Erasing free space of a disk : always reports errors ...
Two different disks and the same error after erasing their unused space.

Error Files in H:\System Volume Information did not have its cluster tips erased because of the following error:
Access to the path 'H:\System Volume Information' is denied.

So after one hour "is denied" ?
Has the unused space erased or not ?

Thanks

Hi buddy, looks like you don't have access to this file/folder. Are you logged in as admin? Windows 7? Try granting permission on this folder too.

I am using XP, so what is the matter in this situation ?

For XP make sure you are logged in as administrator, check there is a reasonable amount of diskspace free, empty the recycle bin and retry.

Fresh reinstall of 6.0.10.2620
Admin running on XP, recycle empty.
Disk : a new one, previsously formatted, partitioned and written with few data.
Launched the "erase the unused space" only once, but how there two tasks one queued along with the correct other ?

Anyway the result is same I informed time ago:
"Error Files in H:\System Volume Information did not have its cluster tips erased because of the following error: Access to the path 'H:\System Volume Information' is denied."

Just released a new build http://eraser.heidi.ie/download.php?id=279

From your screenshots its the old 6.0 version you are using. You need to be testing against the above build as I cannot fix bugs in older versions.

Let me know if the new version fixes the floppy issue.

With new version floppy is same always accessing.

Also, a new bug, when executing a wipe of file, the window for the task is not visible also in the tray bar.

But .... when releasing new version, did you check before it also in XP ?

With this floppy problem I'll need to get an XP machine with a floppy drive, these days that could be a near impossible task, currently we test with XP VM images.

The task window you mention is a feature missing problem from 6.0

Await the next release....

It is NOT the truth.
With Eraser 6.0.10.2620 this windows was present !

yes but this feature is excluded in 6.1 - could you send me a screen shot so I know we are talking about the same thing.

System Volume Information is a protected folder and no one will be able to touch it. So don't worry about that error.

I probably might implement some whitelist that won't report these kinds of errors. But I'm not sure.

CCleaner works fine without returning errors ... hoping next Eraser will do the same ...

I'm not trying to defend Eraser or anything, but CCleaner targets a slightly different audience. Naturally the behaviour would be different.

Eraser started out as a tool for (very) paranoid people. Or, well, at least I thought so.
