the Types section.
           A. File
               Filter= Filter criteria, Wildcard is supported here. (e.g. *.dat). Semicolon is used to separate multiple criteria here. (e.g. Filter=*.txt;*.dat) This criterion is mandatory.
                FindInSubFolder=1 or 0       // 1: to search in subdirectory;
                                                                    0: not to search in subdirectory.
                RemoveSubFolder=1 or 0     //1: to delete subdirectory;
                                                                    0: not to delete subdirectory.
                Exclude=Exclusion criteria, to define the exclusion type. (e.g. *.dat) The exclusion file name can also be written in directly.      Semicolon is used to separate multiple criteria here.
                 Pathmatch= regular expression, use regular expressions to describe similar path. If is valid, then it will combine (Pathmatch) value to as full scanning path.

                 E.g.
                 Item0=File|%Internet_Cache%|(Filter=*.*)(FindInSubFolder=1)(RemoveSubFolder=1)(Exclude=index.dat;desktop.ini;suggestedsites.dat)
                 Item6=File|%LocalAppData%\Yandex\YandexBrowser\UserData|(Filter=*.*)(FindInSubFolder=1)(RemoveSubFolder=1)(Exclude=*.db)(PathMatch=User Data\\Profile \d\\databases)

 

            B. RegKey
                 RegExpr= regular expression, Use regular expressions to filter qualified keys.
                 FindInSubKey= 1 or 0      //1: search sub key;
                                                                0: not to search sub key.
                 ShowValues= 1 or 0        // 1: display the value under the key specified;
                                                                0: not to display the value under the key specified.
                 RemoveSelf=1 or 0          //1: delete itself;
                                                               0: not to delete itself.
                 E.g.
                 Item0=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RunMRU|(FindInSubKey=1)

 

             C. RegValue
                  RegExpr= regular expression, Use regular expressions to filter qualified keys.
                  FindInSubKey=1 or 0      //1: search sub key;
                                                                0: not to search sub key.
                  E.g.
                  Item0=RegValue|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify|(ValueList=IconStreams;PastIconsStream)

 

             D. SQL
                 TableName= the table needed query (This item is must be required.)
                 Condition= SQL sentence (It is optional.)
                 E.g.
                 Item0=SQL|%LOCAL_APPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cookies|(TableName=cookies)

I am not a complete dummy but I have to admit I have not a clue how to carry out the above procedure and would appreciate some help,

Preferably step by step instructions!

And afterwards, hopefully, I will have learned something new,

I installed WDC 8.0.2.572 and I've tried to make usercustom.ini (I'm using windows 8.1).
These was the steps I've done:
1) created UserCustom.ini
2) opened and filled with:

[Root7]
Name=xilolee
Type=trash
TranName=xilolee
DefaultName=xilolee
Image=6

After that, I used the example in the second message:

 

[OtherApps4]
TranName=AcrobatReader
DefaultName=Acrobat Reader
Exists=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader(reg)
Recommended=1
Item0=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\1.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item1=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\2.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item2=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\3.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item3=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\4.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item4=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\5.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item5=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item6=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item7=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item8=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item9=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\10.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item10=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\11.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item11=RegKey|HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\11.0\CompoundDocs\cStoredBinder|(FindInSubKey=1)
Item12=File|%local_appdata%\Adobe\Acrobat\7.0\Cache\Search70;%local_appdata%\Adobe\Acrobat\8.0\Cache\Search80;%Local_AppData%\Adobe\Acrobat\9.0\Cache\Search;%LOCAL_APPDATA_LOW%\Adobe\Acrobat\9.0\Search;%Local_AppData%\Adobe\Acrobat\10.0\Cache\Search;%LOCAL_APPDATA_LOW%\Adobe\Acrobat\10.0\Search;%Local_AppData%\Adobe\Acrobat\11.0\Cache\Search;%LOCAL_APPDATA_LOW%\Adobe\Acrobat\11.0\Search|(Filter=*.*)(FindInSubFolder=0)(RemoveSubFolder=0)
Item13=File|%ProgramFiles%\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader;%ProgramFiles%\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\Updater;%ProgramFiles%\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\plug_ins;%PROGRAM_FILESX86\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader;%PROGRAM_FILESX86\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\Updater;%PROGRAM_FILESX86\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\plug_ins|(Filter=*.bak)(FindInSubFolder=0)(RemoveSubFolder=0)

 


And after that, I added this:

[OtherApps300]
TranName=thumbs
DefaultName=thumbs
Recommended=1
Item0=File|c:\|(Filter=thumbs.db)(FindInSubFolder=1)

(I have tried both, only the first, only the second)

3) saved the file
4) opened WDC 8.0 and I saw my custom setting was greyed (both in english and italian languages):

2extt9j.jpg

Other issues:
- when I use italian language, checks for update remains check for updates, i.e. it is not translated to Controlla aggiornamenti; facebook, twitter and mail balloon tips are not translated too (I don't use them, but...):
 
2hqro7t.jpg

- after I created a portable version (that I prefer) and opened, I can't close WDC 8.0 from the taskbar but I have to close it from the X in the upper-right corner... I.e., if I do a right-click on WDC on the taskbar, it will not show the menu that usually appears (with every program); the following picture shows the correct behaviour of the installed version of WDC 8.0:

Hi xilolee,

1, About the custom settings was gray.

    Make sure you installed this software Acrobat Reader (Not Adobe Reader)

 

2, About the translations.

    Please check language files. Open Italian.ini ,

  Find out  [Translation] , then add following
   FrmWDC.btnupdate.caption=Checks for update
   FrmWDC.btnfacebook.hint=Follow us on facebook
   FrmWDC.btntwitter.hint=Follow us on Twitter
   FrmWDC.btnemail.hint=Share it to your friends

  Find out [Area] , then add following
   UserDefine=User custom cleanup rules

 

 You can translate text after symbol ' = ' to Italian, then save file.

 

3, Sorry, I don't find out this problem. Please try again.

Hello all,

 

This customization technique via an ini file is not suited for most users. Moreover, it could lead to a disater for those untrained individuals who attempt to deploy it. This is definitely a step in the wrong direction IMHO. Moreover, this ini file will require continual updating based on the installed program changes. For example, what happens if a specific program provides a major update and moves things around? If so, how is one supposed to know how to tailor this new ini file to clean the new locations properly? Now, since there are already programs that attempt such remedial actions, and since they only require a checkbox to be ticked, I would say they are well ahead of this ini initiative; however, even those programs fail frequently because it is difficult to keep up with all the popular program rewrites and updates. I have used CCxxxxxxx in the past and it has continually broken unique programs due to specific programs being updated and the cleaner program lagging behind (or not knowing about) the updated program locations. Now, if programmers can't keep up with the changes, do you think the average user will succeed? Again, this is not a good idea IMHO.

1) It was just a try... Anyway it doesn't work with these simplier settings:

 

[OtherApps300]
TranName=thumbs
DefaultName=thumbs
Recommended=1
Item0=File|c:\|(Filter=thumbs.db)(FindInSubFolder=1)

Just to understand how it works...

2) I have translated them in this way (and now it shows the italian strings):

FrmWDC.btnupdate.caption=Controlla aggiornamenti
FrmWDC.btnfacebook.hint=Seguici su facebook
FrmWDC.btntwitter.hint=Seguici su Twitter
FrmWDC.btnemail.hint=Comunicalo ai tuoi amici

3) Now it works :blink:

Maybe doesn't it work just after the creation?

Hello xilolee,

 

As demonstrated by your own skilled testing, this beta is not for the untrained and/or faint of heart. Now, I normally don't make such profound statements but I think this beta really needs to remain a beta for quite a while because I think its introduction into the GA release would turn an already stable product into an unsafe nightmare for most of us. I have always touted the Wise Product Line as being the best in the areas of safety and reliability; however, if this goes GA, I will no longer be able to make such statements going forward. For the life of me, I don't understand why the Wise Development Team would ever introduce such a difficult option that is extremely dangerous (in untrained hands). Moreover, I just talked to Santa and he doesn't like the idea either!

 

Happy holidays to all,

Hi xilolee,

 

The option to use it or not was quite clear from the beginning; however, my fear is that many incapable users will attempt to use it and fail miserably. You know the old saying "it was curiosity that killed the cat?" Well, that saying certainly applies here.

 

Season's greetings,

And in the worse case scenario, the uninformed / untrained (?unwashed?) can always uninstall the program and then reinstall a correctly working copy. So what's not to like about having options? This isn't life and death after all.

After a lot of tries, I've understood how it works:
1) Open notepad.exe and save the file as UserCustom.ini (uppercase or lowercase doesn't matter).
The file could be saved with ANSI or unicode encodings (it seems it doesn't matter, but I'm using the simple latin alphabet).
2) Create the rule that you desire... As an example (very simple), let's say I want to delete the zip files inside the wise care 365 folder:

[Root7]
Name=wc365
Type=Trash
DefaultName=Wise Care ThreeHundredSixtyFive
Image=5
[wc3650]
DefaultName=Delete zip files
Recommended=1
Item0=File|%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Applicazioni\Programmi portable di WISE CLEANER\Wise Care 365|(Filter=*.zip)

The codes/lines under [Root7] will create a new section (or node) named wc365, it will be under the trash useless files in computer, the name displayed will be Wise Care ThreeHundredSixtyFive and it will use the internet icon (the globe).
The codes/lines under [wc3650], that is derived from the Name under the new root, will create the cleaning rules.
In this case, the first rule is [wc3650]... There aren't other rules, but the second would be [wc3651], the third [wc3652], and so forth.
The name of the cleaning rule will be Delete zip files.
The recommended line will have effect when you click the recommended link in the common cleaner at bottom-left corner.
Item0 will search *.zip, the third parameter, File(s), the first parameter, inside the folder %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Applicazioni\Programmi portable di WISE CLEANER\Wise Care 365, the second parameter.
3) Finally, save the file (again) and close it.

post-11233-0-94234900-1391224725_thumb.jpg

4) (it's quite improbable, but...) Now let's say I want it in my own Language (yes, I could have done it in the first place), because I want to have that rule in both languages; I'll have to add the TranName(s) to the ini file, and will have to save it:

[Root7]
Name=wc365
Type=Trash
TranName=wc365
DefaultName=Wise Care ThreeHundredSixtyFive
Image=5
[wc3650]
TranName=DZF
DefaultName=Delete zip files
Recommended=1
Item0=File|%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Applicazioni\Programmi portable di WISE CLEANER\Wise Care 365|(Filter=*.zip)

5) Now I must open the english.ini and italian.ini files, inside the languages folder of WDC, adding two lines under the [Area] section, but anyway before the [Type] section:

(extracted from) ITALIAN.INI
FragmentedRate=Frammentazione

[Area]
wc365=Cura Saggia TrecentoSessantaCinque
DZF=Cancellazione file zip
IEHistory=Cronologia attiva di Microsoft Internet Explorer
(extracted from) ENGLISH.INI
FragmentedRate=Fragmentation

[Area]
wc365=Wise Care ThreeHundredSixtyFive
DZF=Delete zip files
UserDefine=User custom cleanup rules

Because if I modify only the italian file, when I'll switch to english the rules will remain with the italian name.

Your description of a worse-case-scenario is not accurate; in that, a worst-case-scenario would actually be where one configures the options to clean an area that should not be cleaned and destroys the operating system; thereby, necessitating a complete reinstall of the OS and an uninstall and reinstall of this program will not fix the damage done.

 

Hi guys,

Wise Disk Cleaner 8.0 Custom Configuration is just for Advanced users.

We don't recommended basic users to try this.

If you really want to try this function, please make a system restore point, or backup system, then try this function.

Agreed! Only for very advanced users; period! In fact, this is one of the most complexed options I've ever encountered!

 

After a lot of tries, I've understood how it works:

1) Open notepad.exe and save the file as UserCustom.ini (uppercase or lowercase doesn't matter).

The file could be saved with ANSI or unicode encodings (it seems it doesn't matter, but I'm using the simple latin alphabet).

2) Create the rule that you desire... As an example (very simple), let's say I want to delete the zip files inside the wise care 365 folder:

[Root7]
Name=wc365
Type=Trash
DefaultName=Wise Care ThreeHundredSixtyFive
Image=5
[wc3650]
DefaultName=Delete zip files
Recommended=1
Item0=File|%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Applicazioni\Programmi portable di WISE CLEANER\Wise Care 365|(Filter=*.zip)

The codes/lines under [Root7] will create a new section (or node) named wc365, it will be under the trash useless files in computer, the name displayed will be Wise Care ThreeHundredSixtyFive and it will use the internet icon (the globe).

The codes/lines under [wc3650], that is derived from the Name under the new root, will create the cleaning rules.

In this case, the first rule is [wc3650]... There aren't other rules, but the second would be [wc3651], the third [wc3652], and so forth.

The name of the cleaning rule will be Delete zip files.

The recommended line will have effect when you click the recommended link in the common cleaner at bottom-left corner.

Item0 will search *.zip, the third parameter, File(s), the first parameter, inside the folder %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Applicazioni\Programmi portable di WISE CLEANER\Wise Care 365, the second parameter.

3) Finally, save the file (again) and close it.

4) (it's quite improbable, but...) Now let's say I want it in my own Language (yes, I could have done it in the first place), because I want to have that rule in both languages; I'll have to add the TranName(s) to the ini file, and will have to save it:

[Root7]
Name=wc365
Type=Trash
TranName=wc365
DefaultName=Wise Care ThreeHundredSixtyFive
Image=5
[wc3650]
TranName=DZF
DefaultName=Delete zip files
Recommended=1
Item0=File|%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Applicazioni\Programmi portable di WISE CLEANER\Wise Care 365|(Filter=*.zip)

5) Now I must open the english.ini and italian.ini files, inside the languages folder of WDC, adding two lines under the [Area] section, but anyway before the [Type] section:

(extracted from) ITALIAN.INI
FragmentedRate=Frammentazione

[Area]
wc365=Cura Saggia TrecentoSessantaCinque
DZF=Cancellazione file zip
IEHistory=Cronologia attiva di Microsoft Internet Explorer
(extracted from) ENGLISH.INI
FragmentedRate=Fragmentation

[Area]
wc365=Wise Care ThreeHundredSixtyFive
DZF=Delete zip files
UserDefine=User custom cleanup rules

Because if I modify only the italian file, when I'll switch to english the rules will remain with the italian name.

Hope this helps! (advanced, and not so advanced, users)

Hi Xixolee! Glad you finally figured it out and thanks for sharing your success. Again, all your efforts seem to indicate this optional feature should not be used by anyone other than an advanced user IMHO.

Hi again xilolee,

 

I personally consider you to be an advanced user and the fact that it took you a few tries to figure it out clearly indicates this should not be attempted by all.

 

Moreover, you said:

the task is (quite) easy

 

My response to the above is: Yes, after you put forth some time and effort to figure it out.

 

IMHO, I just feel it is important to emphasize that one could get into trouble if they don't know what they are doing with this option and I'll leave it at that.

 

Regards,

Hi!
 
I found two problems with the custom configuration.

  • The wildcard * isn't accepted inside a path.
    Example with firefox; I have got:
    • Firefox\Profiles\fehw7nzc.default
    • Firefox\Profiles\qngu2ovg.default
    I can't use:
    • Firefox\Profiles\*.default
    • Firefox\Profiles\????????.default
  • The (Exclude=____) option is actually excluding everything in a section.

    Example with chrome:
    Item0=File|%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome|(Filter=log.*;*.log)(FindInSubFolder=1)
    Item1=File|%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\GCM Store|(Filter=*.*)(FindInSubFolder=1)(Exclude=*.log;log.*)
    The first item should find all log or log.* or *.log files in %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome folder, the second item should exclude the unique LOG file present in %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\GCM Store (because I don't like to see it twice).
     
    Is this correct?
     
    Instead, it happens that all of the LOG files are excluded (*.log files are shown); these:
    • %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\data_reduction_proxy_leveldb\LOG
    • %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Extension Settings\ghbmnnjooekpmoecnnnilnnbdlolhkhi\LOG
    • %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Platform Notifications\LOG
    • %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\GCM Store\LOG
    • %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\GCM Store\LOG
    When I use the exclude option, there are five results missing (instead of one, the doublet).
    When I don't use the exclude option, those files appear, but the doublet also appears.
