    Eraser can't erase traces even with 7 pass and 1 pass

    Found some bugs today when erasing... When i erase a file when Eraser process is not running in background, Eraser erases that file after some seconds, but when i open Eraser window the task list contains the same file marked as Not queued. When i choose Run now, it shows error that the file is...

    Eraser can't erase traces even with 7 pass and 1 pass

    Sorry for the misunderstandings, joel. I said i got this log entry when the process failed because of full disk. "When the process fails, " This is the usual Eraser error when it fillouts drive before writing random data fully to drive when we use more than single pass. Is it correct?..

    Eraser can't erase traces even with 7 pass and 1 pass

    No, i said this. When the Eraser process reaches some 90%, the drive fills completely with only some 800KB left and Eraser stops there telling it couldnt access/write to a folder with random name like E:\ytHm1uelvw5bhes7yh75o in the log. Then eraser leaves the random named folder on disk to let...

    Eraser can't erase traces even with 7 pass and 1 pass

    ok, joel, can you tell me why i cant wipe free space using more than single pass pseudorandom?. I can only use single pass. when overwriting free space with any other passes from 2-35, my drives are getting full at some 90%-95% and Eraser fails to complete the process successfully. Ca we use...

    Eraser can't erase traces even with 7 pass and 1 pass

    Joel, welcome to thread. You didn't say about why Recuva shows "Not Overwritten - File is resident in the MFT" when i choose "Securely Overwrite" in Recuva for the green files. Why they dont get overwritted in Recuva if they are deleted and are residing in MFT?. When those deleted green files...

    Eraser can't erase traces even with 7 pass and 1 pass

    i wanted to show you about the MFT entries that are not deleted after successfully completing free space wipe. Here in forum i read from you i think that those MFT entries are deleted by Eraser at end of free space wipe. But when i came to see the MFT entries not deleted(via Tuneup Undelete) i...

    Eraser can't erase traces even with 7 pass and 1 pass

    Ya David, it failed once when i used Eraser for the first time with 7 pass and drive filled at some 94% with no more space for Eraser to complete the operation. But after when i used pseudorandom it completed successfully with Eraser automatically deleting the random named folder created by it...

    Eraser can't erase traces even with 7 pass and 1 pass

    Oh..that is disappointing. Before using Eraser or before Eraser created this hidden random named folder in drive, it was very quick for any recovery softs like Recuva or Tuneup Undelete to search for a particular extension. But after Eraser created this folder these recovery softs are taking a...

    Eraser can't erase traces even with 7 pass and 1 pass

    I am very disappointed to note you that eraser cant wipe free space even after performing DOD 5220 7 pass and 1 pass psuedorandom. Recovery softwares, Tuneup Undelete and File Scavenger found a deleted file in my drive even after running more than two "Free space erasing" using above said 1...
