Darik’s Boot and Nuke (DBAN for short) is a free killer hard drive data erasure application, supports independent boot, can safely and completely erase all the data of most computer hard drives (unrecoverable, this means general data recovery software are helpless), lets some people follow no trace. Because DBAN can automatically detect hard disks, this makes it an ideal utility for batch or emergency data destruction.

Such software are most often applied to computer recycling industry, or the guys who want to sell their old hard disks, because the data stored in hard drive are not really gone simply by deleting, there is still the possibility of recovery. So, next time when you want to wash old computer out, remember to use the DBAN to wipe it first, in order to avoid your personal data accidentally leaked.

BTW, Darik’s Boot and Nuke has CD ISO and USB flash disk two editions, which can be directly used to start the computer and complete the data removal when installed.
