It would be useful if your selling your computer but if I'm dumping my computer due to being too old or not worth fixing then I remove the hard drives.
I also find it a problem if someone was to take their computer in to be fixed as your exposing your files (bank details, medical records or anything private) to others in the computer repair shop. You usually have to tell them your password so they can boot up the computer. Maybe others have this problem also...

Those few people from Magoshare make programs to delete files, but also programs to retrieve files. That is something that pinches, first deleting files and then doing a recovery. Who is being cheated? And that by a company that was founded in 2016. (What month ? ?)

"Magoshare (www.magoshare.com) is a reliable system utility software and data recovery software developer which is established in 2016. Located in Shen Zhen, China, we are a happy and creative team. software, uninstaller software and other products service for global users. "

Magoshare is not shy of putting himself in the spotlight.

The program 'Privazer' is also available and that is free (with a hint to purchase the donor version).

BUMMER........as #7 below say's>>>>>>>>>>>IT WON'T work on XP.....have XP SP3 and say's NT.
Makes me wonder about Win2000 too if it won't install on XP...........
I'm ticked as usual for something that "wont work" and the time wasted to mess with it......free or not.

Hi Bob. Yes, it installed on both of my computers that have Windows 7 Home Pro 64 bit.
To Captain Mainwaring: You can indeed wipe a hard drive clean with zero possibility of anyone " restoring it. " When you say " Police labs," Police don't restore hard drive info. That's usually done by BCI....Bureau of Criminal Identification labs. When used properly this program will wipe a hard drive clean with one use. Please don't believe everyone that says that a certain agency restored hard drive info. That would be an untruth. Wiped clean ( properly ) is wiped clean. Deleted, never to come back.

Program requirement is Windows XP yet when I try to install a message comes up "Program requires Windows NT version 5.1 Service Pack 4 or later". What is wrong here? I have Windows XP 32 bit and am able to install all programs for "Windows XP".

Yet to find a what's new article or dev history but what I did not like and always made me nervous with AweEraser 2.0 giveaway is at no point when using the context menu erase option the GUI does it state what is about to be erased or what has been erased so one has to trust that windows did comunicate with AweEraser only what was wanted and did not miss-select an item which I have seen it do before... which can be particularly scary if one selects one folder in say a download folders heirachy and instead of sending the path to the subfolder windows sends the parent folder to the delete command.... thankfully when a large number of items gets queued for deletion it takes some considerable time to calculate what's about to happen and can be canceled before any actual deletion takes place but if it happens with AweEraser 2.0 there will be no visibile clues and since the context menu erase operates with elevated rights it can potentially trash windows without warning!

Allows you to erase memory cards, flash drives and other media storage
The utility comes with a modern and intuitive interface designed as a dashboard for simpler and faster navigation. Therefore, while in the left you can access the functions, the right tab is where you can preview, select and delete the data. The tool enables you to permanently delete data using the accepted data erasure standards, including HMG Infosec, U.S. Army AR380-1, DOD 5220.22-M, German FOFI and Peter Gutmann's algorithm.

Enjoy it! ;>)

No such thing as "permanently erase". Police forensic software can easily recover data.
Best thing is a sledge hammer.

Captain Mainwaring , no forensic lab in the entire world has ever publicly claimed to succesfully recover data from modern hard drives that have been overwritten with any data or properly degaussed. sledge hammeer does not erase anything, sectors can theoretically be recovered by sledghammer impacted drives.
If you really wanted to describe an overkill method of data destruction, remove the platters from hard drive mechanisim, degauss the platters thourougly then physically shred the platters or melt them in an induction furnace. Or simply bulk erase using a degausser or overwrite the entire surface including the spare sectors. The only weakness in overwriting the entire surface with the standard head is it takes a very long time with modern magnetic drives and can be interupted by simply interupting the power supply and reseting the firmware to prevent continuation of firmware secure erase command after power restoration...

Captain Mainwaring ,

"No such thing as "permanently erase""

On a conventional HDD yes, there is, because every storage location can be overwritten. The reason for multiple overwrite passes is that the HDD write heads may wobble every so slightly, so a single overwrite pass may not align perfectly with the track it's overwriting. SSDs, USB sticks, SD cards etc. OTOH may not give you access to every storage location, though multiple passes are not required, since there are no physical parts that can wobble.

"Best thing is a sledge hammer."

Google "destroying hard drives" [w/out quotes], and you'll find lots of info, including machines and services that will shred the drives as TK talks about. Do note however that if you've been caught doing something illegal, destroying evidence is itself evidence of a crime. That said, it's not terribly difficult to dispose of a microSD card for example, so maybe use a bit of forethought on where you're going to store sensitive data that you might later want to destroy.

"Police forensic software can easily recover data."

The focus of software & related tools used by law enforcement and security agencies is more often on intercepting or unlocking access to data, and there are cyber arms dealers most willing to sell them those tools, if/when gov agencies can't just use something their own [sometimes quite large] teams cook up. Computer forensics generally looks for evidence in files and in Windows' registry using an image of the disk so as not to taint evidence. Recovering deleted files means using basically the same *software* you or I can use -- there's nothing special about piecing together found fragments of files.

Folks in a lab however can *physically* access every location where data could be stored, measure its value, & piece that data together. That why the multiple passes used by erasure software, and why as TK posts, the fact a disk platter is bent doesn't mean the data on it is unrecoverable.

Captain Mainwaring , Wrong!!

Reply   |   Comment by Darkman  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

mike, The data on modern HDDs is so tightly packed together that a single pass is sufficient. Many of the erasure methods mentioned are for disk technologies from years (or decades) ago. For example Mt Gutmann himself said that his 35 pass method was obsolete in the NINETEEN NINETYS.

However no one has mentioned the problem of solid state drives. If you need to fully erase an sdd you should get a utility from the manufacturer's website or use a BIG hammer, although an SDD-aware program like Privazer might be OK if your data isn't critical.

This is a problem with password protection programs like Pkzip where you can zip up your files to a single zip file and password protect them. To work on your files you need to unzip them on to your hard drive and Pkzip will ease them after you have finished but it does not do a complete erase of the file so it's likely that it the files can be un-erased again.

Godel, quite right about modern and advanced format magnetic hard drives that use perpindicular recording are irretrievably erased by a single overwrite Mr Gutmann himself denounced all the hypothetical claims he originally made and no one is creditied with examining the magnetic domains in the lab to try and recover previously written data. Only old FM and MFM and RLL recorded magnetic media had a hypothetical chance of seeing through a single overwrite but it was never done in practice. There is a statistical risk that remapped damaged/failing sectors could contain a fragment of a sectors data that could be read using custom firmware even if the exposed to end user surface was wiped by being over written.

WIth regard to SSD with wear leveling algorithims are continually moving data around the spare flash memory pages, and marking for erasure to prepare previously used flash memory pages for re-use as appropriate. Every manufacturers chipset handles things according to its own makers propietary algorithims and many do include a secure erase function that performs a full electrical erase on all the adressable flash memory pages. You could theoretically allocate the entire addressible storage space to files and then delete the files and if your OS and interface and SSD supports the TRIM command the deallocated spaces will be securely erased when the firmware is scheduled to do it. But remember that ALL flash memory cells only have a finite number of erase cycles before they start to fail.

The proper and only secure way to deal with sensative information you never want shared with anyone else is do not put/save it on your computerised systems in the first place!

Yes, there is an area in "yellow" to click to "activate" after inserting the number. If I remember correctly, it was underneath the number and to the right. I had no problems and I now have the full version and not a trial.

Alaa Hegazy, if you had an earlier version giveaway that was activated and either long ago uninstalled OR uninstalled during installation of this giveaway then this new version will use AweEraser 2.0 giveaway license for this giveaway and won't provide the Activate interface as it will be using the previous data.

I have the same problem as Alaa. There is no "Activate" button on my screen. I even tried to use the Tab button hoping that it was hidden, but the prompt wouldn't advance. I'm using a Surface and when I open the program, it is tiny on my screen. I had this same issue when trying to use Quicken on this machine. Anyone have any thoughts?

Alaa Hegazy, You could try to download and install the software from the site of the developer.
If that's done, install the software from GOTD again.
Hopefully there is now an activation-button.
I noticed, that your screen-dump is a little bit different form min, beside the button. The lines are different height, place .
