Darik's Boot and Nuke 2.2.8

A powerful solution recommended for advanced users that serves to wipe hard disks, being fit for scenarios that involve removing viruses
Darik's Boot and Nuke is a self-contained boot disk designed to automatically erase the contents of any hard disk that it can detect.

This method can help prevent identity theft before recycling a computer. It is also a solution commonly used to remove viruses and spyware from Microsoft Windows installations.

DBAN prevents all known techniques of hard disk forensic analysis. It does not provide users with a proof of erasure, such as an audit-ready erasure report.

Professional data erasure tools are recommended for company and organizational users.
