No, a default should always be the safest option, not the most common one.
If you do a delete in explorer, the default button in the confirmation
dialog is not the "Yes" button (which would be the most common one) but the
"No" button because that's the safe option.

But how about this: I'll make the checkbox remember the last state, so if
you use the cleanup dialog with that box checked, it will be checked the
next time as well.
