Securely delete all traces of your data! O&O SafeErase allows you to permanently delete your data using recognized methods so that no one can get to your data, even when using specialized software.
Using internationally recognized methods, O&O SafeErase deletes sensitive data so securely that a reconstruction, even with special software, is no longer possible. In the new version 7, an analysis function has been integrated which searches for data that was deleted non-securely. With just a few clicks, the computer can be cleaned to such an extent that unauthorized persons have no chance to dig out old files and misuse them.
All files, settings, applications and operating system are deleted so that a recovery is impossible. It is possible to delete the entire computer including the system partition without boot media. After restarting the system the deletion process begins automatically. Should an SSD not support TRIM, the data is simply overwritten with zeros to avoid wear effects.
Don’t give data spies a chance!
What happens to your old computer or hard drive when you get a new one? Do you return your company’s computers to the leasing company or even sell your laptop on the Internet? In that case, there are good chances that complete strangers might gain access to your private pictures, letters or business secrets.
The fact of the matter is, data deleted using Windows is not really deleted!
Unauthorized persons can still recover your digital pictures as well as your personal and company data, even if you formatted the disk eforehand. Surfing the Internet leaves its mark as well: On the basis of the Internet browsing history stored on your computer, it’s easy to generate an accurate profile of your preferences, see the pages you’ve visited, and even scan the files you’ve downloaded. Protect yourself by using O&O SafeErase to permanently delete all data from your hard disk using scientifically recognized methods.
The analysis tool of O&O SafeErase 7 lets you track down and immediately remove all the files that are a security risk on your computer. What’s more, data from SSDs can now be permanently deleted as well using methods that go sparingly on resources. Never take chances with your data: SafeErase it!
When surfing the Internet, your browser usually stores Internet files on your hard disk unnoticed. These files can provide information about websites you’ve visited or the passwords you’ve entered. Makes no difference whether it involves cookies, data entered on forms, or browsing history – O&O SafeErase lists all the information saved for each browser you use, and you can then SafeErase them individually or as a bundle. Once deleted, nobody will be able to detect your Internet activity and your online accounts are protected from unauthorized access.
SafeErasing your entire computer
Deleting the entire computer allows you to permanently remove all data before you dispose of, sell, or give your computer away. All files, settings, applications. and the operating system itself are deleted so that recovery is impossible. You can be sure that nobody will ever restore your data and misuse it. With O&O SafeErase, you can even delete your entire computer without a start medium (e.g. Boot CD).
Six methods for your security
O&O SafeErase allows you to choose from among six different deletion methods. The methods of deletion differ in the number of runs and the type of overwriting process. These methods ensure maximum security, whatever your requirements.
In addition to standardized deletion methods of the U. S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) you can also select a complex mathematical method (Gutmann method), which is en par with the highest security levels. In this scientifically approved method of data deletion, corresponding areas of the hard disk are overwritten 35 times using precisely defined rules along with fixed and random values. In this way, O&O SafeErase exceeds even the requirements of the DoD and the BSI. Quick deletion can also be made by just overwriting data with zeros.
