Hi all, I'm taking my laptop to the shop for a day and have removed all my documents and my Firfox book marks. These have been backed up onto cd.

I've also downloaded and installed Erasrer to clear the free space on the HD.

I guess its just me but I've looked in the help on Eraser but I cannot figure out how to clean the free space.

Could someone please give me an idiots guide type talk through on how to write over the free space. Thankyou.

Or suggest a simpler eraer type program.

I only want to wipe the blank space on my HD, NOT the whole of the HD.

Many thanks,

Open Eraser, click on new task, the window that opens ,(task properties), leave it set at unused space on drive, but change it to your hd. Click ok, and away it goes.
