People familiar with data recovery or security know that simply deleting a file does not erase it from the hard drive. In fact, the regular deletion process only deletes the reference to that file but the file itself is not deleted. Eraser is a Windows-based open source utility that completely and securely deletes files from your computer so it becomes almost impossible to recover them.
It works by overwriting your files with random data so your original data is completely gone. One of the best features is that in addition to running the shredding process anytime you desire, you can schedule it to run daily, weekly or monthly. The software works with all versions of Windows and Windows server.
- Securely delete files from your computer permanently.
- Schedule file shredding for daily, weekly or monthly recurrence.
- Select desired erasure method like Gutmann, RCMP or GOST.
