"It sucks - does not work - if I could no stars"
I've tried this software on some of the listed destruction algorithms on a hard drive and it couldn't erase anything - not even a simple text file. It did give a log file stating it can't open this or that, despite that a) the option to force erasure is checked; b) this was performed on a hard drive connected via USB.
Even did an overnight thing, since it acts like it is doing something - next day, the data is still there.
Doesn't work - at least it was free - just good for nothing.
