Editors' Review

+
A few minor complaints aside, this free file shredder is by and large a solid find. Eraser's all-business interface won't win any design awards, but it's mostly convenient to use, allowing you to add files or folders to be deleted via drag-and-drop transfers. However, since the program lacks a dedicate deletion button or icon, you'll have to dig through the menu items to actually erase data. This misstep is somewhat negated by the fact that Eraser integrates into the Windows' context menu, letting you shred files via a right click. We're glad to see the program lets you choose from four secure government-sanctioned deletion algorithms, and we appreciate the inclusion of a scheduler, handy for routinely wiping free disk space. In our tests, Eraser got rid of a 1GB file in 10 minutes--impressive, considering we employed the most secure deletion method. Anyone seeking to eradicate documents for good should take a long look at this freebie.

I've used Eraser for many months maybe even a year in Windows 8.1. Now that I've switched to Windows 10 I'll be upgrading my Eraser software.

Cons

Tasks sometimes don't get deleted out of its task list but the tasks where completed.

None. Doesn't work at all. I finally download software from giveumore.com to wipe my computer. Though it is not free, but very clean and easy to use.

Cons

Not user friendly! Beware adware.
