"'Erase Free Space' Erased 25 GBs of disc space!"
The cleaner worked just as well on my OS X 6.8 Core 2 Duo Mini as it does on Windows machines, giving me back about 3 GBs of disc space.
Erasing Free Space erased over 25 GBs of disk space. Started with a little over 55 GBs and stopped it from running when it got down to only 29.34 GBs of free space left.
No idea where it went.
Nothing in support about this. No way to contact them without using the wrong form (which I did) or buying the product per their instructions to "click on the icon below" which was a 'Buy' button.
No idea how I'll get this space back.
Pretty scary little utility when erasing free space.This was put in a review of the Mac version. How it got to windows is beyond me just as the missing free space is.
No options in Menu bar.
Takes away free space.
Cleans caches, etcetera just fine but I won't be trying it again until they can explain where the free space went and how to retrieve it.
It made a backup file of some sort but there is no documentation about that that I could find.

I talked to a Windows user friend that told me to let it run. It does that with disc space until it's done. Then it's freed up.
Nice if they'd have put that notice somewhere. If they did, I missed it.
