    Unwanted Tasks Added to Schedule

    Install the .Net framework from here first: Then try installing eraser. I'll look at embedding the runtime in the install but that tends to make it very large.

    Completed with errors

    The problem has been responded to many times. Errors are caused by a variety of reasons e.g locked files , Anti -Virus application interfering, Disk errors etc You need to look there first before blaming eraser.

    in the root of the drive there is a directory called erasertmp - delete this. You can also try running eraser in 1 pass mode again until it completes.

    Erase data from a shared computer

    You should also do a freespace erase to get any temp files created/deleted by the application. I'm assuming here you have administrator control of the machine and can access all the drive.

    Images deleted from right click Erase are easily recovered

    >>I ran the "Erase Free Space" option The free space erase will not remove files in the recycle bin or in hidden partitions (system restore), and it relies on the directory table being intact. Did you format the HDD and then try to erase free space and did the erase complete without any errors...

    erase empty space on schedule, a little bit at a time

    I don't think that would be possible as the disk is changing all the time. You are better off not doing what you suggest as the drive will wear out. Try creating an encrypted partition and storing the files there. Then erase the partition every night. If you create one the minimum size then...
