Hello

I need your help to choose a shredding software that is most effective. I have tried many over time and have been able to pull what was shredded using different recovery softwares. So I’m looking for a shredder that promises irrecoverable shreds regardless of how long they take. I am currently using Kaspersky’s built in shredder. I’ve tried File Shredder, Eraser, and other free ones. I would be okay to buy it but don’t want a one year license software. I really wanted to buy Blancco software but I see how they’re only enterprise. I wish there was a way with them. I’ve seen Killdisk, partitionwizard, diskwipe, whitecanyon (only paid for). I don’t know what to choose.

Aside from that if you know of any recovery software that is the best one of all you can tell me as well since I have tried many of those and get different results form each one. I was using Reccuva but noticed others find more. I tried Disk Drill which is what I discovered finds the most but most files are corrupt. If you know of anything great please let me know.

If you're NOT wanting to physically destroy the drive, best I've seen is DBAN {link below} ===which became the commercial software at Blancco. though they still have a free trial of DBAN. But if you want absolutely 100% assurance that the data can't be recovered, then you must physically destroy the drive...

Big hammer is the only safe way.

Yup... destroy the drive physically. Then burn the wreckage, grind ashes to dust, scatter them over swiftly moving water...

If really keen, rent a hecilopter or small fixed wing plane; fly out over the ocean and scatter ashes there.

I use the repeated hammer method for old hard drives, I imagine drilling many holes into the right are of the drive first might be even better. opening and removing the platters and smashing them might be the ultimate solution though repeated tapping the platters with an arc welder probably should work well too (sent those electrons across the entire room and beyond).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
