If you have read my how to erase a harddrive tutorial then you know I’m a big proponent of free software. Here is my top three free utilies for 2009.
- Darik’s Boot and Nuke (“DBAN“) load this up to your floppy or other bootable disk and you can securely wipe the harddrive of most computers.
- Bacula is a set of Open Source, enterprise ready, computer programs that permit you (or the system administrator) to manage backup, recovery, and verification of computer data across a network of computers of different kinds.
- Free open-source disk encryption software for Windows Vista/XP, Mac OS X, and Linux
