As far as I know, unless you have a faulty hard drive in which case it is going to fail sometime soon anyway.NetPoo said:This is a safe operation in the near 100% of cases, right?
Pleased to hear it.Think Ill be wiping free space on my other partitions (6 big ones)
You may have agreed to those "Erase on restart" messages.NetPoo said:Two strange things happened:
1) Windows defender came out with two warnings about some entries needing aproval to autostart - no description at all about what program was trying to create autostart entries - so I did not allow
Possibly, System restore cleaned up its own old entries. It does that itself when space is low.NetPoo said:2) When eraser reached about 49% free space wiping windows came up with a "drive running out of free space" message. Eraser stopped wiping, deleted temporary files and finished.
I rebooted and saw i had 10 extra GB on my system drive. Everything seems to be normal. Think Ill be wiping free space on my other partitions (6 big ones)
