Shred Whole Drive
« on: September 25, 2017, 11:50:40 AM »

If I run shred whole drive after a reinstall on c:/ will it delete windows and cause problems whilst doing it.  Or does it just fill up the empty space and delete old windows etc?

It's a bit sketchy in the description as it just says it will shred the whole drive, so I presume all files/folders are gone :/

Data Shredder leaves you drive formatted while removing all of it's information
It does it in such a way that it becomes virtually impossible to recover any of the erased information from that drive.
That's a simple explanation.
It isn't fast but, it's thorough.
