    An Interesting Challenge.

    From a site you mentioned on another thread. http://www.forensicfocus.com/index.php? ... pic&t=3387 http://www.securityfocus.com/brief/888?ref=rss Craig Wright seems to know what he is doing and I don’t think I need to disagree with him. :D

    How could Eraser be a better anti forensic tool ?

    Hi KrisM :) :roll: Well done. :) Prior to installing V6 Beta you may have found the following links useful. Instructions 1 Instructions 2 Quality Beta testers are hard to find. :roll: Are you actually saying that you downloaded Beta software, that was not designed to run on your...

    Eraser 5.8.7-beta 4 Standard and Portable

    Don’t worry about it, 5.8.7 Beta 4 will probably be the final anyway. I have been using it since its release and have had no problems. :wink: It is certainly better than all other previous V5 releases. The only reason it isn’t final now is that Garrett hasn’t signed it and Joel is awaiting a...

    Does Eraser Rename File Names When Erasing?

    If this is a .NET thing could Eraser have a standalone app.exe downloaded and installed in the Eraser directory that users could double click and wipe the FAT directory ? Even better would it be possible that V6 could run it ? I understand this is an ugly programming hack but it is better than...

    Does Eraser Rename File Names When Erasing?

    Hi Joel, Yes I understand, I didn’t phrase my question properly. :oops: I am interested if the clearing of FAT and MFT directory entries is working in V6. I remember you said that it couldn’t be done with FAT because of either .Net restrictions or Vista or something like that. I am sure...

    Eraser 5.8.7-beta 4 Standard and Portable

    V5 was good, very good in its day. However it suffered patch on patch repairs. V6 is a total re-write by someone who knows what they are doing. Use V5 by all means, it works ! Eraser V6 won’t have many if any new functionalities until V6.2.

    Eraser 5.8.7-beta 4 Standard and Portable

    :D I understand the desire for minimal installations. I like the minimalist approach ! However if you are down to the last 500MB of drive space I suggest you invest in a new hard drive or even a flash drive. If however your concern is the 500MB .Net installation I am right behind you...

    Two different download pages?

    Hi mfishman Eraser and the Eraser website are in a transitional phase. The first of your links takes you to the old Eraser site and the second takes you to the new site. Eraser V5 latest version is here. Eraser V6 (Still being tested) is here.

    Eraser history is a privacy leak.

    Thank you :) , will it clear them or overwrite them ? It’s just that I found it funny that when a user erases a file in the hope that all traces of it are removed from the drive in question and Eraser makes an effort to clear a file name from the MFT that Eraser then writes the file name in its...
