Note: To use this command-line utility, you'll need to boot from a floppy that has the program on it. See the CMRR Web site at the link to your left for details.
Though geeky, and only for Windows 32-bit or DOS, hdderase.exe allows you to invoke your hard drive or SSD's secure erase function for super-secure wipes that don't tie up your system.
- Invokes the secure erase function
- Comes on a DOS boot disc
- Won't work on drives with frozen security status
