Anyone familiar with the quality/security of the secure erasure application ERASER?
Or come across any articles from experts about it?
I did found this case study that is mentioning Heidi:
The case study references this comparsion:
http://www.sdean12.org/Comparison_Shredders.htm (also from 2006)
They list Eraser (when it was still developed by Sami Tolvanen) as Recommended, and this for any version that was available at that time.
With over 900,000 downloads, CNET has a pretty good rating on it, located here: http://download.cnet.com/Eraser/3000-2092_4-10231814.html
I've personally used it in conjunction with products like Recuva, and without a hitch it does do it's job at least on the low level stuff.
