  • End of support for Eraser 5.x
  • With this release, as announced earlier, support for Eraser 5 will be discontinued. Eraser developers will also not entertain requests to fix problems with the 5.x codebase, as it has reached the end of its useful life. v5 has served the community well, but the age of the code is already showing and the associated problems (of software incompatiblity) have been in recent years difficult (and expensive) to resolve.
  • Eraser 5 will still be downloadable from SourceForge, and patches can still be submitted (but may not be applied), however no more official builds will be made available in future and support on the official channels (e.g. Support Forum and Trac) for Eraser 5 will cease. 5.8.8 will be the last officially released Eraser 5 version from The Eraser Project.
  • Download/Hashes
  • It is important to note that users downgrading from 6.1 should delete their Task Lists (%APPDATA%\Eraser 6\Task List.ersx) before running Eraser 6.0.x as that will result in a crash of 6.0.x builds. If you are upgrading from an earlier 6.0.x build, and especially if you have defined custom erasure methods or Plausible Deniability files, if upon upgrading Eraser refuses to start after the upgrade you can try deleting the task list (the same file as mentioned earlier) and if that fails, the HKCU\Software\Eraser\Eraser6 registry key. Deleting the latter will result in a reset of the Eraser settings to defaults.



Muutokset v6.0.5.1114 RC5 - v6.0.6.1376

  • Eraser 6 stable has been released after being for 2 years in development. Eraser 6 sports a completely revamped user interface, and Windows XP/Vista/7 support out of the box. Eraser 6 now allows users to use the context menu in Windows Explorer to erase Unused Space on drives with UAC on under Windows Vista and 7. The On-Demand and Scheduler panes in Eraser 5 has been replaced with the integrated Task Scheduler in Eraser 6 which allows for simplified management of tasks. The biggest and most significant change since rc5 is the addition of FAT directory cleaning and various usability improvements.
  • Changelog
  • Revision Description Author
  • 1130 Progress dialog improvements Joel
  • 1131 Deal with cluster tip erasure failures more robustly
  • When a user does a folder erasure, delete all empty subfolders of the target if they are empty after the erase regardless of whether the folder should be deleted when empty Joel

  • 1133 Create a Hide button for the progress dialog
  • Relabelled tab order for the progress dialog Joel

  • 1163, 1164 Allow eraser to be called from the Run dialog Joel
  • 1165, 1166 Created a new type of task - Manual tasks which run only on demand. The distinction between manual and run-once tasks are that tasks meant to run only once will be run and if it completes successfully the task will be deleted. Manually run tasks will never be automatically deleted. Joel
  • 1185 Fixed crash when erasing FAT file systems. Joel
  • 1186 Certain file names which could not be erased from the context menu previously can now be erased. Joel

  • 1287, 1288 NTFS MFT Cleaning improvements. Joel
  • 1296 Allow many files to be dragged into the Eraser Window. Joel
  • 1297 Erase MFT resident files before expanding the file to clear the cluster. This makes sure MFT resident files do not move around the MFT. Joel
  • 1299 When selecting too many files to erase from the Eraser context menu in Windows Explorer display a helpful error message instead of failing without any reason. Joel
  • 1304 Fixed Eraser being unable to exit when started at logon. Joel
  • 1317 Allow an elevated instance of Eraser to be controlled remotely by the same user. This allows the user to use the context menu extension even when Eraser is running as an Administrator. Joel
  • 1318 Fixed crash when deleting multiple tasks Joel
  • 1320 Added Italian localisation support Joel
  • 1321 Compile Warning fixes Joel
  • 1323 Don't check the SFC filelist if the given path name is longer than 255 characters Joel

  • 1355 Fixed updater crash Joel
  • 1365-1368, 1373 More Italian localisation work; added support for Shell Extension translations Andrea
  • 1369-1372 Implemented Shell Extension translation switching (controlled from the Eraser Settings page) Joel
  • Retirement of Eraser 5
  • This release of Eraser brings about sad news for some - Eraser 5 support will end after the release of Eraser 6.0.7. Technically, since this Eraser build is the 6th release of the version 6 this is Eraser 6.0.6. Thus, the next release of Eraser will see the end of Eraser 5 support. This is mainly to ensure that critical bugs within Eraser 6 are fixed before Eraser 5 is retired.
  • The reason for not supporting the old code is that the old code was not designed to run on the operating systems of today and functions do not work as expected. Eraser 6 was redesigned to ensure that it will match the coding standards and fit into the software ecosystem like any other "modern" application.



Muutokset v6.0.3.847 RC3 - v6.0.4.875 RC4

  • 850 Empty recycle bin after we are done with erasures so the icon is updated. Joel
  • 850 Erase only the recycle bin for the current user Joel
  • 851 Don't show secure move entry (currently unimplemented) Joel
  • 852 Fixed grammatical error in about text Joel
  • 853 About dialog links to our new site Joel
  • 854 Allow users to create new tasks by right-clicking empty portions of the scheduler Joel
  • 854 Removed unused entries from the Scheduler toolbar menu Joel
  • 855 Folders in the plausible deniability list are now properly utilised Joel
  • 856 Faster about box drawing algorithm Joel
  • 858-859 Allow one-time tasks to be automatically removed upon successful completion Joel
  • 859 Fixed another grammatical error in the scheduler Joel
  • 860 Fixed the bootstrapper for 64-bit architectures. Also fixes the Shell extension for 64-bit Windows Joel
  • 861-862 Fixed Vista shell extension icons. We lost the alpha channel using the old conversion method Joel
  • 863 Task deletions will now require user confirmation (as per Windows and v5) Joel
  • 864 Inform the user that there are no updates or plugins to download when the user invokes the updater Joel
  • 865 Don't allow the user to select invalid folder paths, eg. the Printers folder in remote network shares Joel
  • 866 Fixed spurious crash upon adding tasks using the shell extension Joel
  • 867 Implemented automatic elevation when unused free space erasures are requested from the shell extension. A quick note: what this does is the request for unused space erasures automatically elevate themselves. However, since the erasures are still done by the running Eraser instance which may not have been elevated, the erasures may still fail. The behaviour is however different when there is no Eraser instance running: the spawned instance of Eraser will automatically be elevated. Joel
  • 868 Show an error message when the user cancels the elevation request, instead of throwing out an "unknown error" Joel
  • 870 All binaries are now timestamped on top of being signed Joel
  • 871 Error codes should be better dealt with now, we use the Marshaler which is built into .NET for error handling

Muutokset v5.8.8 Beta 1 - v5.8.8

  • Eraser 5.8.8 is released. This release is mainly meant to fix the disk corruption which results from running a first/last 2KB erase on a sparse file as well as to fix the context menu causing Explorer to hang when installed with certain software which also inserts a context menu item.
  • Do note that the Eraser 5.x series will be retired (i.e. unmaintained) after the release of Eraser 6.0.7. See complete details in the Eraser 6 announcement.

  • Implemented Eraser 5 Unicode support.



Muutokset v5.86 - v5.86a



Muutokset v5.84 - v5.85

  • Maintenance Release



Muutokset v6.1.0.2284 Beta - v6.0.10.2620

  • Updated Italian translation
  • Updated LZMA SDK for Bootstrapper to use the beta 9.22 SDK which is the only one available from 7-zip
  • Improved Recycle Bin support for non-NTFS drives on Windows
  • Fixed Scheduler display bug where tasks added using the Shell Context Menu could appear in the schedule as Not Queued even if it was configured to run automatically, if a task was already running
  • Fixed dereferencing of non-volume reparse points. Erasing files in earlier versions when a reparse point was in a path could cause Eraser to refuse erasing the file
  • Disable all entropy mixing algorithms except SHA-1 so that Eraser can continue to function even when FIPS mode is enabled under Windows XP
