Darik’s Boot and Nuke

Filed under: Information,security

I had an old computer that I wanted to donate to charity, but you hear so much these days about people being able to recover sensitive data even after it’s been erased.

So my old laptop just sat in the corner collecting dust even though I’m pretty sure there is someone who can put it to good use.

Recently I found Darik’s Boot and Nuke which is a free utility which will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect. I went to Sourceforge, downloaded it and tried it out. None of the data recovery programs that I have found anything at all to recover so I believe it works very well.
