Ruined My Operating System


New Member
Positive I set it to erase the unused space of a drive (340GB free space). Win 8.1 64 bit HP laptop. I ran eraser about twenty hours and it froze after around 6 hours or so. The system would not reboot. I managed to recover by restoring from before running eraser.

Anyone else experience this? I doubt I will run it again but might try it on another computer.
Are you certain there is not a HDD issue? A free-space erase is one certain way to expose any HDD errors.
