S. Petersburg, Russia, 2009/07/11 - FreeSecuritySoft.Net is introducing their latest software, Security Soft: File Eraser, an advanced open source security tool.
FreeSecuritySoft.Net, the company that provides open source security tools for digital life, is introducing their latest software, Free Security Soft: File Eraser, an advanced security tool, which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your computer. It will be the second open source product, realizing the high-quality standard of data protection. The English language version of the software is available now at the developer's website for free download.
Saving personal data continually becomes more important (but a bit more complicated), and maintaining privacy is not as simple as it may have seemed at first. When a file is deleted, the operating system does not completely remove the file from the disk; it can be easily retrieved by a disk maintenance or an undelete utility.
This problem was taken into consideration when Free Security Soft: File Eraser was designed, and because of this intuitive design, anyone can safely and easily erase private data from a disk. The patterns used for overwriting are based on Peter Gutmann's paper "Secure Deletion of Data from Magnetic and Solid-State Memory". They are selected to effectively remove the magnetic remnants from the hard disk, making it impossible to recover the data. Other methods include the one defined in the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual of the US Department of Defense and overwriting with pseudorandom data.
Features: Free Security Soft: File Eraser allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard disk by overwriting it several times with different patterns. You can drag and drop files and folders to the on-demand eraser, use the convenient Explorer shell extension, or use the integrated scheduler to program overwriting of unused disk space, browser cache files, etc.
