DESTROY YOUR DATA USING DBAN
In this episode of software Sunday I will show you how to destroy all of your personal data on your computer using DBAN. Darik’s Boot and Nuke, or DBAN for short, writes over your data multiple times using complex sequences making your data irrecoverable. This means instead of destroying a perfectly good hard drive you can pop in a version of DBAN, wipe the drive, and then sell your computer knowing that the next owner will not have access to all of your personal files. DBAN is also a great way to wipe a stubborn drive that will not format through your operating systems’s utilities. DBAN is easy to use, reliable, bootable, and the best part is it is free for home use.
