    "Very Misleading Title!!"

    September 23, 2009  |   By biztastic


    This title is very misleading, it says it is for use ON Usb and floppy drives, and says it is FOR floppy disks and USB. I highly require a USB nuker and thought this was it, and nuked my hard drive thinking it was nuking my USB drive.


    Basically this is a virus with a friendly title

    If you're unfamiliar with DBAN, be careful, lest you follow this gibbering half-wit down the path of accidentally nuking your hard drive.

    DBAN *does* warn you repeatedly that you're about to erase your hard drive. If you give it permission to continue, that's on you, not Darik.

    Did you even read the description ? heh

    Yeah it's definitely not a virus.

    You don't nuke a flash drive.

    Just delete the stuff in it, or even reformat it if you want to

    You need to Google stuff first, do your research before you run an application. Never get into anything like this without reading. This is your neglegence, not Dbans, and not Cnet. DBAN is NOT a virus. It is a shreder, and will completely wipe your harddrive clean. Why the heck would you nuke a floppy? Who uses a floppy these days? Why would you nuke a USB drive? you can just format it and it's fresh again. You must be dense, you didn't even look up the site http://www.dban.org/ or google Dban.

    What they are saying in the description is that it is a version that you can install onto a flash or floppy drive to have a portable executable of dban. Not to wipe the floppy or flash

    You need to read dude, you really need to read....
    You must have poor comprehension skills, and don't like to do research. Well I am glad you nuked your harddisk, if you're that stupid you deserved it.

    It's not a virus people, this guy is clearly just a moron.
