Acronis® Drive Cleanser® 6.0
Product tour. Built-in algorithms
Below you can see screenshots of Acronis® DriveCleanser® 6.0 working with built-in wiping algorithms.
Selecting partitions and/or hard disks for wiping
Wiping of confidential data with Acronis® DriveCleanser® 6.0 begins with selecting partitions and/or disks containing such data. The program provides users with detailed information about disks and their partitions.
The figure shows the primary partition of the second hard disk selected for wiping of the confidential data (it is marked with a red cross).
Deleting a partition and/or a disk after data destruction
In addition to destruction of confidential data, Acronis® DriveCleanser® 6.0 is capable of formatting selected partitions and/or the whole hard disk drives, or deleting partitions. By default partitions and/or disks are selected to be formatted.
Predefined algorithms of data destruction
Acronis® DriveCleanser® 6.0 features the list of predefined algorithms containing known national standards as well as algorithms developed by authoritative experts in data security. For example, the U.S. Standard DoD 5220.22-M and the algorithm of P. Gutmann.
Script of confidential data destruction
After selecting a partition and/or a disk, partition formatting or deletion, and the wiping algorithm, a scripted scenario of data destruction will be created.
No real actions will be performed on a disk up to this point. You can execute the script or reject it by returning a step or several steps to select another partition or new algorithm.
After clicking the Proceed button the script of data destruction will be executed.
The completion of data destruction script
The "Data Destroying Completed" window will inform you that the script has completed its work. You may either end the program by pressing the Exit button (that will result in rebooting the computer), or you may see the results of wiping by pressing the View disks button.
The utility for viewing the contents of hard disk partitions
The DiskViewer utility allows you to see the contents of sectors on hard disk partitions after wiping the confidential data by means of the built-in and custom algorithms.
