Hi, I'm new here and I just downloaded and tried out eraser. It's a very good program, but I want to know if it's as good as any other secure delete software (I'm talking about shareware, NOT freeware). I'm usually skeptical when it comes to free secure delete program. The reason for this is because they are cheap in terms of quality when compared to shareware or commercial softwares. I tried other free ones, but found they are not as good as commercial ones. Ace Utilities is one of the commercial software which I just downloaded already. The secure deletion method that comes with Ace Utilities is very effective and I may plan to purchase it (cost $29.99) only for this feature. Unless you can convince me that eraser is also effective, maybe I don't have to shell out some dough, but I'm still not sure.
