Will this work?

8 posts in this topic

Well I want to wipe my disk by writing a bunch of junk on it. I was thinking I could make a HUGE photoshop file of just random pictures, gradients, or whatever. Then, copy it over and over and over until it fills my HD, then delete it. After, make a new picture, copy that one over and over and over... and so on. Will this prevent reading of deleted files on my hard drive?

I think I can make the script easily, just ctrl+v then repeat. Does anyone see a problem with this? But my main question is will writing a bunch of junk on my computer prevent reading deleted files on my computer? I know Norton Systemworks has a program that writes a bunch of junk, but does it do it in a special way or anything?

If your intentions for this was to create a virus or something that might give AutoIt a bad name, good luck getting help...

but anyway, how would you wipe a disk....by filling it up with files?

Well when you "delete" somthing on your computer its not really gone until you have over writen on it and can easily be recovered by any recovery program. For example social security numbers, bills, bank account info, whatever. So, rather then buying a $70 program to clean my drive I could do it myself. This is was gave me the idea http://linuxgazette.net/issue63/nielsen2.html I think pearl is kind of like autoit right?

Create an infinite amount of text files with generate text, and keep creating it in the same folder until the drive is full!!!
