The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 10.0
East-Tec Eraser 2012 is a program that will securely erase all sensitive information from your computer.
Each time you enter a web page the browser takes notes about the sites you've visited.
When you delete a file, the information still remains on your hard drive, and it is very easy to recover it. Your computer also keeps sensitive information about the videos you view, the documents you read, and a lot of personal data that in the wrong hands can be dangerous for your privacy.
This program takes the whole problem in its hands. It makes it impossible to recover deleted files from your computer by wiping the free space on your hard disk. When you delete files, the operating system just eliminates the name of the file from the FAT, but the data is still there, until it is overwritten. It is easy to recover these files.
The "Privacy Guard" feature erases those files that keep record of your activities. With the help of this program you can erase the email messages, that you decided to delete once and for all. The program can even perform regular cleanings to ensure your privacy.
This latest version comes with updated sensitive areas, such as Adobe Flash Player 11, DownThemAll! 2, Winzip 16, Irfanview 4.3, Camfrog Video Chat 6.1, Internet download manager 6, Mozilla firefox 8, AOL Desktop 9.6, Google Chrome 16 beta, Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, Mozilla Firefox 9.0 beta.
In addition, the program provides a new and faster Risk Monitor, which is now integrated in the program's interface, whereas in the 2011 edition it was a separated module, running in the background.
More than this, the new Entire Driver Module has been added to the latest release of East-Tec Eraser 2012. This feature allows to erase entire disk drives, as well as CDs,DVDs. It works properly in cases when you connect an external hard drive to your computer that can be seen from "My Computer".
To summarise it all up, I would only add that it was very convenient for me to work with this program. I was finally able to clean my computer from too many junk files, which led to my system's performance optimisation.
