Secure Data Erasure Software
I'm looking for data erasure software to wipe my disks clean, the requirements I have on this data destruction software should be secure, reliable and it's better to do the erasing job without bootable CD/DVD, because my laptop does not have such devices to read disc media, I want to wipe things within one step or less than steps, I don't want to reboot and reboot for each operation, I know some software can do this job without bootable media, so don't say there's no such programs available.
We don't like to reboot and wipe things before system are actually running, programs of data erasing in this market require a reboot so that they can deal with the operating system without the annoying warning message of file protection. Fortunately, we developed Data Wiper so that we can wipe Windows system out directly without rebooting and entering to the bootable system.
Let's find out how's this data erasure software work:
- Free download this portable software first from this page:
- Run it after unzipped and click the disk contains Windows system to wipe;
- Now we have 2 options: wipe free space, or wipe entire disk; the former one will not affect the programs and files that already here, but will wipe only free space and clean up all the traces of deleted or formatted data, so that data recovery software won't restore the old data; Wipe entire hard drive, on the other hand, will erase every bit of data on the disk, including the running Windows System itself, without rebooting or running a bootable CD; so before clicking on this option, just make sure you have backed up essential and important data;
- Choose a wiping scheme from area 2, five of them are secure wiping methods, none of them can be recovered by normal data-recovery software; DoD wiping schemes are the terminator of professional recovery programs, so if the disk you're wiping now has the opportunity to be exposed by professionals, click DoD options.
- And then click Wipe Now to start wipe after typed WIPE to confirm.
