HDShredder 4

HDShredder deletes the contents of hard disks and other mass storage media reliably at the physical level. HDShredder can also be applied to individual partitions and the user can select to perform the deletion according to international security standards. HDShredder works independent of partition layout, file sys­tem and operating system. It also works with proprietary formats which otherwise would be inaccessible.
