Free File Wipe is a free tool to quickly and securely erase sensitive information from your hard disk, ensuring that no data recovery product or agency can access it.
What sets Free File Wipe apart from other tools is that it's guaranteed to erase information securely off the hard drive. This means that no uneraser, undelete tool, or data recovery product, no matter how sophisticated, will ever be able to gain access to wiped information.
But why is it so important to wipe information off your hard disk? When you delete a file or folder in Windows, the system doesn't actually erase the information. Instead, it just marks the file as "deleted," releasing the disk space occupied by that file as available. This exact mechanism is being employed by every data recovery tool in existence and exploited by every malicious person who wants to access your sensitive information.
This is where Free File Wipe comes in. It'll not just mark the files as "deleted"; instead, Free File Wipe will actually open each file you want permanently gone, and overwrite its content with random numbers. This process ensures that if anyone tries to recover that file afterwards, all they'll get will be meaningless digital garbage.
In short, if you want to get rid of some files and want to make sure they're gone forever, you'll need a proper tool. Free File Wipe accomplishes that task and does so securely, efficiently, and for free.
