Description

XP Pro SP3 .net 3.5

Eraser V6 Beta 3

When I right click on the recycle bin and select erase, eraser tries to access my floppy disk for some reason.

Should this be happening ?

mmm. It should. Because Eraser won't assume that your drives A and B do not have a recycle bin. I'm not sure how valid an assumption will be that drives A and B don't have a recycle bin. I know some people who would mount ZIP disks on drive B and they may actually have recycle bins in them.

What do you think? Should we make the assumption?

Oh there you go giving me those tough choices again ! A bit like the HTML folder thing !

I guess with floppy drives dying out someone is going to use the “A” drive for something else that may have a recycle bin on it.

Is there no way to silently check to see if the A drive is a floppy drive or not ? Would it be possible to tell from the system hardware properties ?

I guess if it was known to be a floppy drive then Eraser wouldn’t need to check for a recycle bin on it. But then again someone may have strangely put one on there. AARRGGHHHH !

OK Joel leave it as it is, sorry !
