"Illegal characters in path"


New Member

I am trying to erase an external hard drive and receiving the subject error "Illegal characters in path". The directory is Z:\Volumes\Test for the hard drive that I am using. As a side note, I am using a MAC with WIN XP w/ Service Pack 3 installed under Parallels. The hard drive is set up as a network drive. Any thoughts?

Is there anything relevant in the task log? I'd like to know the full path of whatever file is giving the trouble. Also, not being a Mac expert, please can you tell me what file system the external drive is using? Eraser only works for sure with the Windows file systems (NTFS and FAT).
