More C drive Space Used after using Eraser


New Member
Currently using Eraser 5.7. After using Eraser my used space on the hard drive increases by about 1.5 GB. Following the Eraser FAQs I can eliminate the extra hard drive space used by clearing all my Restore Points.

I am assuming that the Temp file(~erafswd.temp) created by Eraser is not being deleted and somehow ends up in a System Restore point.

I have two questions:

1) By deleting all the Restore points doesn't the ~erafswd.temp file get dumped back on the free space on the hard drive thereby putting a lot of the data the user wanted erased back on the hard drive???

2) What would happen to the ~erafswd.temp file if Eraser did not successfully delete it on completion of the Eraser operation if System Restore was turned off before running Erase??
