I don't know what you mean by "old files". I don't see that term used in the settings. I assume that you mean the settings in A1Click that say "Remove Files not Used Since 1999", "Remove Files not Used Since 2000", "Remove Files not Used Since 2001", and "Remove Files not Used Since 2002". It refers to when it was "last used".
