Eraser runs but never completes


New Member
I have tried several times to have Eraser erase unused space on my harddrive. This is a Windows 10 PC with a SSD. Each time it runs for hours (overnight several times) and the bar is green almost all the way across, but then it just sits there and never says it is finished. It seems to work ok cleaning specific files or folders.

I then feel like it is leaving lots and lots of little empty files on my hard drive. I see folders with very long obsure names - perhaps these are temp files? But they fill up my harddrive and I have to kill Eraser and delete them manually.

How can I get Eraser to run and finish on it's own? I am using version
