Eraser closes after short time


New Member
I use Eraser 5.82 on Windows XP with a 19.54 GB HD which has 5.51 gb of free space. After starting free space wipe out in the Gutman method, after a short time I get the message:' unknown software exception 0xc0000409 at location 0x1001a214', then the program closes. Can someone please tell me how to avoid that?
In addition, is there a method for securely preventing deleted file restoration without erasing my enire drive?
