    "Impossible to Uninstall Completely!!!"

    April 8, 2010  |   By SuperSport1966

    Version: Eraser 6.0.6.1376

    Pros

    It likely erases what you ask it to. I cleaned a Drive I was sending back for warranty repair, but then when I wanted to remove it from my system...

    Cons

    No Uninstaller. I tried to uninstall using the instructions in the PDF file, but it kept coming back. I had to remove it manually, but even then, it took many tries using Reg Editor and Killing Processes until I finally got all of it out (I think!).

    Summary

    Do Not install this program if you ever plan to remove it.

    "Very useful, does what I need it to. I trust this."

    March 29, 2010  |   By drekjohnc

    Version: Eraser 6.0.6.1376

    Pros

    Works as described

    Cons

    Don't fully understand how to use all the features and they are not totally self descriptive. Could use a better help feature or tutorial. Maybe I just missed it.

    Summary

    I trust this item to do what it is intended for.

    "Buggy and Unreliable"

    March 7, 2010  |   By GradyPhilpott

    Version: Eraser 6.0.6.1376

    Pros

    I think it erases file sometimes.
    It's all there is that I know about.

    Cons

    New interface is a mess.
    You don't know what it's erasing if anything. Locks up frequently.
    Sometimes need to delete file and erase from Recycle Bin.
    Buggy

    Summary

    I have W7-64. The older Eraser worked just fine. The other day I noticed an update for the software and now I have this buggy, unreliable software that seems to be run by a high school computer class.

    Now I can't even find the previous version.

    ***?

    Updated on Mar 7, 2010

    Based on another review, I downloaded 5.8.8 and now I have the old familiar interface back and it seems to work fine, without all the lockups, crashes, and general chaos created by the 6.x versions.

    Thank God!

    "Great program, but prone to crashing"

    February 21, 2010  |   By EclipseWebJS2

    Version: Eraser 6.0.6.1376

    Pros

    This program can erase anything you throw at it. And of course it's the same Eraser program we're all used to -- but they made it where it's Windows 7 compatible and added several erasing pattern choices.

    Cons

    Try to be careful not to schedule an erase task when working with the options or it will freeze up! If you're in the middle of an erase job you could risk losing files!

    Summary

    With so many pattern selections, it's easy to get lost. It's best to read the PDF manual first (requires Adobe Reader). Also, this program doesn't tamper with hard links, compressed files, system files, encrypted files, symbolic links, files that require permission to modify ... call it a safety feature but if it didn't erase it to begin with, and something goes nuts with Eraser, you're probably safe, but you might risk losing some of your own personal files in the process if the freeze-up took place while it was cleaning cluster tips in your Documents folders. (There is a slight chance that any data loss will occur, but ALWAYS back up your data!)

    "Not an upgrade"

    February 12, 2010  |   By dangnad1

    Version: Eraser 6.0.6.1376

    Pros

    Did not install 6. Instead installed 5.8.8 which works great.

    Cons

    Relied on reviewer comments which gave v6.0 thumbs down.

    Summary

    Eraser (about v4.0) had worked without a hitch on my Vista machine until a few days ago when the OS said it couldn't load Eraser. So I went to the website, downloaded 6.0.6 but I went back and read some of the reviewer comments and decided the upgrade had actually taken away some functionality of the older versions.

    So I didn't install 6.0.6, went back and downloaded 5.8.8, installed it and it works perfectly. I especially like "Erase secure move" and that you can do this from the context menu plus regular Eraser actions too. Version 5 is great software. Don't know about 6.0.
