    The 5.84 doesn't like getting kicked out of the nest to be portable! This will be fine..... thanks

    Portable for 5.84?

    OK, I downloaded the 5.82 R2 portable and it works perfect for erasing files. They both default to one pass for unused disk space, but the one you gave me will only run 35 pass for erasing files themselves. I noticed the file structure is quite different than what you gave me too. The...

    Portable for 5.84?

    Humm.. I just tried to erase a file and it will only do the default 35 pass routine?..... even though I check another it only runs the default. This happens whether I put the files to erase in before I set the settings or after. I thought I read the 5.84 version does the one pass by...

    Portable for 5.84?

    Thanks for all your help... your portable version seems to work perfect... I was wondering if I could merely use the eraser.dll from this program and save it to put with the next version if I have this same problem again... I wonder if that particular file gets updated very often or if its...

    Portable for 5.84?

    I think I must have been thinking about that "hacked" version you spoke of where you can see what has been deleted!... I wonder how that works? But did I gather that it was basically the "eraser.dll" file that did the majic? Putting it in the same directory "on the thumbdrive" that the rest...

    Portable for 5.84?

    I copied a file to a temp directory and then deleted that file the normal way with windows.. .then when I went to that directory with eraser and told it to erase everything "in" that directory, I got an error saying there was nothing to erase..... so apparently it only erases files that have...

    Portable for 5.84?

    Maybe I never understood how this program really works.... I always thought of a free space wipe as choosing a drive and it wipes all the nooks and crannys that used to have files that still have remnants..... I guess I never realized you could pick one directory and it will only attack that...

    Portable for 5.84?

    Hey... good job!... It works!!!! Sorry I didn't see it... its been a crazy few days here at work... I've just been jumping in long enough to respond to posts without spending any real time... sorry....... Now the only thing cooler would be to have a program that can go to a drive or...

    Can eraser securely erase deleted files?

    Thats a great idea... especially if your sensitive files are basically under one directory..... the only problem is the physical location on the hardrive of files kept in a specific "file location" I don't believe coorespond to they? I other works, file #1,2,3, and 4 kept in directory called...

    Portable for 5.84?

    Nice Dick Tracy work!.... I haven't had a chance to see if it works.... I never got that file from you yet... How did you send it?

    Can eraser securely erase deleted files?

    Good... just making sure 2 + 2 still equals 5 :shock: I suppose there was some confusion as to what was "used" space verses "unused"

    Can eraser securely erase deleted files?

    I would think the act of "overwriting unused disk space" would in fact be deleting already deleted files?

    Portable for 5.84?

    Yes, the previous version was uninstalled. But my thumbdrive version "5.82" works perfect on this system? I'm guessing that both yours and your girlfriends had the other version "installed" prior and so have the .dll files already that it looks for... I bet if an when you uninstalled...

    32 bit or 64 bit

    I don't run Vista, but try right clicking on "my computer" and seeing what the properties say.

    I was.... seems its not available in a portable format though... so I'll have to continue to use 5.82 till it gets upgraded.

    Portable for 5.84?

    OK, I got the whole tamale this time.... I saved it to hardrive.. that worked much better... anyway.. when I doubleclick on eraser.exe, I got the same message as the one when I installed it myself. I appears you simply copied all your files and sent them to me? The error I get is: This...

    Portable for 5.84?

    I downloaded your file, I get an error when trying to open it that says its not a valid win32 application. Its only 13kb in size.. maybe I didn't get it all.. let me try again. I think that program they have that tries to open rar files for you is what messed it up...

    Portable for 5.84?

    Humm.. I don't see an edit function? Anyway.. I forgot to mention, it did indeed also add an entry into the "add remove programs" in the uninstall portion of control panel.. it let me uninstall ok, but this would be unacceptable on a computer of which programs were not allowed....
