Prevent Recovery - Erase the data on your hard drives permanently
Review by on
Some people like to use data recovery utilities on old hard drives, hoping they will find something of value. To prevent something like this when changing your hard drives, you should use a specialized piece of software to make the data unrecoverable. A good example is Prevent Recovery. It's simple and easy to use and it is capable of permanently deleting data, by overwriting the physical information on the disk with random numbers and characters.

The utility is available in free and professional editions, for all modern Windows versions. It can be installed quickly, without making any complex settings. The software doesn't use too much disk space, RAM or processing power and it doesn't need any special tools or services.

Preparing the application to erase data is extremely easy, even for novice users. Prevent Recovery guides you with simple and straight-to-the-point instructions throughout the process, which consists of two important steps. First, you must select the drive you wish to erase and what data to use for overwriting. You can set the software to use numbers, letters, spaces, special signs or all of the above.

With a drive and overwriting method selected, you can proceed to the next step, where you may choose to enable to extra features. Prevent Recovery can be set to delete file records from the Master File Table (MFT) and you can also set it to overwrite free disk space, in addition to any existing data it will shred. This way, you can make sure the entire hard drive will remain clean, with no traces of data on it. In either cases, clicking a check box is all you have to do if you want to use these features.

You can start wiping your disk with a single click, once your preparations are complete. The process will take some time, which is to be expected on any machine, but you can rest easy, knowing that no traces of your data will remain on that drive.

With Prevent Recovery, you can make sure that any information you delete from your hard drive will be gone forever.

The software can erase data permanently. It lets you choose from various overwriting methods. Setting it up is quite easy and it doesn't take long.

You can't choose an overwriting mode in the free version.
