CodySafe on the PC WorldPreston Gralla, a famous blogger and writer has posted a review in PC World.

The beauty of this approach is that you can plug your USB drive into any computer, and never actually have to store data on the computer or use the computer’s resources. With CodySafe, everything can be done from the USB drive itself.

We highly appreciate Preston’s professional review and hope that users will follow his recommendations.

Malware?

March 3, 2009

Dear voyagers,
Lately we have received several reports about Trojan or malware found in our application. We were really surprised because we have tested the software at our lab and many other resources like Softpedia . However, we took it seriously. We have done some investigations and found out that there are some resources other than those that we have supplied our application to. It is possible that our application was alternated and some malware code was ported to it. We will take legal measures against those who are trying to take advantage of the popularity of the Freeraser in their criminal affairs.
Dear customers, please exercise vigilance. Please download Freeraser and its updates only from trusted resources like Softpedia, Cnet, Lifehacker, and those who are mentioned in our home page.
Another less likely but still possible reason for this problem is the compression mode of the installer.  Our installation application was compiled using ZLIB compression method. Some antivirus application may identify parts of its code as a malware. To avoid these false virus identifications we have changed the compression method to LZMA. Those who are interested can find test reports here: Freeraser Portable, Freeraser Setup

 

We highly recommend downloading Freeraser from our website. You will allways find the latest version there

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 1.0.0.10. 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!

February 21, 2009

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:
