Recycling Madness


New Member
(I have just downloaded and installed Eraser. I'm running Windows 7 IE8 as an administrator.) I had, I thought, one simple jpeg in my recycle bin. I'm simultaneously cleaning empty space on an external drive (35 pass Gutman) and was deleting the jpeg in the bin using the simple 1 pass pseudorandom option. Instead of the .jpeg I was getting a LOT of stuff scanned and erased that I could not see in the bin. I don't know what is being erased so I stopped the recycle bin erasing. Anybody know what was happening? Is that centuries old trash being gleaned and erased? Thanks in advance!
Yep, it is. Sometimes the Empty Recycle Bin command leaves files behind. Eraser will get rid of those.
