Version 3.0 Released on: May 23, 2000
New feature: The Privacy Guard An intuitive, easy to use wizard feature designed to protect your computer and Internet privacy and get rid of sensitive information stored without your knowledge or approval. Use it to remove all evidence of your offline and online activity. With Privacy Guard you can:
  • Protect your computer privacy by eliminating sensitive information stored by the Windows operating system without your knowledge or approval. This feature will destroy all sensitive information stored in the Windows swap file or in temporary files and remove all evidence of your computer activities (information about the programs you have run, the list of documents you have opened, etc.).
  • Protect your Internet privacy by eliminating all traces of your Web browser activities: texts, pictures, sounds, the list of sites you have visited, history, cookies, etc. This feature works with both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator.
  • Get rid of files and folders that usually contain sensitive data. With this special feature you can select any number of files of folders that should be erased beyond recovery each time you run the Privacy Guard.
New feature: Eliminate Deleted E-Mail
  • An intuitive, easy to use wizard feature designed to help you ensure that nobody will recover your deleted e-mail messages. No matter what e-mail program you are using (Outlook Express, Netscape Messenger, Eudora, etc.), this three-step wizard will be able to help you ensure that previously deleted e-mails are gone for good.
  • No more “locked” sensitive files, no more security leaks.
  • Some files that contain a lot of sensitive data cannot be accessed while Windows or other products are running. The files are “locked” by Windows or by the other products and cannot be erased. One of these files is the Windows swap file (paging file under Windows NT/2000), the file used by Windows for virtual memory support. east-tec Eraser 2000 is now able to ensure proper deletion of these “locked” files when Windows starts, before Windows or other products have the chance to “lock” them.
  • A utility designed for Windows 95, 98, Me, NT and 2000.
  • east-tec Eraser 2000 works with Windows 95, 98, NT and even with the new Windows 2000 and Windows Me. More, it is designed to use enhanced features offered by Windows NT and Windows 2000 for improved security while running under these operating systems.
Improved interface
  • east-tec Eraser 2000 looks better and it is easier to use. The main features of the product are now more intuitive and designed in a Wizard style. Hints, tips and short explanations will guide the user and help him start using the product and the new features in almost no time.
Version 2.0 Released on: May 12, 1999
  • New feature: Erase for Good This powerful feature has the purpose to destroy any data from previously deleted files that may still be accessible on your disk. In previous versions this was accomplished by using two different erasing capabilities of Eraser: wiping the disk free space and wiping the files slack. In version 2.0 these two capabilities merged to create the Erase for Good feature, which was also added the ability to destroy the contents of the Recycle Bin beyond recovery.
  • New feature: The Sensitive Data Cleaner The Sensitive Data Cleaner clears the contents of folders that usually contain sensitive data. This feature will allow you to quickly get rid of your Web browser cache (or Temporary Internet files), cookies, history, the recent document list, etc. And because the Sensitive Data Cleaner uses the wiping capabilities of Eraser, you will get rid of that sensitive data for good.
  • New wipe methods east-tec Eraser now comes with two new highly secure wipe methods:
    • 3+7+3 Beyond DoD Standards: A secure (but slower) 13 pass wipe method, exceeding the U.S. Department of Defence (DoD) standards. The first 3 passes are with random patterns, the next 7 passes are the standard passes from the DoD standard and the last 3 passes are with random patterns. The last pass is checked.
    • Stop Hardware Recovery (Gutmann): A highly secure (but slow) 35-pass wipe method, based on Peter Gutmann’s paper “Secure Deletion of Data from Magnetic and Solid-State Memory”. The method is designed to erase data regardless of the disk raw encoding. It effectively removes the magnetic remnants from disk, preventing hardware recovery tools from restoring any data.
  • With these two new wipe methods (and especially with the second), east-tec Eraser is now ready to stop even the most advanced hardware recovery tools.
  • File name deletion in Windows 98 and 95 Eraser is now able to completely destroy the names of files that are erased in Windows 98 and 95 (on FAT drives: FAT12, FAT16 or FAT32)
  • Improved Windows Shell (Explorer) Integration via context menus (a new command, Erase beyond recovery, to the context menu of any file or folder; a new command, Wipe deleted data, to the context menu of drives; a new command, Erase beyond recovery, to the context menu of the Recycle Bin). east-tec Eraser is also available in the Send To menu. A shortcut to east-tec Eraser is also available on desktop for erasing via drag and drop. You can set the Eraser shell integration options directly from Eraser.
  • Improved wipe method handling The dialog box that allows you to manage the wipe methods was completely redesigned. For each wipe method you may now see a detailed description, the security level (Low, Normal or High), whether the wipe method can stop software or hardware recovery tools and whether it can be used to wipe compressed drives.
  • Improved command-line support, new command-line parameters
Version 1.0 Released on: October 1, 1998
  • Improved erasing/wiping routines, improved error-handling, better logging capabilities, improved support for large FAT32 drives.
  • Drive erasing Eraser now accepts drives in the list with items to be erased, therefore you may erase drives with all their files and folders. USE THIS FEATURE WITH CARE!
  • A new, improved progress box The progress box (the dialog box that is displayed while Eraser is erasing/wiping) was added an overall progress indicator that shows the percent of files/folders/drives that was already erased/wiped.
  • Many improvements in the interface: the wipe options are now displayed in a page of the Erase Options dialog box (the Wipe Options dialog box no longer exists – changing erase settings is now easier and faster as there is only one dialog box that displays erase options). The current wipe method is now displayed in the status bar.
  • Improvements in the documentation, new topics in the on-line Help (including a Frequently Asked Questions section), a new file SURVEY.TXT (user survey form) added to the package, a better ReadMe file (this file), etc.
  • Improved command-line support, new command-line parameters
