Allows you to format hard drives without following data recovery.


  • Parallel erasing of multiple disks at the same time. This saves time and productivity!!
  • Disk wipe sanitation for most file systems. Ensures that your file systems are clean.
  • Displays and monitors health status for all disks. Keeps you informed if there is a threat.
  • Ability to start from any bootable cd or live USB and has the ability to erase disks on any computer.

This program is a good choice for erasing hard drives and disks. The layout is clear and easy to read. The application is easy to navigate even for novice users. It is moderately priced and won't break the bank. I like the easy to use features as they did what the were meant to do. Customer support was very helpful and knowledgeable about the product when I called them to test their competence with the product. Live chat would be helpful to keep me engaged with my work. The software is available in the home, business and enterprise editions. The home version is available as freeware, professional or ultimate versions. The business and enterprise editions are available in industrial versions so all bases are covered from home to business and on to enterprise. Would I recommend this product? Yes. This product does what it promises and does it well with ease and with few hiccups. You can have peace of mind knowing that your data will not be compromised in the case that you donate or discard your drives or computers. This is very important for users that donate large numbers of computers. The software is available for Apple OS X which I should have mentioned earlier but being a loyal Windows user, I failed. Functionality for the OS X version is the same as the Windows version. In conclusion, if you are looking to simplify the long process of wiping your drives and securing your files, buy this product. If you don't mind waiting hours and navigating through a complicated web of misinformation and unnecessary features, buy the competitors product. I think you know which to choose.

It erases disks in one easy step

I am very excited about this product. I am needing to erase some disk drives, but I don't have much experience. I love that this is good for people who don't have a lot of know how on the subject. The whole thing seems like it will be really simple to navigate.

Active KillDisk works like a champ. I was able to erase both of my hard drives with ease. Its interface is really simple and you can not mess up. If you need to erase a hard drive or two this free ware program is the ticket.
