Data Shredder
« on: March 31, 2009, 01:54:26 PM »
I'm using data shredder for the first time. I chose the level with 3 passes. I understand it takes a long time. I ran it overnight and the progress bar is full but the process hasn't ended yet. Does anyone know if there's supposed to be a period of time between the progress bar being filled and the process ending?

Depends on the size of the file I guess.

Yeah, that's not supposed to happen.  Maybe it's hanging on some zipped or compressed folders?

Maybe he can look at his log and see if there are any errors that stop the scan, or at least let us know what file is causing the scan not to finish.
