Erase free space on external hard drive on a wireless networ

I have a NetGear Stora external hard drive connected via wireless network. I want to securely erase its contents. I go to New Task, Add Data, and when I click Unused Disk Space, I do not see the drive letter I have the external drive mapped to (Z:) available to select.

Is it not possible to use Eraser to erase free space on my hard drive?

I remember having done a more precise explanation, but it seems to have eluded me.

A quick search reveals:

  • http://bbs.heidi.ie/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7634&p=22596&hilit=network+erase

Basically it may work, or it may not, too much is left to unknowns and thus if you want to do such an erasure, do so at your own risk (and check that stuff is actually erased!)
