Software Product Description

Active@ KillDisk - Hard Drive Eraser is powerful and compact software that allows you to destroy all data on hard/SSD drives, USB drives, memory cards, SCSI storage and RAID disk arrays completely, excluding any possibility of future recovery of deleted files and folders. It's a hard drive and partition eraser utility.

If you use FDISK, FORMAT utilities, or DELETE standard operating system command for data removal, there is always a chance to recover deleted files (using undelete file or some data recovery software) and use against the owner's will. We highly recommend you to run this FREE utility for the hard and floppy drives you want to dispose of, recycle, re-use, sell or donate to somebody.

Active@ KillDisk conforms to US Department of Defense clearing and sanitizing standard DoD 5220.22-M. The most secure Gutmann's data destruction method is also implemented. You can be sure that once you clean up with Active@ KillDisk, sensitive information is purged out forever.

  • New Wipe function that wipes out all unused space on existing drives, not touching existing data.
  • FREE package now includes Windows Bootable ISO Creator that allows you to boot Windows from CD/DVD/Blu-ray & USB drives, and to erase or wipe out your disks in a Windows environment. USB Plug'n'Play devices are supported.
  • The FREE application can be registered with a registration key without re-installation to be able to erase data using DoD 5220.22-M and other methods.
This is security software for unrecoverable data elimination for any computer capable of booting in DOS mode from floppy drive. It uses access to the drive's data on a physical level via BIOS bypassing logical drive structure organization, thus it does not matter operating systems and file systems located on the machine, it can be DOS, Windows 2003 / 2008 / 2012 / 2016 / XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 10, Linux, Unix for PC.


"Better than DBAN"

Reviewer: -HeadlessHorseman

Review Date: 2012-01-14

Pros: Quick, Linux/DOS-based, Guttman Implemented. Whereas DBAN handles IDE, EIDE and all flavors of SATA with ease, DBAN will NOT clean Ultra3 SCSI drives attached to controllers that do not do SINGLE or JBOD. If your older HP/Compaq server only allows RAID-0, RAID-1/0 and/or RAID-5, DBAN will NOT, canNOT clean those SCSI drives. KILLDISK, on the other hand, will clean all 6 drives set up as a RAID-0 array in an HP/Compaq ML350-G3 with ease.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: KILLDISK rocks. I recommend -- buy it. It will be the only disk-wipe utility you will ever need, especially on slightly older machines, most likely to be retired anyway.
