Ccleaner wipe drive concern.

Recommended Posts

I am doing a singe pass zero wipe of my Imac 2tb drive. Started around 1am 02/10/13 and is still going at 10:39am 2/10/2013. Below is the message that it shows and has shown so far.

 

Detail- I can see the spinning next to it, no progress bar.

Started erase on disk0s2 Macintosh HD

Creating a temporary file

Securely erasing a file

 

I was just concerned that it is not working or stuck, I also have the trash bieng emptied.

 

Any help, thanks.

do you have a HDD or SSD for your drive. The MAC wipe process is just calling the OSX command for drivevwipe

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

I am having the same issue. CCleaner wipe has been running for almost 24 hours. The following message appears in the box -

 

Started erase on disk0s2 Untitled

Creating a temporary file

Securely erasing a file

 

When I try to get out of the program, I get the following message:

 

CCleaner cannot be closed until the Erase Free Space operation is complete.

 

This is a MacBook Air with flash storage.
