A straightforward and user-friendly software utility that can overwrite all free space on a hard disk so that files may no longer be recovered

editor's review






If you want to sell your hard drive, it might be a good idea to make sure the data included on it can’t be recovered, regardless of the used methods. Hard Disk Scrubber is a small utility that was designed to permanently delete data from the computer.

The app has a simple interface that should be quite easy to handle, thanks to the intuitive layout.

Even if you perform a complete format on the hard disk, the data there can still be recovered by using specialized apps. By using Hard Disk Scrubber, any leftover data should be destroyed permanently.

Also, this tool can help free up space on the Windows drives and to permanently delete files that are no longer needed, including those that have a sensitive nature.

The deletion of the items can be done through various methods by selecting one of the available algorithms. For instance, you can have the app follow a random pattern or to perform a certain number of overwrites (3, 5 or 9 passes).

The program lets you select the drive you want to scrub and then create a list of the files and folders that are contained. At any time, the list can be cleared entirely or partly.

The bottom line is that Hard Disk Scrubber is a nice tool that can come in handy. Inexperienced users should find it quite easy to work with, thanks to the task’s simplicity.
