What is AweEraser for Mac

AweEraser is a secure Mac data eraser. It can securely and permanently erase data from hard drive/storage media, permanently delete Mac files, wipe hard drive, and erase already deleted data under Mac OS. It also offers tools to help you batch remove applications on your Mac and clean up browsers histories, caches, privacy, etc.

We know that the deleted or formatted data can be recovered by data recovery software. So, if you are going to sell, donate or giveaway your Mac, USB, digital camera, you should make sure your private data has been permanently erased rather than just deleting the files, emptying trash bin or formatting the device. AweEraser for Mac offers government & military level data erasure standards to ensure permanently destroying the targeted data without affecting the operating life of your computer or device. The certified data erasure methods include HMG Infosec Standard 5, German FOFIS, DOD 5220.22-M, U.S. Army AR380-19, Peter Gutmann's algorithm, etc.

This Mac data eraser is pretty simple to use. It offers flexible and reliable data erasures. Option 1: shred files/folders. Option 2: wipe entire hard drive/device to permanently erase all data from the hard drive and device. Option 3: erase free disk space to permanently erase already deleted/formatted data. AweEraser for Mac also offers uninstaller and internet cleaner. The uninstaller can help you uninstall applications in batches and delete all related files including app junk, registry files, caches, etc. AweEraser for Mac is 100% safe. It ensures permanently erasing targeted data on your hard drive, USB flash drive, digital camera, memory card, RAID, server, and other storage media. It will not cause any physical damage to your device and only erase the data you want to erase.

It is very interesting to be able to completely destroy confidential documents. For me, it's medical documents. I want medical secrecy to be respected

BE VERY CAREFUL !! Even Apple Computer itself says very adamantly : NEVER use this kind of "eraser" on a PC equipped with a SSD ( solid state drive ) OR you will damage it very prematurely ! And, as you know, most pc are now equipped with SSD ...

I purchased this while it was on sale. :-) So far I used it to clean the free space on my old SanDisk USB drive freespace. It worked well... I like the ability to change the data erasure standards, which to my knowledge isn't something that I can do with Apples built in Disk Utility. For the 11.95 I paid I'm not complaining. Runs well and does what it says.

So far have only used to clear free space on 2 of my discs (3more to go) so don't feel my review is going to be very helpful. I don't have a need to erase any disc yet but glad to have this in my arsenal for when I do. Have an old MacBook that I might want to sell. Can I purchase a licence to use on more than one machine?

I am going to sell my MacBook. Try some data erases, like Stellar disk wipe, super eraser. AweEraser is much easier to use and offers more tools. Worth to try.

I was looking for a tool to erase my data from my old MacBook before I sell it. This tool is so for the best one for me. It permanently erase my data and will not destroy the system, only erase my private data. Moreover, the uninstaller is amazing. But I want to know if I can transfer the license code to my new iMac?
