File name/location deletion?

Postby ruthsuttonuk » Thu Apr 12, 2012 12:29 pm


Could anyone tell me should eraser totally get rid of the file and foldernames that have been deleted?

Does it at all wipe the registry or metadata, or is intended not to?

It does. You should try to run a recovery tool to see if the information that does remain (because it is hard to remove everything) is within your tolerance level.
Be sure to read the FAQ before posting. If you found this application useful, please contribute to Eraser's development.
