Hardwipe is a free data sanitization toolset used by activists, journalists, IT technicians and anyone needing to ensure that discarded, but sensitive, information can never be recovered by someone else.

Hardwipe provides a slick user interface with optional support for 'right-click' context menus in Windows File Explorer. Use Hardwipe to conveniently and permanently erase (or 'hard wipe') data on disk and portable storage media. It can conveniently destroy files and folder contents on-demand, erase drives and USB media, and sanitize the Windows Recycler.

Hardwipe gives you the freedom to securely erase: Physical Devices, Logical Volumes, Files/Folders, Recycler Bins, Free (unused) Drive Space and Windows Pagefile. It also offers read-back verification, report logs, and supports all major sanitization schemes, including: GOST R 50739-95, DOD 5220.22-M, Schneier and Gutmann.

Hardwipe is free for non-commercial use (some premium features require a paid upgrade). ANNOUNCEMENT: 10% of Hardwipe sales go to small charities where every donation makes a big difference.

When your old data is more valuable to someone else than you, don't just 'delete' it -- hardwipe it!

    Deletes everything from my disk permanently which are far beyond recovery in any ways no matter how it is tried out. If you are worried about the data that you have deleted try this to make them unrecoverable.
