    Must-have. Have used with Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, OpenSUSE, etc. Never a problem. I read a few reviews on the www that seemed to think that BB could cause problems but was not able to substantiate. It also includes a secure delete utility which is easier to use than what you get with apt-install secure-delete as it works from the very tidy GUI. You can check deep cleaning and really do a nice job of cleaning up standard old school hard drives. A word of warning: if you are using SSD or USB, the secure delete of individual files is highly problematized as is also the case if you use one of the newer file systems which allow snapshots and/or which automatically back up files.My testing has been primarily on standard old fashioned hard drives using ext2/3/4 and FAT32/ntfs file systems. That said, it probably has utility for SSD/btrfs, etc., if you know the limitations. Oh, and did I say, it is quite fast, and for processes which need some run time, it runs nicely in the background with no discernible impact on available RAM?

    Of any software, one of my most favorite and most often used.

    An indispensable app. For a 5-star rating it needs also options for (1) scheduling to run quietly in the background daily/weekly/monthly, and (2) removal of old kernel packages in Linux.
