If you need sensitive data deleted without a trace, look no further than this easy to use application.

Secure Eraser has a colorful interface with three main tabs any user can understand. The program features include secure file and folder deletion, system cleaning, and Registry cleaning. The Secure File Deletion tab is fairly self-explanatory, as it simply deletes user-designated files and folders after overwriting the original file with random data. These deleted files and folders are completely erased and not just sent to the Recycle Bin. System Cleaning allows users to clear up temporary files, Internet Explorer settings, and the Recycle Bin all with a click of a button, but the process wasn't as quick as other tools. Registry Cleaning, on the other hand, is quick and simple. Users can choose which types of Registry entries they want scanned, results appear almost immediately, and deletion is a quick button push away.

Anyone looking for an all-in-one system cleaner can have faith that Secure Eraser will get the job done, even if it's not exactly the fastest program out there in cleaning some areas.

Developer's Description

Erase your documents and drives securely.
Because it's been erased from your hard drive, doesn't mean it's gone forever. As long as the information was not overwritten, anyone can restore it at any time. It gets even more complicated, if a computer has been resold or given away.Secure Eraser uses the most renowned method of data disposal and overwrites sensitive information in such a sure way that it can never be retrieved - even with specialized software. Our multiple award-winning solutions for definitively destroying data also eliminate any cross-references that could leave traces of deleted files in the allocation table of your hard drive.

This easy-to-use Windows software will overwrite sensitive data even up to 35 times - regardless of whether they are files, folders, drives, recycle bin or traces of surfing. You can also delete files that have already been deleted, but this time for good.Secure Eraser not only overwrites using random data, it offers the approved US Dod 5220.22-ME and U.S. DoD 5220.22-MECE standards from the US Department of Defense, the German industrial standard and the Peter Gutmann standard. All deletions are logged in details upon request.
