I don't consider a 'trial version' of a program as a 'giveaway'. More times than not, that is the case with these items. FREE is FREE not a trial! :-(

For some reason I have tried to run the setup of this software ( after downloading and unzipping it) and it will not work. It just takes me to a window that instructs me to close and when I do it takes me to the thank you site of GOTD and never loads the free software. Any suggestions?

The best data eraser is a hacksaw to cut the HD in half or a fast swinging sledge hammer on a concrete base with the HD in between.

Drive erasers are plentiful and, mostly, free. The classic one is called DBAN which stands for Darik's Boot and Nuke. It's a free download, and quite a small file size. You burn it onto a blank CD or DVD. Then restart the computer and allow the DBAN disk to boot up the computer. Once it has booted up you simply select which drive you want to erase and click OK. DBAN will then overwrite all sectors on the entire disk. It's not selective - it erases the entire disk.

Another great download is Parted Magic. This one is not free. However, it contain a bunch of tools, not just one. And, of course, it includes a drive eraser.

It did not destroy the many hidden vaults I keep the data in. This software thinks those are bad sectors and skipped over it.
Safe House vaults are still readable after running super eraser. Also data folders inside windows operating system files survived the erasing.

Hi jonson,
Thanks for your feedback. The software can't wipe the entire system hard drive. But you can run it to destroy specific files. And the erased files will not be recovered. You can try our free data recovery software to test it. http://www.doyourdata.com/data-recovery-software/free-data-recovery-software.html

Best regards

DoYourData, I don't believe jonson was referring to wiping a hard drive- jonson was referring to hidden protected folders that are likely locked by the program and therefore Windows.

Is this program portable? I have a couple of old computers that I want to dispose of but cannot trust that my personal data is gone. On one, there is no WIFI and the ethernet isn't working, so I would have to load and run it from a thumb drive. Can I download this and install it to a thumb drive for use on other computers?
Thanks

Bebop,
Hi, so sorry that the software can only installed on a computer.

Reply   |   Comment by DoYourData  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Bebop,

Assuming you're going to throw away the drive(s) rather than recycle, you can always pull it [them] out & physically destroy.

Otherwise I think most wipe the drive completely, which would include the OS, so they use a bootable USB stick or CD/DVD to run the erasing software, or connect the drive to another PC/laptop where they run the software, e.g. DoYourData Super Eraser.

If you use a desktop PC for that, it may be possible to connect the old drive directly, opening the case & connecting it internally -- you normally need a free SATA port, SATA cable, & a free connection from the power supply, though you don't need to physically mount the drive in the case.

The easiest way though is probably using a USB drive dock, which you can pick up on sale for ~$20 in the US. In fact, if you have a drive dock you might want to hold onto one or more drives & continue to use it as an external drive.

Maybe the hardest to handle are old IDE drives, because it's harder to find something that will connect to them. I found a couple of old IDE hard drives I'd stuck away & forgotten about, finding the cheapest route was a USB to drive adapter on eBay.

Anybody ever heard of Piriform's CCleaner
https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
which in its free version offers upto 35 time overwriting?

What idea do companies have to charge $ 39 for a single tool which needs installation on the operating system or am I misunderstanding?

I've used KillDisk infrequently in the past - mostly whenever I wanted to completely erase a HD before selling it, giving it away, or throwing it out. It's one of those programs that you might need every few years or so.
I'll give this a try.

Could anyone tell me why this software is better OR EVEN EQUAL to Privazer, which is FREE?

Reply   |   Comment by indie  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

indie, hi. Super Eraser offers three data wipe modes - selectively erase files or folders, wipe hard drives, wipe free disk space(for wiping deleted/lost data on the free disk space). It 100% makes data recovery impossible. We sincerely recommend you have a try with this software. Thanks for your feedback.

Question - do you erase SSD files and drives, too? How do you bypass the spreading algorithm, which is internal to the drive, and causes rewrites, even to the same sector, to be actually written to a new place and not over the sensitive data?

Reply   |   Comment by Am* R***  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Am* R***, hi
Yes it can wipe SSD files and dirves. It overwrites the disk space of the erased data with zero data, so that can make data recovery impossible. All your erased sensitive data will never be recovered.
Thanks for your feedback.

If you have further question, you can send an email to support@doyourdata.com

Reply   |   Comment by DoYourData  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Am* R***,

This is something you'd probably want to research for the brand/model of SSD. SSDs typically have extra storage space, & that unused space is swapped out as small sections of the drive go bad. Those swapped out portions of the drive are then pretty much invisible to software. This is in addition to whatever load leveling the drive might do.

The manufacturer *might* provide a way to clean the drive completely, but depending on the make/model of the drive, if/when that's available, it doesn't always work 100%. On top of that, researchers studying flash memory have sometimes been able to still pull data off the memory chips themselves.

That said, as support at doyourdata replied, this app can overwrite the data it can access. Note however that overwriting is primarily intended for conventional drives -- an SSD 1st clears storage with data, then writes to that storage, so the 2nd step overwriting may be overkill.

I had an experience that one month before I had an old hard disk for sale and had been told that my deleted photos and files would be recovered with some kind of tool. I searched internet for evidence and here they were. This was so scare. So I have been recommended to use a partition software to erase data, and the name of that software is AOMEI Partition Assistant- a very powerful partition freeware. Now, I am still using it. Except the function of erasing data, it can also help migrate OS to SSD , make bootable CD, merge partition and any other functions.

jacksonX,

"I had an old hard disk for sale and had been told that my deleted photos and files would be recovered with some kind of tool."

If you want -- if it'll make you feel better after using DoYourData Super Eraser -- go ahead & run a recovery app to see if it comes up with anything. There have been several on GOTD, there's freeware e.g. Recuva, and many of these apps have free trials [they may be limited to showing you what could be recovered if you bought the app, but as a simple check for recoverable files they should work fine].

jacksonX, cypher on Windows does a 3 pass wipe, and it is free with Windows.
