    "Doesn't Work at all"

    May 29, 2012   |   By tomzzz99

    Version: Darik's Boot and Nuke for floppy disks and USB 1.0.7

    Pros

    None at all. Waste of a good CD-R and my time.

    Cons

    1) NOT for floppy disks.
    2) Runs while you select options, then bombs when you try to execute.

    Summary

    Your luck may vary, but mine was bad.

    "Gets the job done"

    November 13, 2009   |   By why1991

    Version: Darik's Boot and Nuke for floppy disks and USB 1.0.7

    Pros

    It is great for wiping any system with any problem, and writes over everything with 0's

    Cons

    Writing over tons of 0's obviously takes a long time so a long process will be expected, but it's well worth it

    Summary

    Just to biztastic who previously commented, this is a program that is intended to allow a user to wipe their computer from a flashdrive/floppy disk, and not to wipe your flash drive. If you would like to wipe your flash drive just highlight everything in it and right-click/delete it. This program is NOT a virus, and works great

    "It does what it says it does, DBAN destroys data."

    November 01, 2009   |   By orion3672

    Version: Darik's Boot and Nuke for floppy disks and USB 1.0.7

    Pros

    It will destroy all data on a hard-disk beyond (or nearly beyond) the capabilities forensic analysis. I use Derik's Boot and Nuke when I buy used computers from thrift stores or elsewhere.

    Cons

    Can take several hours to a few days.

    Summary

    The bottom line is: If you are getting rid of, or aquiring a used computer, use DBAN. I mean, you could go for Evidence Eliminator, but you would have to pay $150 and EE is just a scam anyway. This is the real deal, just read the first review, lol.

    "Very Misleading Title!!"

    September 23, 2009   |   By biztastic

    Version: Darik's Boot and Nuke for floppy disks and USB 1.0.7

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Basically this is a virus with a friendly title

    Summary

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS if you need to nuke a USB or Floppy!! THIS WILL DESTROY YOUR HARD DRIVE DATA.
