Ever want to completely wipe a hard drive?

Did you ever want to erase everything on your computer? This is a program I found that does that for you quickly and easily.
Active@ KillDisk is a hard drive eraser and is powerful and compact DOS software that allows you to destroy all data on hard and floppy drives 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 data (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.
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 what operating systems and file systems located on the machine. It can work with DOS, Windows 95 / 98, Windows NT / 2000 / XP, Linux, Unix for PC.
* Prepare and insert bootable floppy disk.
* Click here to start download. This link downloads zip archive file with the Free version of KillDisk.
* When download window appears, unzip and save executable to the floppy drive.
Or use 1 step Bootable Floppy Creation
* Download and run the Bootable Floppy Disk Creator for Active@ KillDisk (click the link). It already contains all necessary files.
There’s also a way to burn it to a cd here.
Now you are ready to boot from the floppy/CD and use the software for disk erasing. Good Luck.
