It can wipe an entire hard disk, which basically deletes all data on the drive. DriveScrubber is a utility built to help users erase data on storage devices safely. This can be useful before the drive is sold, send in for repair or if the PC is handed out to someone else temporarily or permanently.

It can also be handy if your PC has been infected or damaged by malicious software such as viruses. This ensures that file recovery software running on the computer cannot recover deleted data on that drive.
