3.7 Active@ KillDisk

Active@ KillDisk is a powerful utility that will:

  • Wipe confidential data from unused space on your hard drive
  • Erase data from partitions or from an entire hard disk
  • Destroy data permanently

Wiping the logical drive's deleted data does not delete existing files and folders. It processes all unoccupied drive space so that data recovery of previously deleted files becomes impossible. Installed applications and existing data are not touched by this process. Active@ KillDisk wipes unused data residue from file slack space, unused sectors, and unused space in MTF records or system records.

When you erase data with Active@ KillDisk, you destroy data permanently, conforming to any one of six international standards or your own custom settings.

Wiping drive space or erasing data can take a long time, so perform these operations when you are prepared to wait. For example, these operations may be run overnight.
