    Do NOT try this. I just had to re-image 3 computers. Yes, beta, I know...but man! Free Space Wipes deleted files. Boot files and data (pics, music, etc...) Hard lock ups, etc...

    PD

    It's crippleware as well. Try to do this and that and you're told it isn't available in the trial version - even in beta! For example, you're limited to one-pass wipes. What's there to "trial?"

    Perhaps this is the chief selling point.

    New wiping standards added:

    British HMG IS5 (Baseline, Enhanced)
    Canadian RCMP TSSIT OPS-II
    NAVSO-P5239-26
    Russian GOST R 50739-95
    US Army AR380-19


    I'm one of those very attentive to accurately smoothing out Hard Drive platter surfaces with software wipers. Using Smart NTFS Recovery in combo with DriveDiscovery followed by an old relic Restoration is a normal health routine of free space wiping which keeps performance at optimum on all Physical Drives & continues to yield flawless success. Works best if first use a consolidated mass file/folder placement defragger (Mine is DiskTrix) and ending in like manner.

    Dunno about Jetico BCWipe but even Heidi's Eraser (free) is proved stable enough for normal "Safe" use. I simply try to avoid certain wiper's ALGORITHM'S that take up too much time.

    I wanted to update this. I gotta say their customer service is awesome. They replied within 24 hours (They're in Finland) and confirmed that I found a major bug and that it allowed them to find and fix it. I own a BCWipe license, so they are going to extend it a year. It *is* in beta and v5 doesn't have the problem. I'm happy, images saved the day and I didn't lose anything. I'm going to keep testing it. Thought they should get the props.

    PD
