O & O SafeErase is an application that permanently erases data from computer hard drives. The program is useful for those selling old laptops or computers. The application makes sure that sensitive information will not be retrieved by other users. The application does this by writing over the data more than 30 times to ensure that the files will not be retrieved even by recovery programs.
The program’s main interface shows the Control Center where there is a summary of the files found in the computer. The application is capable of erasing different items, such as temporary files, files in the Recycle Bin, dump files, FTP access data, and many others. It also erases temporary Internet files, such as cookies, history, bookmarks, and saved login information. The main window has four sections: Control Center, Deletion Lists, Reports, and Settings. Users can view information about the computer from these sections.
