I have just downloaded Eraser (18.104.22.1683) for the first time, and I'm self-taught on the computer, so I'm no expert. How can I erase email deleted in Windows Live Mail? I don't see the file in Explorer and don't know what it would be called for a search. However, Windows periodically offers to compress files when I close the Live Mail program, which I always accept. Do they mean the deleted files, and does this make them unrecoverable--I hope?
