Active@ KillDisk is intended to preserve the privacy of your data by wiping disk contents beyond the possibility of recovering them by any means. The tool has a fairly easy to use interface, but it is good to alert inexperienced users that they should use it with caution, due to the evident possibility of accidentally deleting important data. The program supports such storage media as HDD, SSD, and USB.
Active@ KillDisk scans your system and shows all available partitions, which includes those that are hidden or reserved by the system. The contents of each partition are shown in a tree style, quite similar to the system’s file manager. Likewise, the program can detect unused space, which is very important because there is always the possibility that deleted files are still recoverable from there.
The tool supports two main kinds of actions, called Wipe and Erase. In this respect, you should be aware that they are quite different. On the one hand, wiping refers to securely deleting whatever data may be left on the unused space. On the other, erasing means deleting the selected files or folders or even the entire disk and it has the advantage of removing even the boot sector. more
