Changing the Number of Passes


New Member
How do I change how many passes Eraser 5.7 makes. In the General Options, I see that it says 35 passes, but it does not allow me to change that number. The Department of Defense only requires 6 passes for a file to be considered securely erased, and for the sake of time, I think my household can afford to cut it short of 35,lol. Thanks in advance for any help,


Also, I would like to see an ability added to the next eraser. Again, for the sake of time, is it possible to securely erase all files selected by taking passes group by group? i.e. can eraser do its job properly by making one pass on all files, then repeating untill the indicated number of passes has been reached. I feel that this tool would be more usefull if this feature were added.
