I'm doing some research for a charity that sends computers to Africa (at the moment mainly Tanzania).
People and buisnesses from all over England donate to us and often they have senstaive information stored on their old PCs that they do not want other people to be able to acsess ever. I have done a lot of searches myself and found hundreds of both free and commercial data wiping utilities all saying that they can do the job. Unfortunately I do not have the time to go through and test them all myself so, my question is this:
Are there any specific data wiping utilities (both for specific data wiping, as in a few files here and there and total disk wipes) that any of you could reccomend. If I can get a nice list of twenty or so recommended programs it will make my life much easier, and remember its for a good cause!
Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
