Review article: 

Best Free Secure Erase Utility

Pros: 

Works with any drive, including IDE, SCSI and RAID, and CD-RWs. Excellent for scheduling, rich features, and has good help and forum support. Gives informative reports, noting any unerased files/cluster tips.

Product type: 

Runs as a stand-alone program on a user's computer

Cons: 

Heavy on system resources, starts slower than FileShredder, the scheduler is of minimal usefulness for resource conscious users, and some forum posters have criticisms of its new interface.
