Fast bootable disk wipe program
We previously write about how to fast empty disk, but what's the fastest way to wipe a hard drive? To fast wipe a hard drive is to overwrite with sufficient passes on the disk. Fortunately, one pass overwriting is enough to make a disk clean again.
In ByebyeData Eraser, we built-in 14 overwriting methods, 3 of which are 1-pass algorithms, the simple overwrite methods, they have the same speed, but fill sectors with different characters.
Zeros (the default setting) is to fill sectors with zeros, while Ones to fill with ones instead and Pseudo-random is to fill with random characters.
To wipe is not to delete nor format, speed of deletion or formation maybe faster than wiping speed, but less security. If the disk you're erasing is about to reuse by yourself and you're the only person to access it, there's no need to erase, simple delete or format will just save your time. When it comes to donate or resell the hard drive, overwrite the hard drive is surely much slower, please be patient and during this time, you can check this page talking about how long it will last to erase a hard drive.
