Unbelievable software - Not simple nice interface, Scheduling tasks. I added a task and chose a simple erase method and ran it immediately but it didnt do anything. I tried this 2 times and also used 2 different machines, really disappointing. Ive uninstalled this software.

5.8x was better. Framework 3.5 is required. Worse GUI, Erasing of recycle bin fails. Erasing-method is harder to change.

I go back to 5.8x
