Wipe Deleted File Data

Post by FAM07 » Sun Sep 08, 2013 4:10 pm

Hi,
The issue is related to Wipe Deleted File Data tool. "Wipe all files in the Recycle Bin..." does not work. It stay in "Initializing...". Then I have to click on Cancel to stop the operation. Please see the attached image. (Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit).

I want to comment that the problem was in a folder (not hide) called "$Recycle.Bin", in C:\. I had to delete that folder (with Unlocker 1.9.2 program). After that AU worked fine wiping the Recycle Bin.

Hi,

How much time did you give the 'Initializing' part to complete? During this phase, the program is enumerating the files inside the bin to start the actual wipe process. The 'initializing' time may wary for different users.

In that situation the start time was undefined, I never got to initialize it. But the problem was the described in Post #2. Thanks.
