EraserDrop Portable can run from a cloud folder, external drive, or local folder without installing into Windows. It's even better with the PortableApps.com Platform for easy installs and automatic updates.

Description

EraserDrop's target accepts any combination of files and folders. The target can be moved about the screen by holding the LEFT SHIFT key, LEFT-CLICKING the target, and dragging. The window position is saved, but will be corrected if it goes beyond screen boundaries - ie if you move from a screen with a high resolution to one with a lower resolution.

The image for the drop target can be changed on-the-fly. Simply choose a PNG graphic you like, place it in the Data\images directory, and select the image from the Open File dialog. The window will be sized accordingly. Transparency is supported!

Hide the target by right-clicking and choose 'Hide', or press the hotkey. To bring it back, click the tray icon or use the hotkey (default is unset). The hotkey can be defined from the context menu. See the readme for details.

EraserDrop also includes the ability to wipe the Recycle Bin and wipe drive free space. Right-click and use the 'Tasks' submenu.

App Notes

Flash Drive Note: Nearly all modern flash drives use wear leveling to spread write operations out over a device. This interferes with Eraser (and other secure deletion utilities) ability to wipe single files. Wiping an entire drive or erasing a file and then wiping free space may be a little more secure but still not delete all data, though it will put additional wear on your drive.
