It's not portable...

@mcodex: do you know where does it writes settings?

hamasaki on 2020-11-13 22:53

Eraser v5.8.8

webfork on 16 May 2015
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by MISIIM

Eraser is a feature-rich tool to permanently delete sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it with random patterns. Includes a scheduler, free-space wipe, random number generation for better overwriting, page file wipe at shutdown, password-protected settings, and more. The program includes a wide variety of wiping mechanisms from very fast (only deleting the first and last 2kb) to extraordinarily slow (35-pass). Note that all but the most security-minded users should only need only the 1-pass "pseudo-random" wipe.

Alternatively, Eraser Portable is a PortableApps version.

Note: The 5.x branch is no longer supported. There is a 6.x branch available, but there is no official portable version for this branch and it requires the .NET framework.

Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No
Unicode support: No
License: GPL
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Eraser.exe.
What's new? Do not erase sparse, compressed or encrypted files when FL2KB erasure is selected to prevent disk corruption.
Fix Win32 Eraser builds to be truly Unicode builds.
A few 64-bit fixes.
Ensure that Eraser uses the latest runtimes packaged with the installer. This should fix hangs when using the Context menu.
Fixed the About dialog after migrating to Unicode
Sign all binaries packaged with the installer
Allow erasing UNC paths
Fixed memory exhaustion when doing a free space erase for FAT drives
Migrate non-Unicode custom erasure methods to the Unicode methods so that old custom erasure methods are preserved upon upgrade

Ensure that Eraser is not running when the Eraser setup is run

Peter: Yeah we've got something in the entry about that.

Eraser 5.8.8 Portable does not integrate to Windows shell on x64 systems (in my case- Windows 8 x64).

What is the "Control Send" method? This mode works now but where is this info being stored? (Where does it need to be deleted?)

Author of Shellfish on 2007-07-23 18:01

ControlSend uses the AutoIt ControlSend function. ControlSend sends keystrokes to a certian control. It probably will not be detected by a keylogger but it might.

Is somebody pulling our leg here? This program version is almost 2 and a half years old (July 2007)! "Direct paste" (never heard about anything like that) doesn't work at all. Obviously not worth even downloading, pure waste of time...

@rogerthedodger: you can download the PortableApps.com package. Extract or install it, the contents of the APP folder is all you need, delete the rest. After the first launching of IcoFX.exe the configuration files will be created

Rodger on 2013-01-06 10:04

small fonts (on the app itself) = @ Kermode
Found a solution !
Dowmoad 12noon Dispay Changer (free -> google): very nice prgram, helps me a lot with old programs on my new large screen !
Install. Go to folder where installed, make a shortcut from the cd.exe folder.
Rightclick on shortcut, open properties
Richtclick IcoFX.exe, open properties, highlight target command line, copy (Ctrl + c)
Go to THE END of the same line (target) in the IconFX properties, paste (Ctrl + v); leave a space between both (there are quotation marks at the beinning and at the end of both)
Go to the space and type (without quotation marks, but leaving again a space before, in between and at the end) "-width=1152 -height=864" (or any other screen size COMPATIBLE with your screen, e.g. 1600x 900 1027x768, etc; see help of dc to find out which screen sizes are compatible).
Close properties of both.
Change the name and icon of dc.exe to IcoFX.
That's it !
(When you close IcoFX, the screen will automatically return to its initial size, so the change onlw affcts this program !)

The busy XP screenshot doesn't do the app justice. Worthwhile app for icon creation and extraction. Main limitation of this version is the lack of 512px+ size support, which OSX and now Windows 10 support.

Correction of my entry at 2010-05-23 11:01
The version at Softpedia IS portable BUT it sets reg keys.

The download link is misleading, but many mirrors are on the web. I downloaded it from softpedia:
