editor's review




Disk Pulverizer is a reliable and easy to handle software solution that provides you with the ability to safely remove sensitive data stored on your PC, preventing anyone from recovering the files, even when using specialized tools.

Intuitive user interface

Following a brief and uneventful installation process, you can launch the program and begin working with it, as it does not require any experience with similar utilities, nor is it that hard to understand.

The straight-forward interface allows you to quickly add the items that you wish to erase, either by drag and dropping them onto the main window or by double-clicking on its surface, then browsing for the targeted files through your computer and loading them into Disk Pulverizer.

Drag, drop and shred files

After adding the files that you want to remove from your system, you can access the 'Deletion Settings' section of the application and customize the process.

You can select the preferred algorithm from the dedicated menu, with several options to choose from, for instance '(3 Pass) Russian GOST', '(7 Pass) German VSITR', '(3 Pass) US Air Force', '(7 Pass) Bruce Schneier' or '(35 Pass) Gutmann Algorithm', and several others, depending on your needs. Additionally, you can input the number of 'Repetitions', ensuring the proper disposal of your files.

Before pressing the 'Shred Files' button, you can also check the 'Wipe Allocated Free Space' option, for an added level of security. When the process is complete, Disk Pulverizer displays a window informing you of the success of the operation, after which it will exit, so you need to launch the program again if you want to continue working with it.

Handy permanent deletion tool

To summarize, Disk Pulverizer is a useful and efficient application which can help you get rid of all the files and folders that pose a security risk due to their contents, enabling you to destroy them beyond any hope of recovery.
