    "Eraser" new release

    For those of you who use it, or are interested, there is a new (15 December 2009) stable release that works with recent versions of Windows.

    Basically it provides secure deletion of files and folders, whole disks etc. It also has a "secure move" feature.

    It will also wipe "free space" including alternate data streams and cluster tips


    It is true "freeware", and the source code is available under the GNU Public License"

    I have used it for a number of years (since Win 98 actually ) and can personally recommend it. I know of no publicly available commercial product that is better.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
