Doesn't the following zero out drives successfully?

Linux CD:
fdisk -l [to determine the "X" value of the target drive to put in the following command]
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=1M
[done when dd reports no space left on device.]

Too many freeware alternatives. No need for this.
When was the last time you had to wipe or "data shred" your hard disk.
In my case, Never.

My favorite way to delete all files and be sure no one can find anything on a Harddrive is to take a trip 10 miles out in the Atlantic Ocean and toss it over the side. Harddrives in the TB size are less than $100.

No way to take the boatride in the Atlantic? The take a boatride out into a private pond or lake. Almost as effective.

Easy Drive Data Recovery vrs. Tenorshare Data Wipe! Which GOTD program wins?

Installed & registered in both Win10 (build 10049) & Win8.1.2 and it likes both Os's - BUT - I do not like programs that do not use a "word-type" banner (ie File, View, Help, etc.) and also - the program needs a "BACK" button. I clicked on the wrong "BUTTON" and it took me to deleting folders instead of files & I could not get back, unless I backed out of the program & re-opened - not boding well for "any" amount of my funds buying this - sorry, and thank you for today's offering - c u tomorrow GOTD - & Happy Easter ALL - God Bless - HAND (Have A Nice Day)! (for those of you NOT into acronyms.

Is this program portable? I have no need to wipe the computer I would use for downloading it, but I have a laptop which has no network/internet connections available that I would like to wipe.

Reply   |   Comment by Dave  –  8 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

I think maybe what you would want to use is one of the bootable CDs/DVDs/USB stick created by one of the Paragon, EaseUS, or AOMIE apps previously on GOTD [or check their free software]. Many of those, while designed for stuff like backups or working with partitions, also include a disk wiper.

The reason for using a bootable disc or USB stick is that if Windows needs to be running, then obviously it can't erase itself, or any of the files it uses.

I trialled this the last time it was here and apart from being impressed by the breathtaking fatuity of this developer's website -- "millions of customers", "scores of international awards": yeah, right -- found it a truly dismal attempt to exploit the ignorance of the average computer user with a substandard product price tagged at the most ludicrous of levels.

As everyone knows, or should do by now, sending a file or folder to the Recycle Bin and then emptying that bin doesn't delete the file or folder at all. Windows simply removes references to the file or folder -- but not the actual data. If you're really concerned about security, then simply set CCleaner's options to Secure File Deletion, Advanced Overwrite, and choose 3 passes or 7 passes (but not the over-the-top 35). Check <b?"Wipe Cluster Tips" too if you wish.

Leave that as CCleaner's default setting and from now on, the data which Windows leaves behind when you've chucked it in the Recycle Bin will be overwritten. Yup, CCleaner will take longer to clean up but you can still carry on with whatever you were doing while it does its job.

Alternatively, don't bother about multi-pass cleaning and instead use Microsoft's own tools to ensure that data is erased. The tool? Cipher. It over-writes what is known as free space -- and only free space, that is, it over-writes space occupied by files and folders you thought you'd deleted but, er, hadn't. The process referred to here:

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/276046-cipher-command-overwrite-deleted-data-windows.html


is for Windows 7 users, the OS I happen to be on. I can't vouch for Microsoft's capabilities in other versions.

In summary: I couldn't think why anyone would be gullible enough to fall for this Tenorshare offering last time around, and I'm still of that opinion now. Tenorshare really does need to look at areas of possible Microsoft Windows exploitation which are not actually provided for by Microsoft Windows -- and stop pitching massively over-priced commercial mediocrities in the direction of people who may sadly be tempted to part with hard-earned cash.

CCleaner can also wipe all the free space with 1 pass, 3 passes or 7 passes or even over-the-top 35 passes. I recommend people to do this every now and then.

If you are going to use software to wipe information from a data storage device, after you have done so check with a good recovery program. Two reasons as follows:-

You may have not used the program correctly.
The program itself is no good.

After using a program to wipe data from unused space on a hard drive I was surprised to find that a recovery program obtained data from the supposedly wiped area, no idea why!

XP-Man, I never thought you'd have to double check on a Data Wipe operation. I would have blindly believed/trusted it did the promised job ! Thanks for the hint and Happy easter

Didn't know that SSD drives required any special overwriting to permanently erase data, it's just RAM. There is no physical "slop" to compensate for by overwriting almost the same spot hundreds of times.

But I know every time you read and write to it your shortening the lifespan of an SSD. That's why they tell you not to defrag them.

.
There is no record of where data was stored, nor can you always access all data storage locations. Flash memory chips are also harder to destroy physically, & it's been shown they can be read even if the rest of the electronics is destroyed.

That said, there are some that say wiping a SSD from time to time is helpful to restore performance, even on drives that have had trim enabled.

Like the author of this comment I had assumed that data on SSD drives would be overwritten and security not a problem.
Your three excellent links show just how just how wrong I was in this assumption.
Makes me wonder about thumb drives and if they are as difficult to clear of data, you have any links regarding this, if so would much appreciate if you posted them.

Tenorshare is the creator of many usefull and easy to use programs. Unfortunately, this program adds nothing to what is allready available for free e.g. Easeus Free Disk Partition manager has a wipe option, and ccleaner too. B.t.w. if you want to wipe your harddisc in a windows 8/8.1 preinstalled computer, don't forget to install a program that can read your windows 8 product key (often no sticker on the case) and write it down before wiping. http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows-8/a/windows-8-product-key.htm

"don’t forget to install a program that can read your windows 8 product key (often no sticker on the case) and write it down before wiping."

nirsoft.net has a free, portable tool to do that [it's listed in the about.com article], along with a pretty long list of other free utilities. Note however that these sorts of apps [including many on the Nirsoft site] by design do stuff that most apps don't, e.g. in this case looking for product keys, which can trigger security software warnings &/or blocking.

Everyone loves CCleaner. I noticed recently it's sister program, Speccy, which is a free download, will also display the Windows Key. The program defaults to the "Summary" screen. On the left, under "Summary", click on "Operating System". The Serial Number will be displayed on the right.

I use Belarc Advisor to give me all the details about my system and product keys for everything, including Windows keys. I've used it for many, many years. Here's what they say on the website: "The Belarc Advisor builds a detailed profile of your installed software and hardware, network inventory, missing Microsoft hotfixes, anti-virus status, security benchmarks, and displays the results in your Web browser. All of your PC profile information is kept private on your PC and is not sent to any web server."

I usually save the report to my troubleshooting folder and then offline in my Google Drive for safety. No ads, they make their money from corporate services. Download it here: http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

Best little utility for recording everything installed on your computers.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. A clean install.

A (Chinese) company without name and address. We had many different software programs from this company.
The same version Tenorshare Data Wipe 2.0 was given here on June 30, 2013. Here are the old reviews:
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/tenorshare-data-wipe/

This time the software has a new time stamp and a version 2.0.0.1
This software is a front end to another very old modul - eraser library copyrighted by Garrett Trant;
http://sourceforge.net/p/eraser/activity/
http://i.imgur.com/cZQnaMV.png

Upon start a simple, not resizable window opens, no options to change. No information about what the Garrett Trant eraser does. You choose a partition, a folder or file and erase.

After deleting a short statistic info is shown. The best is, that this little windows tool is supporting the Windows operating system... :
