tarekma7O&O SafeErase 16: Stop identity theft with secure data deletion!
[Image: Kd8KtSu.gif]

Using internationally recognized methods, O&O SafeErase deletes sensitive data so securely that a reconstruction, even with special software, is no longer possible. O&O SafeErase has an inbuilt analysis function which searches for files that were not deleted securely and warns the user of the dangers associated with this data. With just a few clicks, the computer can be cleaned to such an extent that unauthorized persons have no chance to dig out old files and misuse them. SSDs also are automatically detected and deletions made via the TRIM command, while at the same time making sure that resources are not wasted. The advanced report system and managing of lists for oft-used deletion procedures enhances the user-friendliness of O&O SafeErase further.
O&O SafeErase lists per browser all the stored information – such as cookies, form data and Internet histories – which can be safely deleted either individually or combined. Once deleted, no one can trace the Internet activity, and online accounts are protected from unauthorized access.

All files, settings, applications and operating system are deleted so that a recovery is impossible. It is possible to delete the entire computer including the system partition without boot media. After restarting the system the deletion process begins automatically. Should an SSD not support TRIM, the data is simply overwritten with zeros to avoid wear effects.

Writing over data with zeros means less sensitive data can be deleted at great speed. In addition, O&O SafeErase offers a further five methods of deletion, each one differing in the amount of procedures and the type of overwriting employed. Along with standard deletion procedures used by the U.S. Departments of Defense (DoD) and the German Bundesamts für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI), the Gutmann Methods are also available, matching the highest security requirements and writing over data 35 times. Deletions are hugely speeded up here as the program takes advantage of the entire performance resources of the computer.

Why you need O&O SafeErase 16?

Your personal photos and confidential documents can easily fall into the wrong hands when you sell, give away or dispose of your old PC or hard drives. Identity theft is now a widespread security threat. This is because clicking on “Delete” does not mean your files are permanently deleted. Even formatting the hard disk is not enough to permanently delete data. O&O SafeErase permanently deletes your confidential files using recognized methods so that a recovery is never possible, not even when using the best file recovery software.

There is a good chance your personal photos or business data will easily fall into the wrong hands whenever you want to sell, give away or dispose of your old computer. This is because clicking on “Delete” doesn’t automatically mean your data is irrevocably destroyed. Even formatting the hard disk is not enough to completely destroy your data. O&O SafeErase allows you to permanently delete your data using recognized methods so that a recovery is never possible, not even when using specialized software.

New and enhanced functions:

Thanks to extensive optimization of the entire program, O&O SafeErase now starts considerably faster than any previous version. Information about drives is accessed as soon as the system starts and this accelerates booting significantly. 

In addition to many minor enhancements, O&O SafeErase includes an analytical tool that scans your computer for temporary and unsafely deleted files. With just a few clicks, you can clean your computer so that unauthorized parties never have a chance to spy out old files for possible misuse. SSDs can also be detected, and deletions made on them will be done sparing resources.

ClusterView visualizes the progress of deletion:

Many O&O SafeErase users have often asked about what and where deletion is taking place on the hard disk or SSD. That’s why the new version includes integrated familiar ClusterView feature from O&O Defrag into version 16 so that it’s now possible to “see“ when and where selected files are being deleted.

Internet security:

When surfing the Internet, your browser usually stores Internet files unnoticed on your hard drive. These files can provide information about websites you’ve visited or the passwords you’ve entered. It makes no difference whether it involves cookies, data entered on forms, or browsing history – O&O SafeErase lists all the information saved for each browser you use, and you can then delete them individually or together. Once deleted, nobody will be able to detect your Internet traces and your online accounts are protected from data thieves or hackers. Version 16 supports Microsoft Edge, the successor to Internet Explorer, as well as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox.

Safe erase your entire computer

Deleting the entire computer allows you to permanently delete all confidential files before you dispose of, sell, or give your computer away. All files, settings, applications and the operating system itself are deleted so that a file recovery is impossible. You can be sure that nobody will ever restore your confidential information and misuse it, protecting yourself against identity theft. With O&O SafeErase you can even delete your entire computer without a start medium (e.g. a Boot CD).

Six deletion methods for maximum security

O&O SafeErase allows you to choose from among six different deletion methods. The methods of deletion differ in the number of runs and the type of overwriting process. These methods ensure maximum security, whatever your requirements. In addition to standardized deletion methods of the U. S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) you can also select a complex mathematical method (the Gutmann method), which complies with the highest security levels. In this scientifically approved method of data deletion, corresponding areas of the hard disk are overwritten 35 times using precisely defined rules along with fixed and random values. In this way, O&O SafeErase exceeds even the requirements of the DoD and the BSI. Quick deletion can also be made by just overwriting data with zeros.


As of version 12.3, O&O SafeErase includes the feature SolidErase, which was developed especially for the deletion of SSDs. SolidErase uses resources sparingly and thoroughly so that the data is not recoverable and the SSD is exposed to the least possible strain.

Erasing SSDs with SolidErase:
The SolidErase feature was designed especially for deleting SSDs. SolidErase does its job thoroughly while still going easy on resources, so that afterwards, deleted data can never be recovered and the SSD itself was under only a minimum of wear.

Erasing SSDs without SolidErase: 

By deactivating the resource-saving SolidErase, SSDs are erased just as intensively as normal hard drives.

Deleting the entire computer with O&O TotalErase: 

All files, settings, programs, and the operating system itself can be deleted in a way that makes any restoration impossible. Deletion of the entire computer including operating systems is possible without a bootable medium. 

Page-specific settings can be deleted (Edge): 

Permissions and settings can be configured for every individual website. Exceptions created as “DoNotTrack“ along with the setting allowing fullpage
display will be deleted.

Page-specific settings can be deleted (Firefox): 

Permissions and settings can be configured for every website, for example, whether passwords are allowed to be saved or pop-ups displayed. O&O
SafeErase can be used for deleting these files.


Displays temporary files and those files that were not securely deleted. With just a few clicks, O&O SafeErase can clean up a computer so effectively that there’s no chance for such files to be detected and misused.

Instant Erase: 

Whenever data is deleted by right-clicking, a miniature dialog is displayed and secure deletion begins immediately.


O&O SafeErase is compatible with Windows 10 and explicitly takes into consideration all the requirements of Windows 7 and Windows 8. The Server Edition can be used on all Windows Servers starting from 2008.

Scripting integration: 

O&O SafeErase can integrate individual scripts for running deletions automatically over command lines.

Browser security: 

O&O SafeErase lists per browser all the stored information - such as cookies, form data and Internet histories – which can be permanently deleted either individually or combined. Once deleted, there are no traces of Internet activity, and online accounts are protected from unauthorized access. 

Detailed reports:

O&O SafeErase provides detailed reports that indicate the files that were permanently destroyed and the method that was used for doing so. The reports can be made anonymous by, for example, hiding file names to protect privacy.
