HTC HD2 SD Card - Illegal characters in path.

When trying to erase unused space on the sd card of a HTC HD2, Eraser errors with the ‘Illegal characters in path’ message in log view.
I’ve looked (appdata) for a more detailed log, but cannot find it.
Running Eraser 6.0.8.2273 on Win7x64.

A known problem; in this case, Windows presumably doesn't like the Android file names. Assuming that the task is still in the schedule, I suggest the you edit it to disable the option to erase cluster tips (no very great issue in most cases, including yours) and try again.

Thanks, the task runs ok with cluster tips disabled. Though Android wasn't the problem since am running Windows 6.5 as the phone OS.

Indeed i can, though it doesn't seem to give any more information:

I guess I'll need a stack trace. In the absence of that... I'm assuming your SD card has a drive letter to it? Please do the following steps:

  1. Press Windows key + R
  2. type in cmd, press enter.
  3. in the command prompt that appears, type in "cd <drive letter>:", without quotes. e.g. "cd G:"
  4. type "tree /a /f", press enter.
  5. right-click the command prompr, click mark in the context menu, and select the output of the screen. Right click again, select copy
  6. paste here

Your output should be similar to this:

C:\Users\Joel\.nbi>tree /a /f
