Best Free Hard Drive Erase Software

Why you need a hard drive eraser 

There are various reasons, for example, hard drive upgrade, removing virus or malware, etc may force you to wipe the partition. The most common one is that you bought a new computer or a new hard drive and you want to use it to replace the old one. At this moment, you need a hard drive to erase software to wipe your data on the old device, no matter you plan to give the device to your families, friends or sell it to others. It is the best way to protect your personal information or data from being leaking. 

Here many people might think that they can clean the data off the old drives by deleting instead of using a third-party hard drive erase software. But is it really a safe way? Of course not. Simply deleting, hard drive formatting and OS reinstalling just hide your data by removing the directory reference to the data other than actually remove its contents. And in most cases, your data is still completely accessible by some data recovery software or skilled computer hackers. That's why we recommend you to use third-party hard drive erase software. Such programs can ensure your data is completely erased and unrecoverable.

  • It won't hot image your drives or align them, but since it's coupled with a partition manager, it allows you do perform many tasks at once, instead of just cloning drives. You can move partitions around, resize them, defragment, and more, along with the other tools you'd expect from a cloning tool.
