Eraser Drop

Hello.

This is my first post here.

I've been using portable apps for donkey's years, and use them on my main PC a lot in preference to installable apps (I never got over the ways of 3.11 Wink ). One app I've been using is EraserDrop, and whilt i like it, is it possible to make EraserDrop unload from memory after performing a task? At present, a little tray icon appears and stays loaded whilst the drop target icon is visible. I would much prefer a simple drag and drop affair, to an icon on the desktop. Perhaps a CLI version then. As it is, EraserDrop is permanently in memory and unnecessarily consuming anywhere between 3 and 10+ MB of memory.

Whilst I appreciate that EraserDrop is a portable app, I have been mainly using it for my desktop. However, I've reverted to FileShredder (I like EraserDrop much more though) simply because there's no memory overhead when it is installed. And before anyone says anything, I used to use Eraser, for years in fact, but when it 'exchanged hands' the GUI was messed about with, it became very buggy, and after some hair pulling I conceded it was time to look elsewhere...hence EraserDrop and FileShredder.

Anyhow, that's the request.

Thanks,

Simon

Right Click

Try right-clicking on the EraserDropPortable floating icon and choose "Exit".

hm

I think he means an icon where I can drop files onto, it deletes them and closes EraserDrop afterwards but the icon remains visible and restarts EraserDrop once I drop another onto the icon.
Afaik this isnt possible with EraserDrop.

Sorry

I misunderstood the OP's intent.

Still, if he wants to have it active only when he's using it, he can choose to exit when he is finished with the job at hand.

Yes, that's correct, Simeon,

Yes, that's correct, Simeon, that's exactly what I meant.

Thanks.
