Erasing of encrypted files under Vista not possible?


New Member
When trying to erase encrypted files on Vista with shell extension for Windows Explorer I get the error message "Administrator privileges required". Running eraser.exe as administrator doesn't help. Neither the using of on-demand interface. If the target file is decrypted it can be erased without problem.

My environment: Vista Ultimate; Eraser 5.86; both groups Administrators and Users have full access rigths to the file; file atributes AE

Any hints?
Won't be removed from now on. Vista doesn't allow disk-level access on the system drive. It "seems" to be there but it won't work. Support has been removed in v6.
