FOUND IT. and I'm gunna fix it right now. The key was that you had a TrueCrypt drive which kinda messed up the disk enumerating process.Xanashi said:Disk 1 - 2 WD Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500 GB set up in a Raid 0, combined size 931 GB, NTFS, Internal, encrypted with truecrypt, for storage.
Disk 2 - WD RE WD2500YS 250 GB, NTFS, Internal, for installation of software.
Disk 3 - WD Raptor WD740ADFD 74 GB, NTFS, Internal, System Partition.
Disk 4 - Ipod 60 GB, FAT32, External, used as travel drive.
It's not supposed to cancel the task if you use the close button... perhaps there was an error?Xanashi said:3. Actually I was using the standard close button, but it canceled the task anyway. But with the new Hide button this will not be problem any longer, Thanks!
I'm really not sure, perhaps you could recommend a program for me? I'm quite certain that Eraser's one of its kind in terms of it being open-source security software.Xanashi said:4. That's a shame. As you can see, I still have an external FAT drive at my disposal and I use it a lot, when I travel around. Do you know if any of the competing "Sensitive data removal" softwares, have successfully implemented it? Not because I would convert away from Eraser (I'd rather give up using FAT), but to confirm that it is not possible to erase FAT in a efficient way in Vista.
My pleasure.Xanashi said:Thanks for patiently answering all my question, It is really appreciated.
Yep its a bug - thanks for reporting. I didn't factor the code out properly, my bad!mcmaster76 said:Hi,
Installed Eraser rc5 1114 on a clean fresh installation of Vista Ultimate 32-bit with all hardware and software drivers up-to-date. Wanted to do a quick freespace wipe so I ran a freespace wipe with cluster tips unchecked, using single-pass overwriting. Wipe completed without any errors but there were 48 of those gibberish files Eraser creates left at the root of the drive. Never had a problem like that with rc-4 (which I used a long time on my old windows installation) Only time it left those files was when Vista ran out of space and gave notices of it and back then all of those files were contained within a gibberish named folder like those filenames. They weren't all dumped in the root. Don't know if this is would be considered a bug or not but I just wanted to report it anyhow. What's your take on this ?
Wauw, amazing speed! great job, Joel!Joel said:FOUND IT. and I'm gunna fix it right now. The key was that you had a TrueCrypt drive which kinda messed up the disk enumerating process.

You got a point. I was a bit too fast with my statement. I was sure I had seen other freeware Secure deletion softwares, but that's the problem, they are only freeware and very outdated too.Joel said:I'm really not sure, perhaps you could recommend a program for me?

Thanks for reporting, the bug was due to a flaw in the function declaration that only affected x86: the bug has been fixed in r1148.mcmaster76 said:Another major bug: When in My Computer and I right click any drive it crashes Explorer with a C++ Runtime Error. I uninstalled Eraser and the problem went away. So I know it's caused by Eraser rc5.
It's not that erasing the FAT isn't impossible - v5 can do it, but only after re-implementing a system function (that is, the FAT file system) which increases maintenance cost and runs the risk of corrupting the hard drive beyond repair. I didn't want to do this for v6 because re-implementing low-level functions are dangerous and especially since v6 is written in a way high-level language. I was, however, considering to reuse the v5 FAT erasure code, but it's a pretty large task.Xanashi said:You got a point. I was a bit too fast with my statement.

I have last years edition of TuneUp Utilities installed, with an implemented eraser feature, that handles FAT32 file deletions very well, that's why the thought came to me in the first place, but not very helpful.
Is Eraser doing anything when you close the system tray? How long has Eraser been running, if you opened the main program before closing Eraser will it exit? Are tasks being run when you close Eraser?Xanashi said:1. When I close Eraser in the system tray it sometimes gets stuck, leaving the process running, if I right-click it again the context menu and Eraser freezes complete.
This has been fixed in r1132.Xanashi said:2. After X numbers of hours Eraser crashes, for no apparent reason, with the crash error "Eraser has stopped working".
