    Does eraser really wipe free space on SSD drives?

    The FAQ on the ccCleaner sites claims that wiping free space on an solid state drive is useless, and will do nothing but reduce the life of the drive. Has eraser been tested on modern SSD drives?

    right click menu in a 32-bit explorer

    I could not get eraser in the context menu on my 64-bit laptop. I wasted a great deal of time installing and uninstaling, using shellexview (which could not see eraser, in my case) and everything else. What finally worked for me was choosing "instal on local hard drive" rather than the default...

    "Done, with errors" Sort of like the program...

    Huh? I uninstalled 6.0.7, then tried two of the "nightly builds", then re-installed 6.0.7, described as "stable," when the problem failed to disappear. As far as I can see I'm out of options. One has to put a time limit on these things.

    "Done, with errors" Sort of like the program...

    Ok, I'll put it another way. I gave it my best shot, and I've been defeated. I'm all for open source, but my time is limited, and this problem is so central as to render the program useless. There does not seem to be a solution, and I don't have any programming skills to offer. Ciao

    Whenever I try to use eraser anywhere in my local settings folder (user/apdata/local) on Window 7, it doesn't work. These are not protected system files, and lockhunter says no processes are using them. Local settings is, of course, where a huge amount of sensitive data accumulates. The...

    Eraser 6.0.7 doesn't work in Win 7

    The most frequent error appears in a bubble from the lower right on the task bar, say "(filename & location) has completed with errors." That bubble disappears when I try to right or left click on it. The file I tried to erase is still there, untouched. Somehow it feels like my installation...

    Eraser 6.0.7 doesn't work in Win 7

    I switiched to Win 7 after a hard disk crash. Wasn't a smooth installation, but it seems stable. Except for Eraser 6.0.7, which doesn't work from the contex menu. Either it claims to have erased the file "with errors" (but the file remains untouched," or a box pops up saying "an error has...
