    "It didn't finish on shredding empty space"

    February 24, 2010  |   By DaveKimble3


    Nothing to like


    The worm took six minutes to get to 100% on shredding empty space, but it kept on with "flushing file buffers" for the next 25 minutes and still hadn't finished, although the disc had stopped writing.


    Useless and dangerous to run such weak software on your hard drive, when it could so easily do a lot of damage. The editor must be brain dead to give it 5 stars.
