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

Pros

Easy to use, does the job,wipes a hard drive so another OS can be installed.

"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.
