wolf5370 Posted August 20, 2013 Report Share Posted August 20, 2013 Windows 7 Ultimate X64 - 4GB - 1Tb/512Gb dual HDD - Avira Premium 2013 Antivirus (up to date) - all windows updates to date. I have used Reg and Disk cleaner apps for years - downloaded 365 (Free) yesterday. Disk Eraser showed 'found many recoverable files' as expected on both drives. Run eraser on 'DOD 5220.22 M 3 passes' over night. After 7 hours it was stuck on 1minute 22 seconds erasing (this did not move over time - Task Manager showed no activity including IOs over this time) - tried "STOP" button, but this did nothing. Had to kill process in task manager. Reran 365 and Disk Eraser still shows 'found many recoverable files'. So, in short - this is not working at all - locks up/crashes and does not remove the files in earlier passes (otherwise they would not be visible on rerun). All other software was halted - scheduled Virus Scan was cancelled to ensure no interference - computer was not touched for those 7 hours during failed run. FYI: Am interested in up grading to Pro - but need basic functions (free ones) to work before spending money on the Pro. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
