    I can't install this new version 6.2.0.2969. It says that it is not a valid Win32 program. I am running WinXP.

    Before use "Erase Unused Space",you must exit eraser in tray.

    This is not a reliable program. When you shred something, it needs to work. (Period). There are no exceptions to security. Like the others said, I also get errors and incomplete tasks. Loading the program with admin privileges makes no difference. The program has not been updated in over a year and there is only one guy is working on it. (That's a problem right there). I'm assuming it's not open source since no one else is working on it. So why is it on source forge? And why on earth is this program getting so many good reviews. It's unreliable. Tested under XP Pro, Win7 so far.

    Doesn't work. You create a schedule to clear unused space and it always silently fails because it doesn't have permissions, even if you run it as administrator. Then you open it and the scheduled tasks have randomly disappeared. It would be nice if it worked.
