    "Error: Failed to clean directory entry.... - Why?

    Yes, I know there are programs that 'claim' to do a great job at deleting the files AND clearing filenames, but that don't really work. And I see exactly what you mean about being 'careful' as to deleting data. It's really pretty rare that a filename would need to be 'cleared' - really...

    "Error: Failed to clean directory entry.... - Why?

    Windows 2000 Pro being a more 'secure' OS, as compared to Win95 or Win98, makes sense.

    Erasor Didn't Erase Filenames....

    I'm trying to use Eraser version 5.7 with Windows 2000 Pro. I deleted the contents of one of Internet Explorer's cache directories and then looked at that directory with another program (Clean Disk Security) to see if the file names were erased. They were NOT completely erased! Am I...
