    Software to delete unwanted data on the hard drive

    Hey fellas,

    does anybody know of software that removes unwanted and all the traces off the hard drive. I've seen an ad once on the english-speaking internet but I can't find the source of it anymore.
    I would also be happy about any other tipps on how I can make keeping data a little safer.

    Grüße aus Deutschland,

    P.S.:
    Please excuse my bad grammar.

    EE

    Get Evidence Eliminator, but be careful about how you configure it.
    It's 149.00, but you can find a solution to that at www.astalavista.com

    It can rewrite the targeted information so that it cannot be retrieved.

    no shit..
    Let's say the drive is in FAT32. You format it in NTFS, then again in Fat32. Everything should be destructed.

    I know IBM has programs that after formatting fill every bit with blanks or zeros. That should take care of it as well.

    No No No

    Data is never totally removed, regardless of formatting ten or ten million times.

    The DoD policy for erasing top secret data is the put the disks into machines that essentially pound the disks into sand, then they smolt the 'sand'.

    If formatting X number of times was safe, they wouldn't be doing this.

    But theres a flip side to this. You are very likely not a high profile enough target for anyone to give a rat's ass about the data you've overwritten.

    Use PGP's clear disk utility.
