GeneralOverwrite file and delete file/folder driver PinmemberBrandon T. H.25-Jul-12 22:33 
Hello all, I'm creating a software called nuclearBoot which, removes the operating system and an option for the user to keep his/her documents or include them in the process as well for erasing sensitive information and data, basically wiping the HDD completely clear, my question is how do you overwrite and delete a file using a driver? And how to tell what the operating system is?
 
Also, I've heard online, that if the hardware in the computer is bad, it will result in a kernel panic, while bootstrapping and activating a HDD clearing software. So any questions on how to make the software still do it's job, even though the hardware is bad or avoid a kernel panic or any other generic fatal error?
Simple Thanks and Regards,
Brandon T. H.
