The Free Edition is real freeware without any obligation to buy. It is intended for temporary and free use cases. For more frequent or professional use, we recommend you to use one of the higher editions, as they offer higher speed, broader hardware support and further options for regular and professional usage.
The universal download package contains HDShredder as a Windows application (HDShredder/W) and as a self-booting application (HDShredder/S) You can easily create a bootable HDShredder/S floppy disk or CD/DVD on Windows with only few mouse clicks. A floppy image, ISO image, and manual (PDF) are also enclosed.
The download package for Windows contains the same components as the universal package (see above), but in contrast, it is a self-extracting archive (.exe), which can only be opened in Windows.
We recommend all Windows users to use the download package for Windows.
For more frequent or professional use, we recommend you to use one of the higher editions of HDShredder. They offer you extended special options for many areas of use.
