Hurray! The first bug found

February 27, 2009
Dear Freeraser users,

We have to admit that we are not perfect, we are trying, though 🙂

We were reported the bug in the version It is not critical issue, however it is a bug and we want you to know about it.
The bug appears only on Windows XP machines, so if you have Vista you will not feel it.
For those who are using Freeraser with Windows XP we would like to ask not to switch Icon size to “Extra Large”.

That is our BUG. Thanks to all who reported it

That is our BUG. Thanks to all who reported it

When switching to Extra Large size, the icon disappears from the desktop and any efforts to bring it back are useless.
You may only uninstall Freeraser and install it again.
We are sorry for inconvenience. Our team will fix this bug and the next version will not have this problem.


We would like to thank those who reported the bug and those who are sending us their thoughts and suggestions.


Development updates

February 25, 2009

Dear all!
Thank you for your comments and recommendations. We always consider them in our development.
Some of Freeraser users felt the lack of an alert, a message that is familiar to all Windows users. They asked to add this option. Following their requests we have added an annoying message, requiring approval before destruction.
Now, when you drop an item to the trash can, you get the warning. You will need to prove that the decision is yours and you are operating in full consciousness and that you are aware of the results.
For those who do not want to be disturbed by warnings we have left an option to disable alerts.Freeraser confirmation alert

We have also done some improvements to the website. The “News” section with RSS aggregation was added.
The Multilanguage support will be added soon. You are welcome to contribute, translating our software to your mother tongue.
Keep updated with the RSS feed.

Oops, we did it!

Dear all,

It is really amazing that our first freeware has gained that much attention. Thank you! Thanks to those who posted their reviews and thanks to those who ranked Freeraser, thanks to those who reported bugs and special thanks to those who wanted to contribute.
We have received lots of e-mails. Some of you offer translation of the software to local languages. When we started this project we were not planning to apply too much effort and to make it really big and commercial. But thanks to your e-mails we have changed our mind. No, it will not become commercial, at least not now. But we will make it even better.
We are going to:

  • Implement Multilingual support
  • Improve the performance to make it faster
  • Implement some other changes that were offered by you, e.g. the notification before destruction, and more

We believe that you will like Freeraser even more after we make these changes.

And here are some resources that helped us to gain that high recognition in such short time:
