Yes, let me make this as clear as I can. The recipes are saved to folders. What I am talking about is when I 'click' on the 'Start Orb' the menu opens and I go to 'Notepad' and 'clicking on the arrow allows me to preview what is in 'Notepad'. After using CCleaner the recipes were no longer there but did remain in folders.
Just curious as to whether this is an anomaly or I failed to uncheck something, etc. Maybe files saved in this manner are treated as 'Temp Files' by CCleaner but as I have stated previously they were not deleted using TFC. Regardless, not earth-shattering.
Nothing you said before led me think that the files were still there in their physical location. I am sure nobody else got that impression either. However, now that you have gone into some more explanation, the issue is clear.
This is not, as you put it, an anomaly. In fact, this is the way CCleaner works. Some programs, e.g. word processors, keep a record of recent files. That record is suppose to make it easier for the user to find the files he used last. To me, keeping a record of recent files is quite useless, but that's just me. Nevertheless, as time passes, the list of recent files can grow quite long unless there is an option to control it. This, along with other temporary files, will also take up space on the user's hard drive. CCleaner, by default, cleans up these files. If you find the default settings unsuitable, you can always change them as you like. In this case, the setting you want might either be Windows Explorer->Recent Documents or System->Temporary Files. You may have to experiment a bit to find the correct one.
