Please note that:

  • Once the erasing process gets started, all the data on the selected hard drive/device will be permanently erased. So, please back up your useful data to another hard drive before you erase it.
  • This mode can’t erase the hard drive where Windows OS is installed because it will destroy the entire Mac operating system. If you want to erase data on the system hard drive, you can try another modes - “Erase Files” and “Erase Free Space”.
  • This mode will erase all the data on your hard drive or device. Then your computer, hard drive or external device is able to be reused, recycled, ore resold. It will not affect the service life of your hard drive or device.
  • When you try to open the erased hard drive/device, it may ask you to format the hard drive/device to build new file system. Just format it.

Mode 3: Erase free disk space

Deleted or formatted data is not lost forever, it is stored on the free disk space and can be recovered by data recovery software. This mode can help you completely erase the free disk space to permanently erase the already deleted/formatted or lost data on the hard drive/device. It will not affect the existing data on your hard drive/device.
