BitRaser Review - Wipe PC Conveniently
Is there any need for a utility to wipe computer? Developer stellarinfo sure hopes so, as the company has released an update to its multi-function app, BitRaser. Unlike the questionable peddlers of other Computer Wipe software, stellarinfo is an established company that produces quality software. Apps like Wipe Mac, which enables you to clean up Mac super quick and easy, have been used extensively at the GiveUMore offices for years. In fact, stellarinfo apps overall are lightweight, run quickly, and feature great user friendly designs.
Previous versions of BitRaser have received generally positive ratings from major publications, and our good experience with other stellarinfo software led us to give it shot, so we contacted the developer and had them send us a copy, which we’ve been testing for the past few weeks.
It’s clear that BitRaser works as advertised. In addition, a nice dashboard view, using it is very straightforward. It combines many different functions into a single app, with a focus on erasing files, folders, Application traces, system traces, internet activities as well as volumes from Windows based systems without leaving any possibility for recovery.
The problem, however, is that some features the app offers can be found elsewhere, often for free, but you should takes some advanced computer know-how. Therefore, at a launch price of $39.99 for a single PC, you’ll want to make your purchase decision based on the convenience that BitRaser can provide, not necessarily its capabilities.
That makes the decision to pay or not boil down to the value of your time and your computer know-how. You’ll spend a good bit of time launching various free apps and OS system utilities to manually perform each operation that BitRaser offers. Think about that time, and possible confusion, versus a single click in BitRaser. Your feelings on that comparison will tell you if it is worth it for you.
