ok i have already formatted my hard drive just recently and i dont want to do the nuke thing. does eraser have an option to scan the hard drive and then remove the already formatted data with out endangering the other data that is in use.
I'm not quite sure what you mean here, but I can take a shot at answering your question. Eraser does have the option to erase free space from a drive, that will effectively erase everything that has been deleted without touching current (no deleted) data. Is that what you wanted? To do this you can either right-click on your drive and select 'Erase Unused Space,' or add the drive to the current task within the main Eraser executable. Hope that helps.
