iolo DriveScrubber - up to 3 PCs
Wipe your hard drive – permanently
|If you’re selling, donating or reassigning your PC you need DriveScrubber®. Simply deleting files, pictures, or documents – even reformatting the hard drive – isn’t enough. Anyone with basic computer knowledge can recover and steal the private information you thought was gone. U.S. Department of Defense standards for secure data deletion require seven overwrites of the target drive space; DriveScrubber lets you overwrite up to one hundred times, so even the most sophisticated recovery and forensic methods can’t recover your data. DriveScrubber also lets you wipe only free drive space, keeping the operating system intact. Use it to keep personal information out of the wrong hands, or even to clean up after a stubborn virus or spyware attack.|

Award-winning, for a reason!6/28/2012
System Mechanic has won hundreds of awards from the press for a reason. The software has worked wonders to speed up my old computer. Thank you!
i haven't used the product yet .
I was unable to get the software to work. Upon installation on a 32-bit XP system, the buttons to erase data on the GUI did not work (no response). After spending several hours troubleshooting and reinstalling, I gave up and found several freeware programs that installed very quickly and performed everything I needed. I threw this software away since you have to pay every year anyway. Also, you have to register online before the installation process will continue. The cost wasn't bad, maybe just an isolated problem for me; but I was unable to get the software to work after several hours and I am relatively familiar with software programming.
I bought this (on sale) because I needed a 64bit system eraser to replace the freeware eraser program I've been using for years. Both products will permanently replace deleted data with zeros, but the freeware allowed me to (one click)erase the data in the trash bin. Scrubber makes me browse to the system file where the files I want to permanently erase reside or scrub the entire drive.
Only Good For one year7/1/2009
I thought this was great deal till I installed the software. It is only a One Year license which they don't tell you. After that it's $30 per year. This should be clearly disclosed in the descriion
Works great and is easy to use12/3/2008
If you need to erase old drives then this is the right tool. Super easy to use. With a rebate it is an incredible value. (still very good w/o) Depending on the size of the drive it will take an hour or two to erase but then you can recycle your drives without worrying about client or personal data falling into the wrong hands.
Better results with this than the Gateway computer12/2/2008
DriveScrubber is an easy to use package. The capability to create a bootable CD is a plus extending the usefulness way beyond the 3-installation limit. No problems at all. The Gateway laptop I bought in August was a disaster. It failed within two weeks and took Gateway SEVEN weeks to honor its warranty. And Buy.com was no help in getting Gateway to get off the pot!!
Only a lease10/20/2008
You should know that this product is only good for one year from date of installation. It requires a $19.95/yr. renewal of the license to continue use. Also, you cannot delete selected files. You can wipe the entire disk or all unused space. Otherwise, it's an OK product.
Hard Drive Scrubber10/7/2008
Software arrived quickly. I applied for rebate same day. Still waiting for rebate check. Everyone should understand this software is a hard drive killer. It is used only to wipe off or clean ALL data on computer you are planning to sell or trash and you do not want anyone to resurrect your personal data or files. I bought the software for future use only and therefore have not tested it. Seems like a great idea to have for when that day comes (and it will for all of us).
Make it go away!8/28/2008
The bottom line to this product is it does what it says it will in a pretty straight forward and simple to use interface. It makes all of your old data go away!!!!!
