Are you about to get rid of your computer, perhaps by selling it or passing it on to a family member? KillDisk helps you thoroughly clear the hard drive so that no personal data remains on the machine.
There are several versions available, but the free version is ideal for most situations. With the program you can delete data from your hard drive, but also from memory cards and USB drives.

The option to use a Boot Disk from KillDisk is useful, because it allows you to empty the computer without having to load the operating system first. This makes you less dependent on the condition of the computer. You can also install the software. The support is relatively extensive: you can install KillDisk from Windows XP. Nice, if you also want older computers wipe.

The makers have paid a lot of attention to the documentation, which you can consult online. You will be kept informed via an overview page while the disks are being cleared. You can also print a certificate that provides an overview of the cleanup. Speaking of cleaning, you can decide which method is used for this. One method is more thorough than the other, but also takes more time.
