eraser completed with errors

Hi.
Win XP SP3, NetFramework 3.5 SP1

I try to delete File on a Partition. Partition is NTFS. I add a folder over "new task".
Eraser (Newest version) runs for 3-4 hours (10 gig to delete), ends with "completed with errors", and all files are still there.
Where is the bug?

Thx,
Mike

Right click the task, View Log, filterthe tasks to Warnings and above (if there are many messages) and copy/paste the messages here (if they are not sensitive, or filter the filenames)

Hi.

Error: F:\SystemVolumeInformation did not have its cluster tips erased because of the following error: Access to thre path F:\ SystemVolumeInformation denied

I wanted to erase unused space. How do I know if at least the rest is erased?

Thx,
Mike

Ah, that error is expected. Eraser is trying to erase the cluster tips of files in System Volume Information but since it is protected from user access it returns this error.
