I tried to erase some files and received error in status:
"24 December 2012 11:42:26
Error
The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters."

Eraser 6.0.10
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

Any idea?

Antivirus is not working now. Prepared 1kb file K:\hello.txt, try to erase and... COMPLETED WITH ERRORS.
"The specified path, file name, or both are too long."

File hello.txt gone, now is T070zo25l with 0kb size.

Bug?

What was the original path to the files that first failed? Have you tried to uninstall Eraser then reinstall it?

Long path error!
"Long path tool" is very helpful for this problem. You can solve this problem like copy, delete, long path files by using this tool.
I used to have similar problems too, but after using "long path tool" everything was solved. Try this software and you would be glad you did.
