Windows 7: What about this program

What about this program

This is supposed to wipe clean your hard disk.. in case one wanted to clean it before giving it away
or selling a pc.. or laptop. I prefer to be on the safe side myself.

Comments plz... it's Free to download and use.
Thank you

Kucing .. of the 2 programs.....which one would you prefer or use ?...I think I had the ERASER program you mentioned above on my Windows XP, desktop.

I just think it's a good idea to have one for that issue.
Thank you for your reply.

If it is HDD then this is what you are looking for,, This does what Dban and all others can not do.

HDDErase - securely erases data completely
There i no reason to not use this as it uses a builtin function of the Hard Drive.

If it is an SSD, then I don't know what you would use.

You will get a lot off different programs recommended and it boils down to personal preference.Dban has a very good reputation and you could not go wrong with it
Have you had a look at Hirens boot CD, it is a bootable disc that gives you a vast selection of software as well a a live version of XP
