Why does Eraser fill my drives?


New Member
I regularly run Eraser on 4 internal drives, and I always know when it has just finished one because it will be full, and I will find a folder in the main directory taking up all of my free space, and I of course delete it and empty my trash. I understand that the program works by writing to your free space, and I would just like to understand why it can't delete it afterwards like it is suppose to. Very annoying.
Please read the FAQ post on Common Eraser Questions. A full answer on how to deal with this is there.
