erasing files emptied w/o Eraser??

Hello,

I just downloaded Eraser. While using Eraser is pretty straight-forward I have a question about how to delete previous files completely that I didn't delete with Eraser but just deleted using "Empty Recycle Bin."

I need to get these previously semi-erased files off my hard drive, but seems a bit confusing...

Thanks in advance,
Me....

Run eraser as an administrator, then do an Unused Space erase.

Thanks so much buddy.

This is what I did: FILE -> NEW TASK; then under "Unused space on drive" I selected "C:\" and clicked "OK"; it was now under my list of tasks so I did TASK -> RUN. This is what you meant right? Also, What did you mean by running as admin? If everything gets deleted fine then I don't have to worry about running as admin right? I'm confused about this admin thing because it seemed to have completed okay without running as admin.

Thanks in advance,
me....

Oh wait, I assumed you were using Vista. You obviously aren't. It's okay.
