Hello,

I downloaded version 5.84 last night and started running an unused space erase. I've never used Eraser before. I'm quite concerned because it's been 9 hours now and the program appears to still be running. I've tried to see if there is anyway to check the progress since I read in the forums that some people indicated that they got an error message when an X% of the process had been completed. :? I can't seem to find any indication of progress anywhere, neither a progrees bar nor a percentage amount. I also read in the forums that it is not recommended to quit the process. What shoud I do? I need my computer to get back to work! :(

In the Statistics tab of the task properties I get the following report:

Task Report:

Processed = 1 times
Successful = 0 times
Terminated = 0 times
Possible failure = 1 times

Statistics (average):

Erased area = 0 kB
Data written = 0 kB
Write time = 0.00 s


And this is what's in the log:

9/7/2007 12:17:27 AM: Scheduler (5.84) starting.
9/7/2007 12:34:31 AM: Scheduler (5.84) starting.

most probably you are trying to do a 35 pass type erase whan 1 pass is sufficient.
