Disk Test & Wipe
Writes to all free space. Covers old file data. Verifies operation of all disk space.
This program will create a file named ~temp.tmp and start writing to it, and will continue until all of your free space has been overwritten. It tests all those upper locations on your HD that you probably have never written to. When you have a 200GB drive and you have 140GB used, that is not the time to find out you can not write more than 148GB. Test it out with this program. I can be left running while you are doing other things, and when it runs into the end of your drive, it will erase the temp file and release all that clean memory that now has nothing but billions of the character U.
Also it is good for data cleaning if you are going to give the drive away to someone else. After you delete all the files, run this program and it will fill your hard drive with nothing but the letter U.

- Fill Select
- Standard - chr #85 “U” = 01010101
- Random – A repeating string of 250 characters, generated randomly. A-Z, a-z, 0-9. No punctuation allowed. This should stop any accidental code injection due to random data.
- Repeat – User entered string 1-250 characters. A-Z, a-z, 0-9 ( no punctuation except space, underline and Dash. If less than 250 the string is repeated until it has 250.
- Continuous Random – All data written to disk is continuously random (A-Z, a-z, 0-9).
The program runs until it gets any kind of error. It then halts. The only error it should ever report is 112. The error is displayed when encountered. If it is an error other than 112 then you can look it up in the built in “show error codes” button.
Fixed a "halt process" bug.
