    I used Eraser 5.7 rewrote over my unused disc space. Never had issues before
    until now.
    I had 70 gigs of free space until I used this eraser software.
    Now I only have 21 gigs after the eraser software rewrote my hard drive =0(
    I used system restore to no avail #$^&%&*^%
    What the hell happened????

    I tried defragging and the system analyzer tells me that I have 50 gigs of
    Permanent RED Fragmented files on my hard drive now!!!!!!
    Do I have to reformat now to get my hard drive back the way it was before I
    erased?

    I have months of work and software that is hard to replace.

    Red= BAD! If these are really bad sectors, your drive is going to fail. If
    you want to take a chance, run Scandisk and set it to try to recover lost
    sectors.

    Just use the backup copies that you've made.
