Purpose
FileNuke is a simple file nuking program. It uses military grade file overwriting, using a number of algorithms and conforms to the recommendations of the National Computer Security Centre.

It will allow you to securely erase files from your hard drive.

More information is available in Peter Gutmann's article entitled "Secure Deletion of Data from Magnetic and Solid-State Memory" which is available online at www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~pgut001/pubs/secure_del.html

There is another informative article here: www1.umn.edu/oit/security/standards/OIT__12704_REGION1.html together with a useful list of alternative software for securely destroying data if you happen to be using a Windows, Mac or Linux machine.

Those interested in privacy and fighting to keep it, may be interested in my other crypto software or in visiting Dr Nat Queen's excellent Acorn crypto pages.
