Permanent Eraser is a utility that can be used to securely delete files. It offers an even stronger level of security which consists in the implementation of Gutmann Method.
Permanent Eraser overwrites your data thirty-five times, scrambles the original file name and truncates the file size to nothing before Permanent Eraser finally unlinks it from the system.
Once your data has been erased, it can no longer be read through traditional means.
Here are some key features of "Permanent Eraser":
· Permanent Eraser fills in what the Finder forgot! Simply drag a CD-RW or DVD-RW onto Permanent Eraser to erase the disc's contents.
Automator + Services:
· Mac OS 10.4+ users get to make use of the bonus Automator Actions and Finder plug-in built to work with Permanent Eraser. Right-click on items you want to destroy and select Automator → Permanent Eraser, or make use of the Erase Trash and Erase Selected Items Automator Actions. Snow Leopard and Lion users get to make use of the new contextual Service menu to easily erase a file.
· Not only has the progress meter's accuracy greatly increased over earlier versions, but it is also displayed from the Dock's icon.
· Don't want to take up more space in your already cluttered Dock? Instead, drag Permanent Eraser into your Finder's toolbar or sidebar for easy access to wipe away the files you no longer need. Click the icon to empty your Trash, or drag and drop files to erase them.
