    You DO get a lot of "Disk--Writes" when constantly using programs such as "Eraser", you need to keep in mind that the Corporations that these programs were designed for , were probably replacing there HDD's every 1000 hours ....

    I mean a "Gutmann" pass does 35 wipes, and thats healthy for your HDD??

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
