it may also help to run ccleaner I debug mode, see stickied topic at the top of this board, and posting the log. Is the drive internal or external. Access denied usually means the drive (even temporarily) shutdown/died so became nonexistent and cause the error, I have this error when I try to wipe a 1tb WD Mybook because those drives shutdown when too much read/write hits them (never again with a fanless External ;) )

WinApp2.ini:

 

Yes I have write access. Just coppied small file to the (f) drive.

 

Do not understand "in the disk portion of CCleaner". Iam using the latest version of the free CCleaner.

 

Nergal:

 

Drive is internal and is running fine.

 

Do not know how to run CCleaner in debug mode. I assume it is part of the full version of CCleaner.

Thank you Alan :)

 

Hurley, what winapp meant by disk section is the normal ccleaner section, as opposed to what you used (the full wiper section in tools).

 

is the drive a hard drive or a, newer, SSD?

How many wipe are you running (1,7,32)?

Are you doing full wipe or just freespace? We've been assuming full wipe, maybe erroneously, because you mentioned there was no OS. Please correct us if we are wrong.

what is the age of the drive? Also size.

Does this still occur if you format the drive the attempt to wipe it?

How far into the process is it getting? Is there currently anything at all (including hidden/system files) on this drive.

again I'd love to see the debug log if at all possible :)

Your question, "Does this still occur if you format the drive the attempt to wipe it" set me on the path to fixing my problem (Give your self a gold star). I used a bootable Super F Disc to check the old 250 gig Maxtor IDE HHD. After running Sup[er F Disc it reported that the partion was larger than the physical size of the drive, Don't under stand how that happened amd still allowed me to move all the exiting files to a larger HHD I had laying around. To fix the drive, I removed the MBR, made re-partioned the drive and re-formated (the program would only let me format Fat32) the drive. The CCleaner jumped all over the drive and ran the 3X wipe to perfection. First time I have done this and was supprised at how long it took. The old drive has been reformated to NTFS and is ready to be safely be given to a friend to replace as a replacement for his crashed hard drive in his computer. For my trouble I get his old drive to use a a test mule to try and learn how to recover information from an old damaged HHD. I hope the new task will be is as much fun as it has been in learning how to properly wipe a drive. I'm a disabled retired 65 year old with nothing better to do. Any suggestions on my next journey will be welcomed.

 

Thanks to everone with there willingness to help an old Fart.
