Windows 7: How can I unlock my hard drive clean with HDAT2?

03 May 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit


Rufus can scan and create a bootable pen drive only with the latest version of the pwhe78.iso. (With older ISOs Rufus failed to scan.) You should download the latest pwhe78.iso . I have created and tested it umpteen times. Did it again just now. Check the time of screenshots.(Rufus gives the Volume Label as CDROM for the pen drive)

windows 7 professional 64bit

I downloaded the latest version and it still says failed to scan... I do not know whats wrong with the ISO or Rufus? But I did get UBCD on my usb again, and loaded up dariks boot and nuke, then I remove my usb press enter, then it takes like 5 minutes of random numbers letters and errors just scrolling continuously to get to the interactive screen. Once I am in the screen it sees my hitachi hard drive. so for I choose the quick erase method and press f10 to start. but immediately after I press f10 it just goes black and white and starts scrolling on forever with [x.x] ata1:00 followed by some words like "failed" "error" "status" and "complete" the x.x part being a number that rises to infinity.... so I am thinking this Dban way might be the way to go as this and ubuntu I have gone the farthest with... so anybody here experienced with Dban?

So you think your Hard drive is CLEAN
Hi all Whilst not W7 specific per se this is really important if you think you've found a Virus and are just using the "Infection Processes" supplied by your AV software. Even a FORMAT of a hard disk doesn't erase or make old data inacessible. Read this BBC NEWS | Wales | Missile data...
