Crash near the end of free space wipe on FAT32


New Member
I'm using Eraser and get a crash near the end of a pseudorandom free space wipe on a 4.69 GiB FAT32 partition (2.11 GiB free) on Windows 7 32-bit.
I could reproduce the crash several times.
When I try to access the partition in Windows Explorer after Eraser has crashed, I get "X:\ is not accessible.\n\nAccess is denied." (drive letter is an example, line breaks escaped by me).
When I choose to close the program in the Windows crash report dialog, the partition becomes accessible again. The crash appears to happen at a stage where Eraser's temporary "fill-files" have already been deleted.

Here's the probably not very helpful Windows crash report:

Let me know how I can help you debug this if you intend to fix it.
