Unable to shred a 45GB folder with 4 million files

I delted All in One Submitter because it created a "cache" file of 4 million dll files in a 45GB folder. I am unable to delte it(too big for my delete bin) and eraser crashes when I run it. I ran this for 6 hours and nothing got delted My free space on my SSD drive went from 20GB to 18GB after running eraser. I am ready to re-format my SSD drive C but would rather just shred this monster. Any help is appreciated. Thank you Courtenay in Albuquerque NM

Your best bet is to delete the folder via windows and then run a free space erase. With 4 Million files any process trying to erase one at a time will take forever.
A one pass free space erase will be sufficient
