The Settings option in the Disk Cleaner interface allows you to configure various options related to the operation of the Disk Cleaner. The Settings panel can be accessed by clicking the Settings tab in the Disk Cleaner interface.
Selecting this option creates a Windows restore point prior to the disk cleaning operation. A Windows restore point is a snapshot of your system as it currently stands. This is useful because it allows you to roll back your system to its last known working state in the event of system failure or performance problems following software or hardware re-configuration. Comodo System-Cleaner provides this essential failsafe feature in all cleaning modules (for example, you also have the option to create a restore point before running Registry Cleaner and Privacy Cleaner operations).
Selecting this option instructs the Disk Cleaner to preserve backup for folders/files deleted during any privacy cleaning operation. This way you can use the backup to restore the files at any time on necessity, in case you have accidentally selected some vital files during the cleaning operation. You can store the backup files in compressed, encrypted and password protected, providing an additional level of safety. In this way you are protected from others from maliciously restoring the files you deleted. You have to enter this password every time you restore files from the backup created by the Privacy Cleaner. For more details on location, compression and encryption settings of the backup files, see Settings > Backup Settings section.
The warning dialogs from the Disk Cleaner are displayed only if this option is enabled. Uncheck this option if you don't want to see the warning messages and dialogs.

If enabled, the Disk Cleaner logs events history about each scan action and result.

Provides an additional level of failsafe security to File Cleaning operations:
All files selected for removal will be backed up prior to any cleaning operation.
Should your system fail to restart after a cleaning operation then the safe-deleted files will be automatically restored and your system rebooted.
On rebooting your system after any cleaning operation, SAFE DELETE provides you with the option to either finalize the deletion or restore the deleted files.
Comodo recommends that users leave this setting enabled.
