This program writes junk to a hard drive, making whatever data that was on it unable to be recovered. The professional version is compliant with US Department of Defense and German government standards.
On the topic of shredding hard drives, WinXP now includes the cipher command.

From command prompt, try running

cipher /W:C:

It wipes all free space on the C: drive, thus making any data previously deleted unrecoverable.
