Eraser is an advanced security tool for Windows which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several timeswith carefully selected patterns.
When you delete a file, the operating system does not really remove the file from the disk; it only removes thereference of the file from the file system table. The file remains on the disk until another file is created over it, and even after that, it might bepossible to recover data by studying the magnetic fields on the disk platter surface.
There are several problems in secure file removal, mostlycaused by the use of write cache, construction of the hard disk and the use of data encoding. These problems have been taken into consideration whenEraser was designed, and because of this intuitive design and a simple user interface, you can safely and easily erase private data from your harddrive.
