This can NOT erase *all* data from an ATA drive -- nor can any similar "erase software". Here are a few terms with which to familiarize yourself:
Device Control Overlay
Host Protected Area
^ Not a complete list.
Use a RAM drive for cache. Problem solved.
The only way to ensure data destruction on an ATA drive is to DESTROY the drive itself.
The aim of this extension is simply to wipe FF cache files, not to wipe whole HD (like other erase tools do). So I don't care if it is not able to access "Host Protected Area" or "Device Control Overlay" areas because FF cache is not stored there.
A different story is for G-list sectors. It's possible that during FF usage some sectors becomes unreadable and are added to G-list. Ok, these sectors cannot be wiped by this extension. On the other hand these sectors are damaged and unreadable, so I assume it is quit difficult to retrive original information.
Anyway I agree with you: it is not possible to destroy infos via software with 100% of certainty.
