Benefits & Advantages

Prevent costly data leakage and avoid risking sensitive data falling into the wrong hands

BCWipe is designed to surgically remove all traces of unwanted files beyond recovery. BCWipe will wipe selected files, folders and Data Remanence, Wipe Free Space, Wipe File Slack space, Wipe Temporary Files, wipe system-specific data and more.


Sophisticated wiping for anyone’s peace of mind

BCWipe is the most powerful and trusted data wiping utility, engineered for a wide range of users: from large organizations handling national security to personal users at home. The power of BCWipe can be used to securely erase classified documents or your own private files.


Flexible wiping options

To comply with various security mandates, BCWipe comes built with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD 5220.22-M) and U.S. Department of Energy (DoE M 205.1-2) standards, as well as other popular wiping standards. You can also create your own customized wiping scheme to permanently wipe data.


Military-grade technology at your fingertips

For over 10 years, BCWipe has been trusted as the de-facto standard for the U.S. Department of Defense, all of the top 10 U.S. Defense Contractors and many National Laboratories. Despite its industrial strength, BCWipe is still user-friendly – easy to install and easy to use.


Clean up data remanence and free space in less time

By securely erasing sensitive data automatically on the fly, BCWipe's Transparent Wiping can eliminate time-consuming processes such as Wipe Free Space.


Available on all major platforms: Windows, Mac OS and Linux


New Features & Added Benefits in v.6

Faster Wipe Free Space operation with new Reserved Space Manager

Wipe Free Space can be a time-consuming process. Modern large disks with terabytes of free space could take several days to complete. BCWipe's new Reserved Space Manager saves time by preserving the wiped space in a clean state. For more detailed information, see Reserved Space article in Help File.


Wipe directory slack space on NTFS drives

The NTFS directory node is a special file that contains names of files and subdirectories. Like any other file, the directory node/entry has slack space which may still contain names of deleted files, as well as other deleted data.


Wipe temporary data stored in NTFS log file

NTFS is a journaling file system that uses the NTFS Log ($LogFile) to record usage history of the file system.


Avoid Low Disk Space situation

BCWipe is now smart enough to overwrite free space without causing a Low Disk Space condition.


MFT wiping is faster and more convenient than ever

When wiping free space and unused MFT records, BCWipe v.6 wipes MFT several times faster than before. When wiping a file, BCWipe v.6 wipes the corresponding MFT record.


New wiping standards added

BCWipe now includes British HMG IS5 (Baseline, Enhanced), Canadian RCMP TSSIT OPS-II, NAVSO-P5239-26, Russian GOST R 50739-95, US Army AR380-19.


Support for Windows 8

When upgrading to Windows 8, Jetico users can continue to rely on the world’s most powerful and trusted utility to wipe sensitive data.


Wipe selected files and free space on Windows 8 Storage Spaces

In addition to the ability to securely erase files, BCWipe offers a convenient solution to Wipe Free Space on Storage Spaces. Once the command is launched, BCWipe reads the disk configuration and analyzes Windows in order to exclude from the wiping process all unallocated space (or the unused portion of free space). BCWipe now only needs to run on the allocated free space, which may contain sensitive information.
