What do the numbers in the progress window mean?

The progress window displays two items: the cumulative deletions that Cache Killer has made since it was first installed and the files currently being deleted.

The cumulative deletions information is in both (1) number of files and (2) total megabytes. Keep in mind that the total megabytes number reflects the deleted files' actual size, not the size that they consumed on your hard disk. (A 2K file might consume a 33K partition on your hard disk!) Thus, the total hard drive space saved by Cache Killer could actually be much greater than the total file size listed in the progress window.

The second piece of information, the files currently being deleted, might include files that are actually not deleted by Cache Killer. Cache Killer will not delete newsgroup caches or cookies. For example, if you have 120 files in your cache folder - 119 true cache files and one newsgroup cache - Cache Killer will display that it is "deleting 120 files" but it will actually pass over the newsgroup cache and only delete the 119 true cache files.
 

Cache Killer is a Macintosh application that deletes the web browser cache folders for Netscape Navigator, Netscape Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, America Online, Applešs Cyberdog, or any other browser you use! Using Cache Killer will maximize your hard disk space by eliminating the hundreds of individual cache files that browsers leave behind, enhance system performance by reducing the number of files the operating system must internally track, and vastly improve browser stability by eliminating the overhead required to internally track the numerous cache files.
