Simple and efficient cleanup tool 5 stars by DarrinSingleton Jul 16, 2015 (Read all my 5 reviews)
Eraser definitely does what it promises to: efficient and safe cleanup. For the absolute majority of cases, it is sufficient. For better safety (or less paranoia), I would advise to a) erase your temporary files folder on shutdown with Eraser, and b) use encrypted filesystem such as encfs to even more reduce chances to recover whatever sensitive data you could have on disk. show Review details
Eraser does it's job 5 stars by SeSorrow Apr 30, 2011 (Read all my 29 reviews)
Never knew I needed this, til I found it. Does a great job of erasing on demand with a high level of destruction. You won't be able to recover files with this one. Interface is beautiful and couldn't be easier to use and understand. Can be set on a schedule to delete files/folders automatically which is great for me. I use to it delete the recycle bin on a schedule. show Review details
Version 6 is not as good as v5 3 stars by macantab Apr 20, 2010 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I tried upgrading from V5.8 to V6.0, didn't like it, and so have reinstalled V5.8 again. I use Eraser only from the context menu add-on, and found the changes in V6 annoying, such as an icon in the tray (notification area) that was no use to me at all. I couldn't find any option in V6 to get rid of it. Changes to the context menu add-on also didn't make V6 any easier to use. show Review details
