    Not sure what part of "Wipe all disks" was unclear to r4545, but it sounds to me like it worked exactly as described. Nice to see an update - my old copy of DBAN 1.0.4 was getting a little long in the tooth.

    Used version 2.2.8 - worked like a charm. As per other reviews: this will nuke any writable media attached to the computer (hard drives, USB attached devices)... If that's NOT what you want, detach any such devices first, or use interactive mode to select devices to be nuked.

    Helped me completely erase the whole hard drive to recover needed space left over from the recovery partition and now I can recover my computer using the DVD's I created. Very simplistic interface , easily hands down the most simplistic hard drive eraser for free out on the market, dont need a degree in Computer Science to figure this one out.
