OK I know there is enough work to be done to get the standard windows version of Eraser going but I just thought I should post this idea.

Would it be possible to make a version of Eraser that makes a bootable CD ? The benefits would be that when a user boots the Eraser CD they can perform a full free space wipe and get all those locked areas not normally covered as windows wouldn’t be running.

Also the page file and index.dat type files etc could be successfully wiped. Eraser Boot would be very much like DBAN is now but with the important distinction that it doesn’t erase user files unless told to do so. So Eraser Boot will only overwrite the areas around the OS and user data.

Yeah I am going to implement this. I am a little busy at the moment but I will get it going soon.

The idea is to have a minimal Debian/Linux? Kernel backend with a GNOME frontend. So users who liked and could use the command line would use the backend only while the less experienced users would use the graphical interfaces available to them that allows for individual file/folder erasures that otherwise would not been possible.

Any other suggestions would be nice to get the concepts right.
