    "Simple But Good Erasing Tool"

    October 31, 2007  |   By shansenjoy


    (1) Permanently Erases Files

    (2) Simple Interface

    (3) Options to choose from 1 pass (Faster but less Secure Deletion ) to 35 pass (Slower but more Secure)

    (4) You can use the inbuilt scheduler to schedule regular deletions

    (5) Options to Erase All Unused Space on your Hard Drive


    (1) My Computer Crashed once after using the "Delete Unused Space On Local Drive" but has been working fine since

    (2) If you use Lesser Passes (1,3) for erasing, some files may be recoverable using Undelete Utilities

    (3) Just Keep in mind that if you have utilities which restore system to a previous state like System Restore and Norton Go Back, some files may come back. (This is because these programs create a separate back up of all files)
