The program is an ISO file that needs to be written on a CD or DVD as bootable disc. After you create a bootable disc with DBAN, insert it into PC, restart computer, boot from DVD/CD-ROM and you will be able to use it. I created a bootable ISO disc (DVD) very easy with Free ISO Burner.
Is intended to destroy completely all data and information from hard disk. It supports IDE, SATA, PATA, SCSI and SAS discs. Doesn't work with RAID technology.
Once you boot from DBAN disc, you can access menus to learn more about the program, view a list with commands, use it in interactive mode or in automatic mode.
It provides different deletion algorithms to wipe/erase data from all hard disks, you can select a desired one pressing F2 (will display a list).
- different deletion methods
- works only in boot mode
