Many of our novice or semi-advanced users of our software have asked us about the famous or infamous Gutmann method and whether is it truly required for disks to be overwritten 35x for data to be securely sanitized once and for all? If you have read our blog on how to delete data you already know that US DoD 5220.22-M or any other method that has 3 passes is good enough for data sanitation. However, since our KillDisk does support Gutmann we find that some explanation is necessary, otherwise “why put something there if you are not using it?”.
