"Easy and very good software"
The KillDisk boot CD has a very simple menu with multiple handy programs: Active@ Uneraser, Active@ killdisk, Active@ Partition Recovery, Active@ Password Changer, Active@ NTFS Reader, Active@DISK Image.
Very small con: the Setup file doesn't work under Windows 98, however the KillDisk boot image ISO file does, so take a look a the manufacturer's site.
Had an old Windows 98 computer with 4,7 GB hdd where I needed to get rid off.
First, I tried use Active@ KillDisk Free edition (11,2 MB exe file) under Windows 98, but that wasn't supported under Windows 98.
Secondly, I used Active@ KillDisk Free edition, by downloading the bootable ISO Image file (4,4 MB ZIP) from the manufacturers site www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm.
The ZIP contains an ISO-file, a readme file (manual) and freeware ISO-burn exe file to burn ISO file to CD. CD runs completely in DOS-mode at boot.
The CD has multiple programs: Active@ Uneraser, Active@ killdisk, Active@ Partition Recovery, Active@ Password Changer, Active@ NTFS Reader, Active@DISK Image.
Active@ KillDisk Free edition uses one-pass-zero erase technology, where the fully paid version has multiple algorithms to erase data on HDD and to verify actions.
Very easy program, easy to follow, easy to understand. I'm enthousiastic.
