Secure file erase on a diskcryptor encrypted partition

Hello,

I tried to securely erase some files on a diskcryptor partition with Eraser, and this comes with an error, apparently it is not supported in the application to erase a file on an encrypted partition.

are there tools that allow to securely erase files on a diskcryptor encrypted partition? for example, you want to delete a file and want to make sure it is not recoverable in case the partition password is compromised?

examples:

https://eraser.heidi.ie/forum/threads/c ... file.9583/

I guess basic delete in windows + wiping free space regularly would be an option (but would take a long time). Is there otherwise any way to securely delete single files?

That is strange that should have worked
