Clone app 7z compressions
the 7z compression didnt work until I added quotes. it was %ProgramW6432%\7-Zip\7z.exe a "K:\downloads\July 2020\CloneApp\Backup.7z" "K:\downloads\July 2020\CloneApp\Backup" tried in cmd prompt and got error 'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. I added quotes so it looks like "%ProgramW6432%\7-Zip\7z.exe" a "K:\downloads\July 2020\CloneApp\Backup.7z" "K:\downloads\July 2020\CloneApp\Backup" --- Notice quotes around the exe line.
Hopefully this helps someone else. Is a good program but haven't used the restore yet.

I have downloaded and ran Bloatbox and it shows I have 92 apps including system ones. How do I know which are unnecessary apps or bloatware and will not effect the operation of other apps and windows 10 itself if I remove them?

Help! Why does Spydish seemingly not work?
I installed Spydish on my Windows 10 laptop and changed several additional policies, amongst others blocking the new Microsoft Edge and disabling forced Windows updates as well as blocking major Windows updates. Afterwards I clicked on "Apply selected" and the changes are to be seen. Therefore I assumed that these changes will apply.
When I closed Spydish and opened it again it did not show the changes I made before. Clicking on "Analyze" shows that all the policies I applied earlier are not configured.
How can I actually apply these changes? I really need your help urgently!

Spydish ran away...
Hi. Installed Spydish yesterday and ran the Analyze and Apply options, then noticed the 'remove bloatware' wasn't checked. Ran that today hoping there would be a 'do you really want to do this?' option so I could see what the app regards as bloat. (Feature suggestion there!) However the 'remove' option ran, I had a brief view of boxes being ticked, and the app disappeared - crashed or just closed. When I tried to run it again I got a 'you don't have permission' error and even the shortcut disappeared! I have no idea what happened, but if anyone can suggest what to do next I'd be grateful!!

Great program! I really mean that, but I have a suggestion though:
Could you include the “Alarms & Clock” app from the Windows 10 bloat-ware—I use this all the time (pun). I have at least 40 entries, most are triggered daily. I have just finished another clean install of Windows and all the entries are a real pain to rebuild. It usually takes me a week of the wrong alarm triggers to fix my input errors. I have had it (Alarms & Clock) fail 3 or 4 times and my quarterly clean install takes me quite a while, I’m thankful for the time saved with the CloneApp operation.
Many thanks & remember to wear the mask.

Love the app. Few suggestions
Hey there! Thanks for your efforts. This app is much needed.
I recently used SharpApp after getting a new laptop with Windows 10 in S mode. Of course I immediately changed that to Windows 10 Home after upgrading the RAM and hard drive. But doing that required a clean install. I was lucky to find SharpApp to help streamline my machine after re-installing the OS.
One suggestion I have is to use Open-Shell instead of Classic Shell, which is no longer supported.
Another suggestion has to do with what / how stuff gets disabled. For instance I recently joined the Windows Insider program to get access to "Beta" releases. Sometimes I like to provide feedback to the developers and they ask for my Diagnostic data, which is set to Basic (and the Full is greyed out). How do I change that back? Is that a registry entry?
Anyway thanks again for the great work.
Now I'm off to try and figure out how to dual-boot or at least boot from USB on UEFI...

Congratulations for CloneApp and suggestion of a n
First of all, thank you very much for your work and continuous improvement and for the friendly philosophy with which you work.
So I dare ask for an easy but powerful new feature for CloneApp: Evacuate.
Evacuate would be the same as BackUp but deleting the copied items (registry and files).
This would be a feature with many advantages:
+ In front of the traditional "uninstaller" programs, it allows you to recover the installation.
+ It also allows delete installations of the "false portable" programs: They do not use an installer (so they cannot be uninstalled) but they write to the registry and to% LOCALAPPDATA%
+ I don't know of any other program that has this possibility.
+ I think you can take advantage of practically all the BackUp code for this feature.
I hope you like the suggestion.

I love the program, just a quick question though, I've utilised it removing all telemetry and bloatware etc. but I am having a hard time figuring what part of this disables the ability to use NVIDIA control panel. I imagine it has to do with the services maybe? Any clue on how to resolve this issue?
