How many script kiddies does it take to change a light bulb?

Why change it? They can just wait for someone else to do it then they can claim the credit.....

My English skills are not good enough to write an understandable manual...

Nice piece of software... It does add a key tho...

HKU\S-1-5-21-746137067-2025429265-682003330-1005\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache\*:\*\*\WipeDisk\WipeDisk.exe: "WipeDisk - Löscht Datenträger schnell und sicher"

So not strictly portable as it leave a record of its use and the drive it was run from (i replaced with *)...

but.... I do like it and its now on my key :)

WipeFile does not write into the Registry. This key is added by the windows shell, not by the program. :wink:

You find aditional infos about this key at http://windowsir.blogspot.com/2005/12/m ... olved.html

Interesting read. thank you :)

I work in computer forensics so I'm a little more cautious than most. Always good to find new info (it never stops lol).

Thanks again
