    a few yrs ago I had a program that was on a floppy that wiped ur hard drive. When u put it in--it loaded to a A\\ prompt and u typed debug. below it was the # 100 and u typed in a code. then below it was #103 and again u typed in a code, then # 106 etc. at the end u hit enter and it said program terminated normally . best thing I ever had but Ive lost the code and the floppy and nothing I have now even has a floppy. does ANYONE know what this program was ?? can anyone send it and the code to me or know where I could get it 4 free ?? I aslo had a floppy called hd nuke that made 7 passes but have lost it also !! (moved) can ANYONE help ??

    thanks so much i've heard of this program and they say it's great !! But -- I've got a few questions 4 u. I've got it downloaded to my desktop but want to make a cd of it. Should I exact the files 1st ?? How do I use it ? Do I change the boot order to cd-rom then restart ?? Will it be self explanatory as to using it ?? I'm alot better on hardware than on software, so my questions may seem stupid, and I'm sorry but please bear with me !!

    The program was called Debug. You were hand coding in machine instructions to wipe the drive.
    You could probably find it with a little time on google, but Dban or ActiveKill disk are much easier to use

    The file is in a zip archive,so you will need to extract it first.
    You can burn the iso to a CD with the listed free software or
    use an iso burning program.
    Once the cd is burned,you can set your bios to boot to cd
    and bott it to run the program.
