Moo0 Anti-Recovery is a free disk-cleaning utility that wipes the free space on your hard drive, making the data on it unrecoverable. It doesn't delete or overwrite your existing data; it merely ensures that anything you've meant to delete is actually deleted and can't be undeleted or recovered by someone who might come along later, so you can walk away from your PC with confidence in your security. Who needs it? Anyone who sells, loans, or shares a hard drive, USB drive, or similar device; or uses a company-supplied PC; or shares a PC with other users or family members, for example. But it's also for people who want to be sure their credit card numbers, contacts, and other personal data are actually deleted.

Anti-Recovery is a simple tool with a simple interface, though with many language options. Beginning with a drop-down list for selecting which of our drives to act upon, Anti-Recovery presents a series of five check boxes for each cleaning job, each with its own progress bar: Recycle Bin; Free space on disk; Free space on MFT (Master File Table); Cluster tips (aka slack space; unused areas at the end of the last allocated cluster); and File name traces on the MFT. The tool offers few options, just Keep on Top, Easy Drag, and Close by Mouse-Wheel Click. The online product page offers good descriptions, including screenshots.

Moo0 states that Anti-Recovery doesn't erase existing data, and we believe them. But the old arms control maxim, "trust, but verify," rules our critical data, so we started by running Anti-Recovery on our D drive instead of our C drive. The first process, erasing free space, is Anti-Recovery's main tool, and it takes by far the longest to run. But once we'd verified, we trusted: Anti-Recovery had scrubbed the disk's free space and left the data intact. You don't need to run Anti-Recovery often, or all of its tools, but it's a good idea to use it regularly, such as Friday afternoon or before you leave on vacation. Trust Anti-Recovery to verify that deleted data is gone.

"A great program for those who want to corrupt data."

November 07, 2014  |  By NKates42

 |  Version: Moo0 Anti-Recovery 1.11

Pros

It claims it can delete free space on your computer, but the intricacy involved in doing this on windows 7, this program does not meet its expectations at all.

Cons

It completely corrupted my VLC media player installation, my Truecrypt installation, and video playback slowed to a snails crawl after running this program. I am pretty sure the mechanism it uses is flawed, I had to completely set my system back to before it was ever installed to fix all of the problems it created. For instance, My Truecrypted drive partition suddenly started showing only 27 gigs of data, rather than the 280 it normally has after installation and running of this program. It is supposed to delete free drive space, but there is a bug in this program that causes it to cross over into your already existing data, partially corrupting what is there. Yes, that includes all of your personal files, and even your programs in your x86 / 64 folders. I have tried it twice, once on the desktop and once in a virtual machine. I can surely confirm this program is the culprit on a Windows 7 64 bit installation. I had the same effect on the 32 bit version of Windows 7 as well.

Summary

I wouldn't touch this program if I were you. Remember, I might be some random guy who reviewed it, but I check the integrity of my files every day and rest assured this program is bad news. It's the kind of program you run and you have no idea what it corrupted under the hood, its like having somebody cut a random wire on your car engine and you have to pinpoint and figure out where the damage is on your own since virtually no site I have seen even covers it or has any reviews on this program. I find it rather comparable to the retro program HDKP4 (Hard Drive Killer Pro 4) to be honest. lol

This guy may have had good intentions, but all this thing does is kill hard drives and corrupt data. If you have Truecrypt, you have been warned.

Great if you have about 6 hours of your time to waste debugging the damage it causes!

What's new in version 1.11
- Fixed a problem in which the program was occasionally failing when wiping the MFT records on C drive, depending on what other programs were running at the same time. - It now fails far less, even in the same situations. Also, it will now leave no temporary files on the PC even after the errors, as long as you reboot the PC once.
