Very Fast and then (almost full stop)


New Member
I'm running Win7 64 bit. Erasing the unused hard drive (920 Gb). Eraser ran 3.5 hours and cleaned 905 Gb and then stopped (I think). 24 hours later it is adding 1 kb/sec to a random file on the root drive ... don't know how long it's been doing this, but at that rate I will be much older before it cleans the remaining unused 5.5 Gb on the drive. Reading some of the earlier posts suggests that I caused the problem by launching IE or the task manager while Eraser was running. What I want to try is to stop Eraser and then restart it so it can get a fresh start on what is left to clean on the drive. Do you think that's a good approach or should I just let Eraser keep chugging along? Thanks for your help. Fred
