the software reviews
"Here is a wonderful Romanian program for securely deleting "deleted" information. The Pro version has the capability to exceed Department of Defense standards for making wiped data irretrievable even by forensic methods. The standard version will work against software recovery tools. The program is also very handy for space maintenance as it can erase all temp files, Google search bar entries, Windows Media Player data files, cookies, history, internet offline content, and much more. If you share a computer with family, this is a real must. The coding is solid and the interface is easy to use."
I wrote the above in 2003, when reviewing East-Tec Eraser on my former web-site. Eleven years later, I still stand behind every word. Eraser is one of the first utility softwares I purchased. It is in constant use down to this day. I have been running the same XP Pro platform for this duration and it purrs like a kitten.
I would not use a computer if Eraser wasn't installed on it. I would walk to the bank and wait in line for a teller. Besides the obvious security issues which Eraser addresses, the maintenance aspects of this tool will lengthen the life of any computer, just as servicing a car will do the same.
Having tested and tried hundreds of softwares when I was reviewing for my site, I can say with authority again that the coding is solid. Just as corners may be cut in every other business and industry, software is no exception. I have tried out softwares that were Frankenstein monsters, sloppily glued together from a half dozen other people's unfinished work. Some lazy boy made a few quick bucks that way. He made thousands of fools wise and zero repeat customers.
When I began dealing with the folks at East-tec, I knew I had found something special, something that used to be the norm and sadly, is no more. Integrity is what I am talking about. Do your best, build something good and they will come. Start small and slow. Increase no faster than you can maintain quality and control over your product. Build a reputation based on facts. Keep your word and keep your original vision. That's what I was taught growing up in Texas. East-tec fits this description perfectly. Many others add bloat to a good product and thus ruin it for the long-time user. Eraser has only added utility and universality, not fluff.
I have two other softwares beside East-tec Eraser, which have remained steady on my computer for over ten years and it turns out that the people who did the coding for all three of these were either Finnish or Romanian. Perhaps the common sense, integrity,honesty, diligence, intelligence and ability of the old fashioned self sufficient ancestors of these two lands echoes down into the digital age. I think so and I'm writing this article celebrate that fact. East-tec Eraser will be around long after you break your next five computers through neglect.
