    Can you change the erasure algorithms with this version, I do not see a "settings" option on top right of the interface as the user manual says?

    Installed under Vista and Windows 10... worked as expected under Vista, was able to activate and erase files and it defaults to HMG Infosec Standard 5 method which is essentially overwriting sectors with zeros once, which is adequate and should be compatible with SSD firmware that look out for sector zeroing as an alternative to the TRIM command. Under Windows 10 I had it cause an error with direct disc access being blocked until I allowed it... On launching the GUI it initially loaded the GUI then after a few seconds it vanished without trace. I was able to erase a file using default method but GUI is unusable and I have been unable to enter license key.

    I note that under Vista the GUI is highly reminiscent of AweEraser and Do Your Data Super Eraser, same functionality just different skins. There is no obvious way to change the default erasure method or define a custom pattern of sector contents or number of passes, just a small number of presets with no detail on what is actually written to discs. It does produce a log of what was erased and with what named method and when and one can export the events to an HTML file. for data sanitation policy compliance. Uncertain why the GUI fails to stay loaded under Windows 10 but at version 2.0 it should be stable by now!

    Assuming that it does clear SSDs, IMHO Donemax should provide more info on its web site, rather than just saying it doesn't shorten the lifespan. It's probably worth a shot to check it out, bearing in mind that there have been enough data recovery apps on GOTD that you could verify if files are indeed gone, though that won't tell you anything about potential data stored on blocks that are inactive because of over provisioning. Some SSD manufacturers provide their own utilities to reset the drive, but research before you depend on one of them, because some have been found not to work. Tom's has a decent article that suggests you can also use Windows DiskPart.


    Erasing a conventional hard disk requires patience -- it can take a Long time. Because the read/write heads float over the platters where data's stored on a tiny cushion of air, they can wobble a tiny bit side to side. That means that when data's overwritten traces of the old data may be left behind, say if the heads were on the right when written but more to the left when overwritten. To counter that apps like Donemax Data Eraser can overwrite the entire disk more than once, and that can take a long time. To avoid that businesses sometimes use a service that actually shreds hard disks, or if you're throwing the old hard disk away, some people will try to physically destroy them, often by drilling multiple holes through the hard disk. Note: one method of recovering data from a failed drive is to install the platters from a dead conventional hard disk in a working drive, so don't assume when a hard disk fails it's safe to just toss it in the trash.

    Installed and activated on win 10 PC - straightforward. Can I run this from a USB drive to wipe an old PC before I part with it?

    Martin, unlikely as it needs drivers installed. just install the always free https://eraser.heidi.ie/ eraser and create a new user profile and delete all the existing ones and erase free space and you should be able to part with a working windows PC with no risk of data leakage. Don't forget to erase any personal files stored outside ones Documents and other profile related locations e.g. on a secondary or tertiary drive. You should not need to nuke windows installation in order to safely part with a Windows PC.

    How to activate?

    Ignazio Doro, mine appears to be activated automatically. I could find nowhere to enter the activation key

    I think there was a red button labelled Activation in the bottom left corner of the window - pasted in the activation code, and it changed from trial version to full.
