Suggestions please for a free erasure programme.... I have tried Eraser 5.86 but although it says it is running, nothing seems to be happening and I don't have a progress bar to give me the confidence it is functioning....

TIA

TIA

Ccleaner put everything into the recycle bin then go to advanced settings and set it to DOD 3 passes or higher. Better still format and reinstall for more secure deletion

Give boot and nuke a whirl.
