    Hello, the way the scrubber works is by creating and inflating a temporary file under your hard drive. This file is created 3 times, ones writing 0's on your hard drive, a second time with nothing but 1's, and a third with random 0's and 1's. Each time the file is expanded to fill your hard drive, it is deleted. If the program is forcibly closed using the task manager, it leaves the files on your hard drive, eating your space. All you have to do is to delete the folder 'EFSTMPWP' on the hard drive you scrubbed. This folder contains the temporary files which expands to wipe your drive. I hope this helps in regaining the 30GB on your drive.
