    I downloaded the image, wrote the iso image to a CD and booted it on my old PC. Easy. The wipe is running now. Why would anyone leave additional USB devices attached to a computer they were wiping? A little common sense (quite lacking these days) makes your life easier. Thanks!

    Thank you so much for what you do. I had a computer with very sensitive financial data on it, and I really didn't know what to do. I only had to press on button (F3). Thank you so much because I know you could make a lot more money in the private section. Now only if you had a DONATE button on your website.

    Only distributed as a CD-ROM, which wastes plastic. Yes I know I can make a bootable USB/PXE from an ISO. Log file doesnt write to USB. Who has a floppy drive anymore? Finishes with full screen advertising for Blancco. Many unanswered questions in bugs/forums. No support for newer hardware No longer maintained. No longer in the spirit of open source, killed off for Blancco's commercial interests.
