AweEraser - Data shredding application
Review by on
If you intend to sell or get rid of a hard drive, you will obviously format it so you don't leave any of your old data on it. However, if you've used the drive to store sensitive data, you may want to take an extra step to make sure the files are permanently deleted and unrecoverable. AweEraser was created for this particular purpose. Besides deleting files, it will also scrub the physical data on the disk and replace it with something else. This way, you can make sure that none of your files will ever be salvaged, regardless of the used recovery software.

AweEraser is free to try, but with some limitations. The software comes in a small package and it can be installed quickly and effortlessly. It works on all popular Windows platforms and it supports both 32 and 64-bit editions. Its hardware requirements are modest and you don't have to install any prerequisite tools.

Shredding data is quite easy. All you have to do is load your files or folders onto the application's user interface and click a button. Additionally, you can select a different shredding algorithm, in the lower right corner of the window. AweEraser supports various protocols, including ones used by the US Army, which involve making multiple passes over the same location on the disk.

The software is not limited to shredding targeted files and folders. It can also help you completely scrub a hard drive. You can choose to erase all data from a drive and you can also erase its free space. The procedure is just as simple, but it may take longer to complete, especially if a more complicated algorithm is selected.

Besides user defined files, folders and drives, the software can also erase traces you leave behind when surfing the web. You can set it to erase caches, browsing history, cookies, saved passwords and other information, from each browser you have installed on your computer. All it takes is a few clicks and the information will be gone forever.

When erasing data with AweEraser, it is as if the data never existed in the first place.

AweEraser supports multiple shredding algorithms. It can shred files and folders, erase hard drives and their free space and it can also erase Internet browsing traces. The software has a clean and simple design and it is quite easy to use.

The trial version has some limitations.
