Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN) Review

" A self-contained boot disk that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. "

Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot disk that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.

DBAN is a means of ensuring due diligence in computer recycling, a way of preventing identity theft if you want to sell a computer, and a good way to totally clean a Microsoft Windows installation of viruses and spyware. DBAN prevents or thoroughly hinders all known techniques of hard disk forensic analysis.

The development and support of the DBAN software project is funded in part by GEEP International. GEEP is the largest, the most efficient, and the most environmentally conscientious consumer electronics recycling company in North America.

Known Problems:

* If you have a computer with an Intel Core Duo processor, then you must use the DBAN 2.0 pre-release to get full performance.

* The keyboard may be unresponsive at the "Device Selection" dialog on some Apple MacBook Pro laptop computers. Use "autonuke" instead of interactive mode on these computers until the bug is fixed.

* If your computer usually crashes, then DBAN is likely to crash with a "kernel panic" or "sanity error" too. DBAN does not run on computers with bad hardware.
