Disk Wipe Editor's Review

Ensuring your data is properly and securely removed is a great way to help protect your privacy and your data from theft. Therefore, it’s really important that your disks and hard drives are properly wiped and data is efficiently removed from them if you’re giving away a hard drive, selling one, or lending a memory stick to someone, otherwise data is easily accessible and recoverable. Performing a simple deletion (removing from the recycle bin) isn’t enough, and Disk Wipe is one application you can use to help ensure safe and secure removal of your data.

Disk Wipe Portable is a very simple application. The disks and drives that are available for wiping are listed down the left hand side of the window with their title, drive letter and icon. Simply selecting a disk will bring its details into focus in the main section of the window, where you can view information such as its serial number, file system type, OEM name and further technical information that may be useful to more advanced users.

When you are ready to wipe your disk, click the disk you want to erase, on the left hand side. Then click the Wipe Disk button in the top left hand corner. At this point, a popup box will appear, asking you which File System you would like to format the disk in. By default, NTFS is selected and unless you know you specifically want a file system different to this, I suggest you leave it as it is. You also have the option to perform a quick format or not by selecting the check box at the bottom. For a more thorough erase, do not perform a quick format.

The next page lets you specify to what extent you want your data removed, there are seven different levels to which you can format your disk, each one more secure than the last but also taking longer. How quick each one will finish, and how many passes each method carries out is indicated in brackets.

Finally, once you are ready to remove all data, you are warned that data will be destroyed and it won’t be recoverable. If you are sure you want to proceed, type ERASE ALL into the box, and click Finish to start erasing the disk. Now, sit back and wait for the process to complete – this can take anywhere between a few minutes to a few days, depending on which options you selected.

Disk Wipe Portable is very simple and easy to use. There’s no use of unnecessary jargon – however some has to be used due to the nature of the application. It incorporates an easy step by step process which is easy to follow and consists of only a few steps, and doesn’t make securing your disk seem like a daunting or off-putting task. It’s also freeware, therefore I’m very impressed with Disk Wipe and the many different deletion methods it offers. Overall, I would rate Disk Wipe 4/5.
