"Great product"

March 20, 2012  |  By starlilly

 |  Version: Active@ Kill Disk - Hard Drive Eraser 5.5

Pros

Works great, just as described. This programs does as it describes.

Cons

The con is that people dont understand what it is to COMPLETELY ERASE your hard drive. That MEANS YOU WILL have to put on your operating system AGAIN. If yo don;t understand this, than dont use it.

Summary

I have used this on a hp and a toshibe comp. Both vista. You need to have your comp set to boot up from cd/dvd. There is nothing wrong with the program, it is the person using it that does not understand how to use it. And if you dont understand what ersing a hard drive is than get some good tech advice, as you WILL have to reintall your os system. That is what this program is for IS TO ERASE your hard drive COMPLETELY! I have had NO PROBLEMS.

"Terrible software"

January 23, 2012

 |  Version: Active@ Kill Disk - Hard Drive Eraser 5.5

Pros

Nothing to be good.

Cons

Failed at the first try!

Summary

Erased my extra drive but also corrupted my C drive to the point I couldn't boot up any more and have reinstalled a new OS. Wasted my 5 hours time. User beware! If you are going to use it, remember to back up your drive and all data first. Otherwise, it will end up just like me.

"Good tool to have"

December 05, 2011  |  By ehoagland

 |  Version: Active@ Kill Disk - Hard Drive Eraser 5.5

Pros

As advertized, it will wipe out a hard drive (really fast)

It's good for wiping your drive completely when de-commissioning old computer equipment before disposal.

Cons

Once the process begins, it cannot be rolled back. Stopping it will only leave your hard drive unrecoverable without a low-level reformat.

Make a mistake with this software, and you will regret it.

Summary

Works as advertized, but use with caution!

"Blue Screen of Death the very second I clicked 'format'"

August 26, 2011  |  By sg2i

 |  Version: Active@ Kill Disk - Hard Drive Eraser 5.5

Pros

Second run was okay.

Cons

Lousy out of the box experience with PC booting itself just as the 'kill' process started.

Summary

Use other programs who do the same.
