I just bought and have up and running my EX4100. Love it.
Previously I had a system of backing up by copying my C drive to hard drives and wrapping them in aluminum foil with a paper documenting what they were.
I have successfully transfered their contents to my EX4100. I would like to erase these hard drives (not merely delete files) and I am somewhat overwhelmed by the choices to do this.
Also, I am thinking that probably as I get more and more into managing my files as I have more and more of them, I might need other drive utilities.
So my questions are this.
What is a good piece of software to clean a disk?
Should I get some type of drive utility that has as one of its features drive erasure? I ask this question since I am suspecting that I will likely discover I need some other feature and I don’t want to end up with a lot of little sofware programs that do one thing.
What software would also erase thumb drives?
I have decided that CCleaner isn’t an option since it had an episode with malware being in the product. Also, there was a scandal about the software reporting user information back to the company.
Thanks for what help you can give.
