This ticket arises from the thread "Problem shredding compressed file" on the Eraser Support forum. In a post timed Fri Mar 05, 2010 4:17 pm, Joel stated, "But the files itself aren't, so I don't understand why this is happening either. could you set up a Trac ticket for me to investigate this? ". This was in response to the following statement by DavidHB, "What caught me was that the files were not compressed, but the folder they were contained in was"

I've done these steps, and the problem doesn't seem to manifest itself.

  1. Create a new folder, "New Folder"
  2. Create file A (can be anything), and copy the file A, to Copy of A (within the same folder)
  3. Right-click on "New Folder", Properties, Advanced, and check "Compress contents..."
  4. When asked whether to apply on the folder only or both folder and subcontents, select subcontents
  5. Unset the compressed attribute on A
  6. Erase "New Folder"

The result is that A is erased, Copy of A isn't, which is the expected behaviour.

What gives?
