BCWipe 6.07.20

Use military-grade procedures to surgically remove all traces of any file
When you want to remove files that contain sensitive information, you should make sure they are erased beyond recovery. BCWipe is a nice tool that enables you to delete these items completely.

The program has a simple interface that is quite easy to figure out, thanks to the intuitive layout.

The app integrates in the context menu, so when you want to permanently erase a file you must simply select “Delete with wiping” from the list of options.

Once this option is made, you may define the specific details of the process. Thus, you have to choose one of the available algorithms, such as U.S. DoD 5220.22 M, Peter Gutmann, Bruce Schneier, US Army AR380-19, to name just a few.

Depending on its name, each algorithm has a number of passes that it performs. This number can be increased or decreased to your desire. However, although a higher number of passes means that the file is harder to recover, the process also takes longer.

Furthermore, you may define an action that is to be performed once the process is finished. Also, a log file can be created for all processes performed by the program.

The bottom line is that BCWipe is a nice tool that can completely delete files that contain classified information. Inexperienced individuals shouldn’t have any problems in working with this utility, thanks to the intuitive interface and its overall simplicity.
