I apologize if this is answered somewhere. I have tried to read all of the docs/faqs etc, and haven't found my answer.

I am trying to set up eraser on a USB drive to support privacy. I am looking to run it in a similar way as the "traveler mode" that Truecrypt supports.

Is this possible? How would one do it?

Thank you for your time.

Very interesting!

Would that not help with my concern in http://bbs.heidi.ie/viewtopic.php?t=3293 that installing/uninstalling Eraser on the hard-drive does leave traces that it's been used there?

Is this "portable" version fully compatible, dependable, and up-to-date?

No it is not up to date but it works.

For portable usage, I just use Eraserl.exe+Eraser.dll from Eraser v5.84. That's the last one that doesn't need the VC++ runtimes.

It leaves no traces except for the 'HK??\SOFTWARE\Heidi Computers Ltd' registry key, which you can remove afterwards (or via BAT file).

Post a suggestion in the Eraser wiki on SourceForge just so I reembmer. I doublt v6 will be portable because it will require the use of a service to get around UAC restrictions etc.
