    Version: Disk Redactor 1.2 Build 180


    doesn't damage files/filesystem


    doesn't really do anything but waste time


    I hate to say it, but i tested it out on an NTFS partition (windows 8, separate test on Win7)(SATA-II hard disk). first i filled it with pictures and texts, formatted, then tested to see if i could recover with recovery software (recover my files). it did 99%.

    Then, i used disk redactor on the partition, let it complete, and ran "recover my files" again. It took a little longer, but it found over 9000 individual files, with about 7500 COMPLETE (no missing bytes).

    on the bright side, it did no damage to any of my files that were NOT deleted (separate drive)

    Version: Disk Redactor 1.2 Build 180


    I don't really have a way to determine if Redactor has written over all the unused disk space. I think it does. But it has been safe, and has not damaged my windows installation on three computers. That's four out of five stars right there.


    No way to confirm it has done its job.


    I use it because it is hard to find a program to wipe unused disk space. I had a bootable diskette program that performed this service. It's pretty old now (dos based). So I appreciate that this publisher is providing a service most folks don't realize is needed. I've used it with Windows XP computers only. I've used it to clean up SCSI, ATA, and SATA drives. It has never caused XP to complain. Disk Redactor may deserve FIVE stars. I'm just not up to confirming the job's done or not.
