Permanent Eraser is very useful for anyone that needs to securely remove data, since the operating system doesn't completely remove the files from the hard drive and they remain written on it.

Permanent Eraser uses the Secure Empty Trash feature included with Mac OS X, but also implements the popular Guttman method. Permanent Eraser overwrites your data thirty-five times, making it much harder if not impossible to recover it.

It also truncates the file size and scrambles the original name, and finally it unlinks it from the system, making it unreachable.

The great thing about Permanent Eraser is that the secure deletion process also works with rewritable CDs and DVDs. This feature comes in handy when you need to quickly erase the contents of your CD-RW and DVD-RW discs.

Permanent Eraser also makes use of Automator actions, so you can easily right click the items you want to securely delete, you just have to select Automator and then Permanent Eraser.

Permanent Eraser gives you a real-time progress meter that displays the completion process of all current deletion actions. Moreover, Permanent Eraser successfully integrates with Finder, making it much easier to securely delete the desired files.

The application is also multilanguage and has been translated to Dutch, Traditional Chinese, Swedish, French, Italian and English.
