Stuff And Cache You Should Probably Delete From Your Google-Chrome

Either do it manually,
or add few “include” items to your CCleaner configuration-file.

first let’s break the profile-location for each of the operating-systems supported (Windows XP, Windows 7 and later, MacOS and Linux based – not including ChromeOS)

Windows (XP, 7 and later..)
C:\Documents and Settings\Elad\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\
C:\Documents and Settings\Elad\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome Canary\User Data\
C:\Documents and Settings\Elad\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome SxS\User Data\
C:\Documents and Settings\Elad\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
C:\Users\Elad\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\
C:\Users\Elad\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome Canary\User Data\
C:\Users\Elad\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome SxS\User Data\
C:\Users\Elad\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\

Mac OS X:
~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome Canary/
~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome SxS/
~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/

Linux:
~/.config/google-chrome/

the folder-location you should empty-recursively or (simply delete the entire folder – it will be regenerated on next Chrome run) – sorry for the slash direction, on Mac/Linux just switch \ to / :)

\Crash Reports\
\Crashpad\
\Default\Application Cache\
\Default\Cache\
\Default\File System\
\Default\GPUCache\
\Default\IndexedDB\
\Default\Local Storage\
\Default\Media Cache\
\Default\Pepper Data\
\Default\Service Worker\ScriptCache\
\Default\Session Storage\
\ShaderCache\

You probably want to switch from Elad to your user-name,
here is an example on how it should look inside (for example) ccleaner.ini file:
Include8=PATH|C:\Documents and Settings\Elad\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default\Cache\|*.*|RECURSE

feel free to run the following code in your console,
to generate a proper list which you can add to your CCleaner (or any batch file for example..)

when copy&paste don’t forget to
– change your user-name to something other than ‘Elad’, unless your name is ‘Elad’ too, in which case – this is awesome!! (you can send me email to say hello)
– remove the prefix and suffix of " chars from console :)
– make sure the start_from is indeed starting from first-new index inline,
this is tricky since ccleaner.ini is not sorted nicely, so you better drop its content into EditPlus and sort it by “numeric value”,
quickly find which one is the last line starting with “IncludeXXXXX=” the start_from should be this index plus one,
for example if your last “IncludeXX” line is Include41=PATH|C:\Users\Elad\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects|*.*|RECURSE – change the start index from 15 to 42 :)

which will generate about 118 items:

naturally you won't need all of them,
but you might do!

especially since:
- Chromium, Chrome and Chrome Canary can live in same computer quite happily :]
- folders that won't exist would simply be skipped,
- you might use the portable ccleaner version, where you might want to move the installation around few computers (on DiskOnKey or network location for example)
--- in this case you might even want to re-run the script for each user-name used (including Admin/Administrator/other.. accounts)
- better not use those fancy
%Profile% and other current profile shortcuts, the web is filled with stories about cases where CCleaner has emptied the entire hard-drive or user accounts (desktop and all!!!) because of “won’t fix” bug that (apparently still exist in newer versions).
— so don’t take a change and only use direct-folder names…
