Can't start erasing


New Member
I have used Eraser one time before and then it worked, but now I get this message in the task log: Session: den 16 maj 2010 22:20:20
Error The program does not have the required permissions to erase the unused space on disk. Run the program as an administrator and retry the operation.

I am already running the program as the administrator, so what do I do?

This is one of the more common questions, and it is fully dealt with in the FAQ (link below). There is an 'index' topic at the top of the FAQ list, which has a links to the more common questions, including yours.

Chances are that either you are either not running the program 'elevated', or you have attempted to do so without closing the running instance of Eraser from the system tray icon (right-click and select 'Exit Eraser').
