That's normal. The 6.1 builds show start and finish times, which is more reassuring, so this is presumably what will happen in 6.2 when it appears.rarebear said:I have just started using the new stable Eraser build and when I view the task log on individual files erased there is nothing there.
Not implemented in Eraser 6, at least so far. Eraser 6 had a deliberate simplification of the user interface, but, IMO, there should be a confirmation dialogue for every task and the option to see a progress window (similar to Eraser 5).rarebear said:Also where is the more detailed window that shows how much information has been written over / left and time to completion ?
But will that still not show a blank pane if the task completes normally, with nothing to report?Joel said:Double-click the task as it runs.
That it is completed normally; the user (particularly the new user) is thereby reassured, and we don't get threads on the forum like this one. Actually, the start and finish times recorded in the 6.1 builds do the same thing, assuming (which I can't check just now) that they are in the log for both erasing and wiping.Joel said:If the task completes normally, what is there to report?
Depends on how you use the words. I like to use 'erasing' for targeted tasks (files and folders) and 'wiping' for free space. In theory at least, you could do a wipe without erasing anything ...Joel said:They do -- but isn't erasing equivalent to wiping :?
