Macrorit Disk Partition Wiper is a small utility designed to help you permanently delete files from your computer and hence, make data on your drives unrecoverable.
The program comes with an intuitive and minimalistic interface that is unlikely to give you any troubles, regardless of your technical skills. The UI also displays the three steps that you need to take in order to erase files and other data from your computer.
Therefore, after you specify if you prefer to delete free space only or all data and select the desired overwrite method, you can select the partition or disk and hit the Wipe now button.
You should know that the tool displays a warning if you opt for the delete all data option and asks you to confirm your choice by typing in WIPE. The feature acts as an extra security measure and can help prevent accidental data deletion. The tool displays the progress along with the details about the wiping method until the erase is complete.
The application provides you with basic security wiping options, such as deleting the data and filling the sectors with zeros, one or a combination of zeros and ones. However, it does also include more advanced overwrite options, such as DoD 5220.22-M and DoD 5220.28-STD.
While the first one might be useful for the times when you are required to copy work files to your home computer, the latter alternatives can come in handy in case you intend to sell your hard drive and want to avert becoming a victim of identity theft.
In the eventuality that you need to copy important files and documents to another computer to complete your work or you are planning to sell your laptop or PC in the near future, then Macrorit Disk Partition Wiper provides you a simple solution to wipe the data that was stored on your drives and partitions.
