Editors' Review

This freeware quickly and easily erases private data from your PC, although users must take the publisher at its word that the data is not recoverable.

IEraseTraces features a clean, tabbed interface that gives users the option to quickly scan their hard drive for traces such as temporary Internet files, browser history, and clipboard memory. A rather robust online Help center adds to the ease of use. The program also providers real-time monitoring of changing traces. In addition, the program offers the option to wipe drives clean using either a "zero fill" method that the publisher warns may leave data vulnerable to data recovery hardware and software. A "government method" is recommended by the creators of this program and is touted as a means to destroy data so thoroughly that "only high tech data recovery" could potentially retrieve the deleted information. It is that last feature that requires a leap of faith for most users.

While it is easy to use and may provide some peace of mind, unless you have access to data recovery tools and can verify that the data can't be uncovered, you are left unsure whether this software is, in fact, any more effective than simply erasing data manually.
