Yes, DsikDeleter supports Cryptographic Erasure. Crypto Erasure takes only a few seconds and thus if a device needs to be sanitized fast, this is an ideal solution. You can further overwrite disks with values of your choice if so desired.

DiskDeleter can wipe up to 16 disks simultaneously by multi-threading. The number of disks DiskDeleter can recognize at a time is in theory unlimited, but we recommend maximum 16 disks for a simultaneous operation for both built-in and external disks.

※ If you need to increase the maximum number of disks for simultaneous operations, please contact us. Customization for charge may be possible.

Yes

DiskDeleter USB contains an OS which boots a PC before a PC’s Windows OS starts, and deploys its program on a PC’s system memory. So DiskDeleter can work with a PC that stopped running, as long as the PC is physically intact.

Time to wipe a device varies depending on factors like device type, storage size, Memory, CPU, etc., as well as deletion method selected.
These are sample results of our benchmark test using [ Zero Write ] deletion method.

After disk was wiped, DiskDeleter can capture and output [ S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology ] report in text format. SMART detects and reports various indicators of drive reliability with the intent of anticipating imminent hardware failures. This data helps in evaluating the re-usability of the disk.

Note: When capturing SMART data, DiskDeleter needs to be connected to a device directly, not though USB cable. SMART data are constantly updated, and therefore a snapshot SMART data should be taken as an approximation. To capture accurate data, a disk needs to support SMART.

If write errors had occurred during wipe operation, DiskDeleter reports such errors and shows a list of bad sectors up to 100 incidences. This provides accurate information on bad sectors of the device.
If deletion log includes write errors, the log report is displayed in red letters. When a red letter report is saved, the file is saved as [xxxxBADSECTOR.txt ] which automatically includes bad sector reports.
Many bad sectors typically indicate HDD's magnetic-force has deteriorated and it is not suitable for re-use.

When an evidence of deletion / sanitization is requested by customers, auditors, corporate management, etc., please provide two files automatically created by DiskDeleter; [ xxxxx_AT.html ] and [ xxxxx_HASH.txt ]. These two files are encrypted and only if the two files match, DiskDeleter Deletion Certificate will open.

The certificate proves the device is sanitized, i.e., data was completely deleted.
DiskDeleter's deletion certificate is generated in a way tightly integrated in its deletion process and the forgery of the certificate is impossible.
For its tamper proof nature, DiskDeleter's data deletion certificate is accepted for audit purposes.
Many organizations outsource the data deletion, especially when returning lease, disposing devices, etc.
Unfortunately there are contractors who are less than scrupulous and serious data leakages have occurred in the process.
It takes a significant amount of time to sanitize large capacity disks and some contractors report the completion of the work by submitting forged reports or only paper reports without a proof.
It is not easy for most people to verify deletion reports and therefore the security concern was growing.
DiskDeleter's tamper proof deletion certificate is the solution to these risks and concerns.

Yes, with DiskDeleter UX / TX, you can automatically save the deletion logs on a network drive.
Multiple deletion logs can be managed centrally by saving them in a shared folder on the company network.

DiskDeleter supports internal disks (HDD · SSD) as well as external storages including USB memory.

Supported storage

 Storage interface  SATAeSATAmSATAM.2PATASCSISASUSBetc
 Storage type  HDDSSDeMMCFlash memory such as USB memory / SD card

No.  Surface RT has a different architecture (neither UEFI nor BIOS), which is incompatible with DiskDeleter UX.
DiskDeleter UX is compatible with the Surface Pro series.

* For RT, we recommend using the recovery OS.

Yes, DiskDeleter does support.

DiskDeleter can wipe up to 16 disks simultaneously by multi-threading.  The number of disks DiskDeleter can recognize at a time is in theory unlimited, but we recommend maximum 16 disks for a simultaneous operation for both built-in and external disks.

* If you need to increase the maximum number of disks for simultaneous operations, please contact us.  Customization for charge may be possible.

No. DiskDeleter UX works on 64 bit devices with UEFI only firmware such as Surface and Mac, as well as typical PCs with BIOS / UEFI firmware. For more detail, please refer to the DiskDeleter supporting device table.

Yes, DiskDeleter wipes the entire physical disk including the recovery area.

Bad sector may cause a write error during a data deletion process. If an error has occurred,  DiskDeleter skips the bad sector and continues the deletion.

Such errors are recorded and upon completion, Deletion Report shows the error sectors; “Deletion  result: end”, Error sectors: xxxx.

No, iPad / Android tablets are not supported.
“DiskDeleter TX” supports Windows tablets only.
