Using Windows 10. 1TB hard drive. I had 600gb free before I started Eraser. Set Eraser to erase unused space on C drive. Eraser ran for over 24 hours and I stopped it when the C drive showed only 71.9gb free space.

Eraser is consuming all free space on the hard drive! I shut down all applications and rebooted, same thing.

Setting for DoD eraser method.

Please help!

in the root of the drive there is a directory called erasertmp - delete this.
You can also try running eraser in 1 pass mode again until it completes.
