    I just saw it on softpedia. So I thought I would try the portable version.

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-SOFTWARE/Security/Secure-cleaning/Freeraser-Portable.shtml

    But it FAILED to install or run. Claims it cannot on my PC and says it's probably cause I am running NTFS or don't have enough disk space, even though I have 300GB free! Silly message! REMOVED IT!

    I then tried the normal version and it installed, however, it didn't offer to place an icon on Desktop which is annoying, and it doesn't offer to add itself to right clicking on file! So I REMOVED that too, and so that's a Thumbs down from me. :thumbd:

    It has promise but needs more work on it. Looks nice though.

    But I went back to using EraserDropPortable as it's more informative about the deleting wipes etc..and at least the portable version runs, unlike Freeraser portable:
