    1x Eraser

    This is free: EASIS Data Eraser
    Go here: EASIS Data Eraser
    EASIS Data Eraser 2.11.exe comes with 6 methods, including Bruce Schneier7 passes. It is an executable file, not an ISO one. EDE-setup.exe
    The first option passes 1x (00 for all sectors) and ends in a BSOD. This is good enough! On next clean install, Windows sees nothing, it can erase nor format the hard drive.

    The German way is 8 passes, but the Gutman guy’s method passes 35 times?

    NB If in the first ten minutes, you are experiencing desktop stability issues, redo the clean install immediately. The Tumbleweed installer did not like the operation.

    Anyone with this level of paranoia should know, that disks have a hidden storage, where removed data are stored indefinitely. Besides data have been recovered from physically damaged disks, which have also been erased like this. Logically, if you overwrite data once, they should be unrecoverable, yet some go as far as to overwrite them multiple times. That should give you a hint, if one time is not good enough, what makes you think, that 100 times will make any difference?! It is just saying 100 times: the data is gone, the data is gone, ...

    I'd like to ask what brand of tinfoil (aluminum foil) makes the most effective headwear to prevent voices from being beamed into our heads.

    Any advice?
