Dear Seven Guo,
Although Volume Eraser does not change your original data set, it first makes a copy and then erases part of the copy.  Then you can save the copy (which had parts erased) as a new file.

This is mentioned in the documentation shown if you click the Help button on the tool, or at our website here:

...and also the last part of this previous post:

I hope this helps,

I want to delete some map area, and used the Volume Eraser. But it can not delete but increase map. Is there any one knows how to fix it? I attached my screen record.
