Everytme I attamept to wipe one of my slave drives with DOD Wipe my system freezes with message saying "1 of 2 wiping partitian, less than 1 minute remaining". I have WIN 7 and a very robust system. I have made three attemps, fixes attempeted applied updates, rebooted system prior and post operaion. Nothing seems to work. I have been able to use the Russian wipe option without any problem. Please help.

Hello Stan,

Thank you for your posting! As Acronis Drive Cleanser 6.0 hasn't been updated for a long time, it's desktop version might be not compatible with operating systems newer than Windows Vista (here you'll find the list of supported systems). I'd recommend running Acronis Drive Cleanser as a bootable media. If you create a bootable disk, Acronis Drive Cleanser 6.0 does not require any operating system to work with disk functions of your computer's BIOS. 

Thank you,
