    I have been reading over the net that in the advanced options that are ticked by default in CCleaner for Wipe free space and Wipe MFT space is really bad for SSD's.

    Is this true or should I re-tick them again for the SSD as that is how they were when I installed it just now.

    Thanks.

    SSD wears and gets slower if you delete to often on it, so you should leave those disabled.

    If this is true thanks for the tip Explosivepants1!

    Nevermind, these are disabled by default on my system.
