There are times when we need to erase data beyond recovery even for the most sophisticated unerasers. This will avoid hackers from tracing our data back to us and will allow us to give away or sell our old computers or external hard drives safely. Because sending our files to the trash using the Delete key is not enough, DoYourData Super Eraser offers you four top-notch erasure methods to turn your personal pictures, documents, Internet traces, etc., completely unrecoverable.

This is a no-nonsense file eraser designed to make the entire process simple and rewarding. You are offered to erase selected files and folders, wipe entire hard drives, wipe the remaining free space, or simply clean up your Internet traces. As mentioned, you can choose among four different erasure algorithms ranging from 1 wipe or overwrite round to 35 of them. HMG Infosec Standard 5 is the fastest, and it provides 1 overwrite with optional verification. US Army AR380-19 runs 3 wipe rounds and includes mandatory verification, just like DoD 5220.22-M ECE, which overwrites your data 7 times. The slowest yet safest method is the Peter Gutmann’s algorithm, which performs as many as 35 wipe rounds to guarantee that your data is nowhere to be found.

You can use any of these algorithms to wipe any of your hard drives and external storage devices clean for good, regardless of the disk type and the file system used (FAT or NTFS). The program puts the same care in removing all your Internet traces, including cookies, download history, saved passwords, session and browsing history, and Internet cache for Edge, Chrome, IE, or Opera. As a bonus, you are offered a useful erasure history where all your safe erasure processes.

DoYourData Super Eraser does with it was designed to do in a straightforward and simple way, without any complicated settings or cryptic erasure options. It not only deletes your files securely – it shreds, destroys, and overwrites your data until it becomes untraceable. You are advised to deal with the various erasure methods wisely, as once the wipe process is over, all data erased will be gone for good.
