Well,I`m not planning anything illegal,but would be interested to know from anyone who has knowledge of the forensic/security services techniques used to examine computer hard drives,just how far down the "secure" route Eraser can go. To put it simply-we know it`s good,but how good? I read that just two or three passes with Eraser will defeat all but the CIA in one case,but in another, the local forces of law and order can read all if required,even tho many multiple overwrites were performed! Also,is the software(if maybe not the hardware) to forensically analyse a "wiped" disc available to the less desirable elements in our society,and thus how careful,if we have really confidential matter,should we be when erasing?
BTW,I`m curious from a common sense level-not paranoia. Thanks!
