Paragon Disk Wiper Professional irreversibly destroys all on-disk information, providing maximum level of security. It allows you to wipe all data on the HDD with government and military security standards and academic algorithms.
You can choose 10 different data erasure algorithms. With Paragon Disk Wiper Professional you can free up storage space and make sure the data’s been deleted once and for all.
After some research on the issue, the Paragon company has improved the disk wiping technology and can now guarantee irreversible secure data destruction on SSD storage devices without shortening the SSD’s service life.
Simply erasing or reformatting your HDD may not be enough to prevent financial records, passwords and other confidential documents from falling into the wrong hands. Make sure nobody recovers your deleted information with Paragon Disk Wiper.
Paragon Disk Wiper Professional allows you to:
- Completely erase a whole hard disk, a separate partition or just clean free space.
- Irreversibly destroy all on-disk data easily and quickly, so it cannot be recovered with any present-day technology.
- Quickly and efficiently sanitize the hard disks in order to protect valuable business information and also because there is, in the most countries, a legal obligation to do so.
Wiping SSD (Solid State Drive)
The internal architecture of an SSD is very different from that of a hard disk, and the way SSDs store data is very different as well. This means that existing disk sanitization techniques originally used for HDDs won’t work on SSDs. Reliable SSD sanitization requires built-in, verifiable sanitize operations. Moreover, standard wiping processes significantly reduce the lifespan of SSDs.
The new Paragon Wiping Media Builder 3.0 makes it extremely easy and flexible to create a bootable media on a CD, DVD disc, or flash memory, which can later be used to boot and irreversibly destroy the on-disk data. Moreover, you can use it to save data from partitions of your hard disk directly to compact discs or burn ISO images. The utility supports various formats of laser discs: CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R, DVD+R double layer, and Blu-ray, and it can handle multi-session burning.

- Prepares Linux or WinPE-based bootable environment on a USB thumb drive or in an ISO
- Doesn’t obligatory require Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) or Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) on Windows 7 and later platforms
- Can build WinPE-based media on Windows XP, Vista, if there’s WAIK installed in the system
- Allows injecting additional drivers for storage devices, network controllers, USB controllers, or system during setup
- Enables to set up a network connection with a pre-mounted network share during setup
- Prepares hybrid (both, uEFI and BIOS compatible) 64-bit recovery environment on flash or in an ISO image
