Thanks for your reply. I had found the note on
www.robertmoir.com about Eraser.
Eraser has been running on a 4.8 GB .vhd (16 GB to the
guest OS) for 5 1/2 hours and it still has 1/4 of the way
to go. It's running on a 3 GHz PC giving the VPC window
equal CPU. The latest Eraser doesn't seem to offer a way
to shut off the built-in Erase methods (Gutmann - 35
passes, US DoD 5220.22-M 7 + 3 passess) even though I
only want to changed the unused disk space to the 000.
I would like to hear more about the ghost method and how
I might get the ghost boot disk.
Thanks for your knowledge and experience.
