Erased area = 0 bytes

Hi,

Tried to run Eraser to overwrite unused disk space on my hard drives and received the following report:

Cluster tips = 0 bytes



Data written = 0 bytes

Write time = 0.00 s

Failures:
Error: Erasing the Free Space of a drive requires elevation
Error: Erasing the Free Space of a drive requires elevation
Error: Failed to erase file names from drive C:\, don't know why exactly.
Error: Erasing the Free Space of a drive requires elevation
Error: Erasing the Free Space of a drive requires elevation
Error: Failed to erase file names from drive D:\, don't know why exactly.


What does this mean? Any help appreciated!

I have 64 bit Vista and got the same results that you listed. I found that if I started the program by right clicking on it, and then selecting "run as administrator", it runs without problems. Try this if you have not already, and see if it works for you.
