secure file deletion Eraser is a secure file deletion tool that allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with sophisticated patterns (Gutman, USDoD and others). You can simply drag and drop files and/or folders onto the on-demand eraser, use the convenient Windows Explorer right-click extension or use the built-in scheduler for automated wiping of unused disk space, browser cache files etc. Easy to use and secure!

Useful program but watch out! 3 stars by mats.osterlund846 Dec 20, 2021
The program does its job, but be careful and remove old works from the memory list in the program. A must! If you delete the contents of a disk, for example with the name E: and do not delete the work from the list in the program, Eraser will continue to delete the contents of the next disk that you connect to the computer that names it E: It may be a completely different disk, the contents of which will be deleted by the program, as I experienced it, without warning. Even if you delete a new file or a folder added to the list, Eraser will try to erase files or disks that are still in the list. And you will not be able to get the content back. Use the program with great care! show Review details
Simple and efficient cleanup tool 5 stars by DarrinSingleton Jul 16, 2015 (Read all my 5 reviews)
Eraser definitely does what it promises to: efficient and safe cleanup. For the absolute majority of cases, it is sufficient. For better safety (or less paranoia), I would advise to a) erase your temporary files folder on shutdown with Eraser, and b) use encrypted filesystem such as encfs to even more reduce chances to recover whatever sensitive data you could have on disk. show Review details
Eraser does it's job 5 stars by SeSorrow Apr 30, 2011 (Read all my 29 reviews)
Never knew I needed this, til I found it. Does a great job of erasing on demand with a high level of destruction. You won't be able to recover files with this one. Interface is beautiful and couldn't be easier to use and understand. Can be set on a schedule to delete files/folders automatically which is great for me. I use to it delete the recycle bin on a schedule. show Review details
