Quick Erase

#1 Post by smaragdus » Sat Dec 26, 2015 11:18 am

Quick Erase is a simple drag&drop file shredder that supports 12 shredding algorithms.

Quick Erase description:
When you delete a file, it isn't really gone because Windows just marks the space (sector) it occupied as being available and you will still be able to recover it long after it has been deleted. Anyone with a restoration or undelete program could recover it long after the hard drive was discarded. Quick Erase is a versatile tool that insures any information you want to remove will stay gone. It uses incredibly effective methods to keep your sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands. Quick Erase overwrites your deleted file making it unrecognizable and irrecoverable.

Quick Erase ScreenQuick Erase offers twelve different deletion methods that vary from fast 1 step approaches (Quick or British HMG IS5 (Baseline)), up to complex 23 passes mechanisms (Rizonesoft’s own South African RSDP-23). Furthermore, to make the file completely untraceable, this reliable tool will also rename your overwritten data and reset its date. Using Quick Erase is as easy as pie. Simply run the application and drag the files or folders you want to get rid of into the main program window. After you click yes on the confirmation window, your data will magically vanish, never to be seen again.

The settings that Quick Erase provides will allow you to select the desired deletion method and to enable or disable the warning message, the always on top setting will make the program window always float on top of all other windows (useful when working with Quick Erase in a full screen explorer window) and the renaming or the date resetting options. This is also the window where you will receive complete information about each overwriting method (how many steps it takes and what happens in each pass).

Quick Erase is portable and stealth by default- just extract the archive and run QuickErase.exe- Quick Erase saves its settings in QuickErase.ini file inside program folder.

I threw a file at it with unicode characters and it seemed to work fine. I'm using v.0.4.2.420.
