    Nicer looking interfface


    Harder to use and more difficult to setup


    With version 5, you can open it, click on one button and it will start erasing all the free space on your hard drive. With this new version, that is more difficult to do. Also, the new version opens with every reboot, presents a command line screen and you have to manually close it. Pain in the neck.

    is version 5 still available? I'd like to try that on my old W98 for recycling, since 6.09.2343 is not working on it

    Agreed, 6.x has a very clunky interface, and it's confusing to try to even do the basic advertised tasks. Horid app.
