How to Wipe Disk [MiniTool Wiki]
About Wipe Disk
Wipe Disk can destroy all information in selected disks safely and permanently. This function can ensure the security of users’ privacy as well as unwanted data, and prevent someone from recovering those data.
Once the Wipe Disk operation is carried out by MiniTool Partition Wizard, the data will not be recovered by any data recovery software. If users employ the method of DoD 5220.28-STD, the data can’t be recovered by any data recovery solutions.
How to Wipe Disk
Step 1. Launch the program to enter its main interface shown below. Then select the disk which needs to be wiped and choose Wipe Disk from the left action panel or from the right-click menu.
Step 2. Choose one of the five wiping methods listed on the pop-out window and click OK. Different wiping methods cost different time and bring different security. To be specific, the more time it costs, the higher security you enjoy.
Step 3. Now users can see the selected disk becomes unallocated, which means it will be wiped thoroughly. At this time, please click Apply button to perform all changes.
