4. Running Active@ KillDisk for Windows
After you download Active@ KillDisk, you will receive an installation file named KILLDISK-SETUP.EXE. This file contains everything you need to get started.
To install the application, double-click KILLDISK-SETUP.EXE and follow the instructions in the installation wizard.
The installed application contains two main applications:
- Active@ KillDisk for Windows — Run this application from your Windows operating system to scan local drives.
- Active@ Boot Disk Creator — Create a bootable Windows PE, CD/DVD/BD or USB device and run Active@ KillDisk for Windows. Using Active@ KillDisk this way allows you to wipe confidential data from the system cache while gaining exclusive use of a partition because the operating system runs outside the partition that you are securing.
