Tool for the UBCD: MHDD

#1 Post by linuxn00b » Mon Jul 11, 2005 6:30 am

Hi,
I just found a new freeware tool that looks very useful. I think it would be a great idea to add it, it is called MHDD. The Website is avaible at http://mhddsoftware.com/
It seems to be able to activate the hard disk feature "Security erase unit" for VERY fast disk erasing and also has other nice features (check the website for more). (AFAIK no other tool on the UBCD has all of the features of this tool - if you know one that is on the UBCD and can activate the "security erase unit" function, plz tell me!)

I hope that "freeware" means it can be added, it seems not to be open source.

And please add it as a image, not as a part of this nasty freedos-thingy, if possible.

Thanks in advance

Thanks, missed it. I searched the menus dir with "file contains", but probably I mistyped it. However, it is extremly outdated (v4.2 on the CD, v4.5 is avaible) - please update with next release.

Thanks in advance

PS: Is there any planned relase date for the next version?
