    Joel, you still working on Eraser?

    I know the last few times I posted, you said free time was scarce, so was just wondering if you were still working on this project or had moved on to other things.

By securely erasing 1.mp3, does that also make abc.mp3 and def.mp3 unrecoverable as well since they were on...

    On demand erasing fails if you disable startup item

    This worked fine in 6.0.6, but gives an error in 6.0.7. What I do on my computer is since I already have around 20 things in my system tray is disable the eraser startup entry, because I never schedule erasures, I only need it on occassion for on demand erasings. With 6.0.6 the only drawback...

    Erasing free space fails, due to bad random file names

    On a XP computer, I've tried to do a wipe free space a couple times, usually I let it run overnight and it's BSOD'd when i wake up in the morning. Today I tried another one and decided to watch it. it did all the cluster tip areas, then filled up my hard drive, but when it got to the point of...
