Hey,

Whenever I hit the 35 pass button on the recycle bin and click yes it only runs 1 pass.
How can I fix this ?

Thanks, Xeross

Please bug this on Trac... I'll look into it when I next review v5 bugs.

Are you using 5.86a? If so can you open a command prompt (Winkey+R, type cmd, press enter); then run this command:
Code:
reg query HKCR\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\Shell\Erasext1\command
Please post the output, thanks.

Never mind, it's a problem with all stable releases. Install the 5.8.7-beta (see the updates forum) and it should be resolved.

For those who do not want to use the beta and want a fix (I'll assume you're really comfortable with the computer and will be ready to deal with the registry)

  1. Head into the registry editor
  2. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\Shell\Erasext\command
  3. Change the default value to read
    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\eraserl.exe -recycled -method Gutmann
