Remo Drive Wipe
For security purposes, overwriting a file several times is recommended. Many government institutions have specific wiping standards for file deletion. Particularly, the U.S. Department of Defense specification 5220.22 standard says a file must be overwritten three times. For that reason, Remo offers Drive Wipe. Drive wipe not only by unlinks “recycled” files but also specifically overwrites old data with garbage data.
Drive wiping is beneficial for privacy, since most delete functions don’t really delete your data. When a file or folder is selected for deletion, the operating system designates those sectors that your files reside in to be re-writeable. Using data recovery software those deleted files can be easily restored.
Even if you have saved new data to your drive or reformatted, there’s still a possibility that the partition can be rebuilt and files can be restored.
Selling or disposing off a PC creates a serious threat. If you haven’t properly erased the disk, others can reopen and rebuild your personal data.
To securely wipe your drive, Data Sanitizer uses 9 different sanitization standards for drive wiping:
Whether it’s for you or your business, Drive Wipe can safely wipe a drive to make any data recovery effort impossible.
