    Eraser forum & download site often unavailable

    At least today - Jun 7 - I'm able to access the site normally - ONCE. But, other times in the past, I could access it; still other times, not be able to for hours or even until the following day. So, too early to tell. Don't know if it's possible to interject your own error msg, when users...

    Eraser forum & download site often unavailable

    Off & on over several weeks (at least) I've gotten errors when trying to reach forum or download sites. Sometimes problem persists for hours. Next day, I may be able to access the sites. There's always the same message: Clicking on Error Console in Firefox 20 / 21 shows a more detailed...

    Do scheduled tasks deleted from UI get erased

    When any data is deleted from the scheduled task UI - jobs, logs, etc., are they automatically erased? If not, doesn't that pose a risk, depending on what the data is? If they do get erased, should it say, "Do you want to erase the selected task?" Just deleting them would be the equivalent of...

    Include text copy of reply in email notices?

    Is there any way the automatic email notifications could be changed, so they contain text version of the actual reply (like options on many forums)? Often, the replies don't concern me or aren't anything of interest, where I'd want to log in just to read them. Not a criticism - just not all...

    Has Eraser development & support mostly stopped?

    I haven't seen any activity on nightly versions since 0ct. 2012 & no posts on beta forum for months. Also posts in this forum often get no replies from devs / mods for days or weeks. If it's no longer under development, or "on vacation," please let us know. :) Thanks.

    Thanks David. You can access the SECURE https forum URL? It's possible you have some diff settings in FF prefs than me, for security settings. Thanks for the link. I understand about over riding the security warning on certs. The "tutorial" on that link is a bit misleading (for those not...

    Thanks David. Not sure we're on same page. When I receive email notifications, this is the link contained to view the topic: https://eraser.heidi.ie/forum/viewtopic.php<forum or topic id> When follow the link from email, for Beta forum I get the error in Firefox on SECURITY CERTIFICATE, not...

    No section for Forum Issues; heidi

    There's no section to post questions on forum issues, so I'll put it here. When using the https://eraser.heidi.ie/forum/ , Firefox reports a certificate error. The secure connection URL is the one sent in email notifications of forum replies. Does Heidi keep this certificate updated?

    Recuva and Eraser

    I don't know the answer for sure. Were any of the files actually recovered by Recuva actually readable - in part or whole? Eraser has problems sometimes erasing locked files, especially Windows files / system (what it CONSIDERS system files). Don't know what was EVER in the files you mention...

    Can Eraser 6.0.8.2273 create crash reports?

    I took some screens when Eraser 6.0.8 crashed, trying to erase a locked file w/ "force locked files to be unlocked" enabled. Per the ticket 394 comments, I'm using Vista x64 hm prem SP2. Do have True Crypt 7.1 installed, but doesn't start w/ Windows & not running when erasing files. Use...

    Can Eraser 6.0.8.2273 create crash reports?

    Thanks. You added another about testing while I was writing this. BTW, why doesn't this forum have posts numbered in a corner, so they can be referred to ("in post 3, he said")? At beginning of your next to last comment, you seem to be thinking out loud. I often do. Users (I) could monitor...

    Can Eraser 6.0.8.2273 create crash reports?

    Joel... The entire Eraser program crashes. Generic pop up Error msg - same as when any prgm in Vista stops working, "(Eraser) has stopped responding." Then gives options, "look for solution on internet & close prgm. 2) Wait for prgm to start responding, 3) Close prgm now." Everything in...

    Can Eraser 6.0.8.2273 create crash reports?

    In Vista x64, Eraser 6.0.8.2273 sometimes crashes on context menu erasing (not scheduled task, where err log might be useful). I noted it sometimes crashes when selecting several files at once to erase by selecting the files in Explorer, the R click > Erase. No explanation other than Eraser...

    Erasing free space on encrypted partition

    Thanks Joel, we'll see how effective erasing the free space of encrypted volume actually was. 1) When encrypting an entire volume w/ TC, one way is to create a new vol (or guess take an existing one), then select it thru TC's encrypted vol creation wizard. Letter for "real" encrypted vol is...

    Erasing free space on encrypted partition

    Update: I thought about the error "directory not found" and what I'd mentioned that True Crypt encrypted volumes appear as unformatted, empty space to windows. On a hunch, decided to mount the volume, then erase free space of virtual volume letter assigned by True Crypt, instead of actual...

    Erasing free space on encrypted partition

    Thanks. Do you have any idea of type system file issue might cause the problem I'm having? Vista itself & all other apps I use seem fine, but... May not mean anything, but this is only partition I've recently had errors erasing free space. It's also the only encrypted partition. I can run...

    Erasing free space on encrypted partition

    David, no - the OS sees the encrypted drive (partition) as an unformatted volume, w/ an assigned letter. Real issue in my mind is Eraser crashing & reporting error when erasing free space on encrypted drive, when Help says shouldn't be a problem. The error given (see post 1) may / may not be...

    Erasing free space on encrypted partition

    Eraser help says it erase free space on encrypted drives. It says the encryption is transparent to Eraser. However, when I try to erase free space on a whole partition encrypted w/ True Crypt 7, Eraser 6.1.0.2278 crashes, and one of lines in error msg is "directory not found." This partition...
