Use a Hard Drive Eraser to Completely Clean Your Computer
Identity theft is America's fastest growing crime.
One in four households has been victimized in the last five years. Most victims do not use a hard drive eraser and are unaware that deleting a file or formatting a hard drive does not erase personal data.
A recent study of 129 old hard drives that had not been wiped by a hard drive eraser revealed more than 5,000 credit card numbers, medical correspondences, love letters, pornography, bank account information, and other confidential data.
Because Windows only deletes file records, not file contents, deleted files exist on the free space of your hard drive unless overwritten by a hard drive eraser or other data.
As a result, hundreds of data recovery programs and free utilities available on the Internet can access these files until they are permanently deleted by a hard drive eraser.
Don't risk giving away your personal information.
A hard drive eraser protects you by removing hard drive data permanently and securely. WipeDrive is the perfect hard drive eraser for those who need to erase all types of sensitive hard drive data. WipeDrive hard drive eraser will wipe your hard drive completely clean and protect you against identity theft.
