Ondata Disk Eraser is a software tool which makes it possible to safely
erase data from hard drives. The software used has been developed within
Ondata’s own laboratory and uses a complex algorithm process to ensure
complete selected historical data erasure.
The software will be able to erase data/files from external and internal
hard drives. The software is very simple to operate but extremely powerful
in its operation. To start the process just select the drives and files/data
that needs to finally deleted, then select which of the Worlds leading
eraser programmes you wish to use.
After confirmation that the required data has been erased, it will be
impossible for anybody to access the original data, technology does not
exist today to recover the historical data which has been erased.
With the PLATINUM version of this software programme, the user can select varying
degrees of eraser sophistication. These selectable levels adhere to the most stringent
International military and commercial standards available in the world
The first method is our own internal Ondata Laboratory designed sophisticated algorithm
This method consists of writing a varied pattern of random binary numbers to a specific
data file you have nominated, and by selecting the number of overwrites to be undertaken.
The eraser is completed by the software writing a series of binary zero's to the data file selected,
so ensuring a final and complete data file eraser.
The second method of selectable eraser is using the Department of Defence 5220.22M
This powerful eraser algorithm, cost millions of dollars to produce and is used as a
gold standard within most military I.T. establishments.It is now available to you.
This program will overwrite the selected data files 3 times writing 00110101 then 11001010
and finally 10010111, this ensures "Delete and Forget" process which is second to none.
The third selectable method of eraser is the German BSI VSITR standard. This clever program
in essence writes to the designated data file 7 times, with the first 6 writes the bit is reverts
to 0x00 and 0xFF, on the seventh pass it writes 0xAA.
The forth selectable process is the Gutmann standard. This method consists of generating
a series of predefined patterns. it alternates between frequencies and phases for a maximum
run of 35 times.
Typical erasure times for each selectable programme:
Ondata Laboratory: -120Gb hard drive(complete) takes around 1Hour 27mins
Department of Defence: -120Gb hard drive(complete), takes around 4Hours 25 mins
German BSI VSITR : -120Gb hard drive(complete) takes around 10Hours 25 min.
Gutmann : -120 Gb hard drive, 49 Hours 50 mins.
Once you are advised that the final erasure and deletion of your data is complete,
you can then generate a "Certificate" of eraser compliance from the PLATINUM software.
This certificate can be used as evidence that specific data has been erased from your hard drive
this includes dates, times and specific data of what was finally erased.
The most important aspect of the Platinum version is its ability to have user selectable
deletion and final erasure of partitions and devices. This makes the programme completely versatile
