    I have somewhat of a problem here. I used to used Necrofile pro to securely erase the free space on my drive but I have lost the registration number and can no longer use it. So, I am in the marjet for a replacement but I don't know where to begin. I have used Eraser 5.8 and I do like it, but I prefer SecureDelete which does not offer secure erasing for free space. Also, Eraser's scheduling option is rather limited. Does anyone have any opinion as to which program I should try?

    Did you try emailing Necrofile pro customer service?
    If you have an order number or the email address you used to order, perhaps they could send you the registration number again.

    Yes, I've tried to contact Necrofile support several times but I haven't received any respose. I've even tried contact the third party vendor that I bought it from and still haven't heard anything.

    Texcritter and Tommy--- Thanks very much. This seems to be exactly what I was looking for. Any idea how it stacks up against others? Also, I use this command for one individual parttion: " -p 35 -z c: If there any way I can make it to work on all partitions, one right after the other; -p 35 -z c: d: e: does not work.

    Write a batch file:
    File extension has to be *.bat, and save it in the same directory where sdelete is locatet. Execute the bat file. That's it :)
