16 July 2009

Ensures nothing you delete from your iPhone can be recovered.

What is iErase for Mac

iErase... iconWant to make sure a deleted confidential email or embarrassing photo is purged forever from your iPhone, but don't want to go through the inconvenience of wiping the entire device? Simply deleting a file doesn't guarantee it's gone for good. Protect your deleted data from being recovered by hacking tools and prying eyes, or in the event your iPhone is stolen.

iErase is a simple utility for zeroing out the free space on your iPhone without performing a full reset of your content and settings. The tool does not delete any live files, but uses the same method that Mac OS X uses to zero free space: it creates a large temporary file, which writes zeroes over the free space where deleted files can still reside. On the iPhone, this occurs within the application's sandbox, but because all applications share the same free space, the entire iPhone user partition is cleansed, forever purging deleted photos, email, voicemail, and other deleted files - without having to reset all your content and settings.

This helpful utility can be run periodically to effortlessly clear out old data and ensure it is beyond recovery. Because it doesn't erase your content or settings, you won't spend extra time restoring everything back onto your device, and the operation itself can take up less time than a full erase because it only operates on free space.

To use, set your "Auto-Lock" setting to "Never" and let it run while connected to a power source. Actual erase time varies depending on the amount of free space on the device. If you receive a phone call while iErase is running, it will pause and simply continue when you're finished.
