Description

I select files to be Erased and Eraser dumps all the files I selected to be erased into the Recycle Bin. I then have to erase the recycle bin. I've uninstalled the latest version and re-installed and still Eraser dumps all selected files to be erased and dumps them into the recycling bin.

I'm quite certain this is a procedure problem. Please describe in detail the steps you are using to erase the files, and also how you know that Eraser just moves the files to the Recycle Bin.

In Windows, moving files to the recycle bin requires a special API to be called (since the recycle bin is a special system folder and not just a normal one); Eraser does not call that API.
