Eraser Review

When you choose to delete your files on your PC, even when you empty your recycle bin, the actual data on the hard drive is not actually deleted. The data is simply overwritten with new data to speed up the deletion process. The data is not accessible via the operating system, but it is still on your hard disk until the space on the hard disk needs to be used. This is where Eraser comes in to play. This application integrates itself into the right-click menu in Windows to allow you to completely delete the file you want to delete, when you actually choose to delete it. This will prevent the data to remain on the hard disk after the deletion process. 

When you are deleting sensitive data, is it almost essentially to make sure this data is actually gone. Eraser will make sure this data is no longer on the hard disk and is completely deleted. If the files are not completely deleted, if someone was to gain access to the hard drive, the deleted data on the drive can still be retrieved after Windows "deletes" it. Eraser will make sure this is not a possibility. 

One bone I do have to pick with the software is how it is designed. There are a few design flaws that could have made using the application easier to use. Eraser was designed to easily delete files from the right-click menu, but deleting them from within the application itself makes you have to go through the menus to find the "delete" option. I found this to be pretty odd. However, this is a small flaw for that doesn't eliminate the usefulness of the software itself. It is one of the most well-known data shredding software out there and really comes in handy when you want to make sure sensitive data no longer exists when you no longer want it to.
