If you have selected the Windows Explorer extension during setup, Eraser will install a context menu entry when right-clicking the following items:

  • Files and/or folders
  • Disk Drives in the Computer folder
  • Recycle Bin

Windows Explorer Extension Hovering over the Eraser menu will show a submenu containing the items Erase and Erase on Restart. If you right-clicked a drive, you also have the option of Erasing Free Space from the context menu. If there are no files in the Recycle Bin, the Eraser context menu will be greyed out.

Selecting any of the Erase options will send a new Task to the running Eraser program (or it will be started if it is not running) and notifications will appear in the system notification area when tasks complete.
