I am a complete novice to computers, so could someone please explain the following:
I have downloaded the above Tool and it appears to be working as it should, but my query relates to the FILE TOOL.
There is a search word box and the word Source.
When I click on that particular box I get ALL hard disks, then below this, System temp dir, then below this I get, System dir. Could someone tell me what these three things mean and when should they be used?

Thanks, WAY1

May I respectfully suggest that JV16PowerTools is not something that a "a complete novice to computers" should be using, unless there is something wrong with your machine.

JV16PowerTools is very powerful = potential for wrecking your 'puter so that it won't boot up.

Having said that, the File Tool looks relatively innocuous.

If you select All Hard disks it will scan what is usually drive C: (assuming you only have one hard disk(.

If you click on the little "..." button just to the left of the drop-down arrow it will list all your drives- floppy, DVD, zip and whatever.

Thanks for your response VoG. I won't be touching anything unless I am absolutely sure I know what I am doing, but could someone tell me if when doing the scan, are all the files listed under this procedure, Temporary Files or otherwise?

The Files Tool looks at ALL files (depending on what you specify in the search box) - care!

The TEMP File Tool is designed to look only for temporary files (or at least those in Temp folders) and is potentially safer.
