Have used Eraser without problems for years. This weekend I put together a new system and jumped from 32 bit xp to 64 bit win7. I downloaded the latest Eraser (5.8.7) and since then I can't erase anything (access is denied) on my external NTFS HD. Doesn't matter what type of file it is. None of them have anything in common, beyond being on the same HD. Eraser works perfectly on my internal drives. Have run as administrator but to no avail. I found an old thread that mentioned this was an issue but wondered if there was any kind of workaround.
