MediaEraser application is a software designed for erasing information from various digital media storage devices. Its functionality allows for easy and definite way of erasing all data saved on the hard drive or pen drive.
This functionality is based on worldwide standards of overwriting saved data. The user can choose from a handful of algorithms used to overwrite the whole drive area multiple times with selected characters.
The US Department of Defense recommends overwriting the data three times using the DoD 5220.22-M algorithm. In the Mediaeraser application apart from the algorithm recommended by the US DoD there are several others which allow to overwrite the media even eight times.
-Definite and irreversible data erasure ‘bit by bit’ from physical drives as well as partitions
-Wiping the slack space where there can be stored some unwanted fragments of data after deleting files
-Definite and irreversible erasure of files and folders saved on hard drives, Flash memory, disks, etc.
-Erasing physical drives with boot disks
-Efficiency and speed of application operation guaranteed by proficient algorithm
-Erasing by means of randomly generated strings – overwriting data with random characters up to eight times
-Possibility of erasing data using the US DoD 520.22-M algorithm recommended by the US -Department of Defense
-Possibility of defining data erasure method – overwriting data with selected characters a specified number of times
-Supports UNICODE which enables for processing multilingual file systems as well as international diacritical marks
-Supports FAT and NTFS (Windows™ family) file systems
-Possibility of erasing data from writeable drives attached to the computer network
-Full Windows XP and 2000 application functionality
