Not sure how useful this is not being portable.

Simple, painless, smooth download, installation, and registration as per the instructions in the ReadMe file. Nice interface. Looks good! I know I can use this! Thanks so much, GAOTD and DoYourData!

It would be better if there was an option to just overwrite the file header, and it's size in MFT, afterall, not everyone needs a top notch security solution.

ron, Yes, it can help you wipe free disk space to permanently erase already deleted data.

ron,

I use eraser. It's free, has a dozen different erase methods, and can 'erase' the blank space on any disk. (re-write over blank space).

Is DoYourData Super Eraser portable? Can it be run from a flash drive?

I've never seen a purpose for this type of software. If I want to toss out anything with a HDD, I take out the drive and destroy it. If I want to sell or give away anything with a HDD, I format it and re-install OS.

jj juice, if you give or sell me your old computer, with a formatted drive and re-installed OS, I can recover almost all your old data with any of the many giveaways we have seen here. Or with the free Recuva.

Formatted does NOT wipe the original data. It only 'tells' your computer it can overwrite all existing data.

little ricky, you might de amazed.

Many formats, like .pdf and .doc have a characteristic header that can be found. And from there ...

I remember long, long ago I used to replace the two bytes in the header of an encrypted WordPerfect file to make unwanted de-encryption more difficult.

little ricky, When files are deleted from your computer/disk formatted, you are simply deleting the directory listing for the particular file. Even thou it is no longer "visible", the data remains on the disk and isn't permanently removed until it's overwritten with new data. Just re-installing an OS only over writes the area previously used by the OS. Other data remains. The only real way to actually wipe a drive so nothing can be recovered is a complete overwrite of the complete drive, usually consisting of all zeros, except the 511th and 512th byte..those are left with the code that allows the BIOS of an MBR system to recognize the drive is ok to write to. Or take a hammer and nail to it and completely destroy the platters inside.
UEFI and GPT systems are a bit more difficult, but again, unless the complete drive is over written, old data that isn't part of the O/S could be recovered with advanced methods. I had an old drive here that I did a complete format on, but decided to check it

Disregard my previous comment. Program that refused install was a different program from a different giveaway site..Lol.

Click to install?
Clicked as instructed.
Message comes up '' Installation path invalid''.
I was not given any option to enter installation path?
Consequently program refuses to install?

Duane, I usually have to pause my anti virus to install this site. works. for me.

Gb, Whenever there is a giveaway for both Apple and Windows, the setup.exe for Windows is not encrypted an running it will not trigger your AV into reacting on a false positive.

OK....my usual question on this forum.....is this 6-month license? a one year license or a lifetime license? Updates and technical support included? Is this better than Glary Utilities or Macrorit Data Wiper, both of which have been offered here on the GAOD page?

I'bve installed the software but it's only a trial version. How do I activate the full version?
