BB's simple overwrite is not explained anywhere, why? Why no standardised erasing patterns, to ensure truer Data Sanitization:
Can anyone explain what happens why I enable he overwrite function with BB, how does it ensure the data cannot be recovered if I overwrite a file on a hard disk or usb stick?
I do think BB is a great solution for Linux, but how can I trust a functin that just says overwrite with no explanation of what is meant by this term, from a technical stance.
Under BB's preferences options why not enable users to choose standard secure erasing patterns like:
How to erase data permanently from the hard drive?
I find it worrying that BB does not what it means by the term overwriting, no explanation is given of the overwriting pattern used, why?
