Zeroing a hard disk with Active@ Kill Disk

Introducing Active@ Kill Disk

The Active@ KillDisk utility is one component of the feature-rich Active Boot Disk environment. With Active@ KillDisk, a hard drive can be zeroed out for safe data erasure that a simple hard drive format can't ensure. Active@ KillDisk has a free edition that includes limited functionality, and is a free download from the KillDisk website. Aside from the free products, the Active@ KillDisk utilities include supported tools to perform Department of Defense 5220.22-M clearing and sanitization functionality for compliance-regulated tasks.

Installing the Active@ KillDisk Free Suite gives options to install a number of free utilities.
