BCWipe Total WipeOut

Description

BCWipe is a secure file deletion tool that uses secure deletion procedures (US DoD, Gutmann) to shred folder and file contents beyond recovery. It can wipe individual files and folders, as well as free disk space and the swap file. The BCWipe Task Manager allows you to create multiple sets of actions and perform them as needed, or on a regular schedule. It includes supports for system folders likebrowser cache, cookies, recent documents, as well as MRU lists. BCwipe also includes CryptoSwap, autility that allows you to encrypt the Windows Swap file, using powerful encryption algorithms.Before disposing of or giving away a laptop, desktop, external hard drive or other removable media, you must be certain that all private data has been erased without any chance of recovery. BCWipe Total WipeOutTM (formerly known as BCWipePD) is a utility utility that securely and permanently erases all data from the entire hard drive, including boot records and operating system files.
To surgically clear selected data, such as wiping free space on an active workstation, see BCWipe.
When files are deleted normally from a disk on your computer, the operating system (for example, Windows or Linux) does not actually erase contents of these files from the disk - it only deletes 'references' on these files from file system tables. Contents of the deleted file (or the file's body) continue to be stored on the disk and can be easily recovered using any undelete utility.
Wiping is a term used to describe a process of shredding contents of a file or disk space so as to make it impossible to recover or restore any data.
BCWipe Total WipeOut utility (formerly known as BCWipePD) is designed for high-security environments - such as government agencies, banks and large corporations -- where there is a need to safely eliminate all contents of hard drives before computers are retired or removed from the premises. BCWipe Total WipeOut is a strong program utility designed to quickly and efficiently wipe disks on large number of computers without wasting time to actually install the software on every computer.
Wiping a whole hard drive (or all hard drives) on the computer with BCWipe Total WipeOut is a simple procedure: you boot the computer using BCWipe Total WipeOut bootable CD and confirm wiping. It is also possible to run BCWipe Total WipeOut with command-line parameters.
For Linux systems, BCWipe Total WipeOut runs from a bootable CD using a kernel of the Linux operating system. Linux is the registered trademark of Linus Torvalds. Linux is distributed according to GNU General Public License (GNU GPL). Source code of the Linux kernel version 2.6.12 used on the bootable CD are available for download from www.kernel.org. Text of GNU GPL is included into BCWipe Total WipeOut distribution.
