Open Source Data Removal

12. BleachBit Replaces Easy System Cleaner

BleachBit erases the traces of your actions on your computer and speeds up performance by cleaning up your cache, deleting your history, and more. It can also "shred" files or folders so they can't be recovered from your hard drive. Operating System: Windows, Linux.

13. Eraser Replaces BCWipe Enterprise

Even though you've deleted a file, someone may be able to recover it from your hard drive using forensics tools. However, Eraser writes over your old files, completely eliminating all traces of sensitive or personal files. Operating System: Windows

14. Wipe Replaces BCWipe Enterprise

Like Eraser, Wipe overwrites deleted files in order to make them impossible to restore. Operating System: Linux.

15. Darik's Boot and Nuke Replaces Kill Disk, BCWipe Total WipeOut

Sometimes you need to erase an entire hard drive—if you are recycling or donating an old system, for example. DBAN does the job for you quickly and easily. Operating System: OS Independent.

Open Source Encryption

16. AxCrypt Replaces McAfee Anti-Theft, CryptoForge

The self-proclaimed "leading open source file encryption software for Windows," AxCrypt makes it easy to protect files and folders in Windows. From Window Explorer, you just right-click to encrypt, and double-click to decrypt data. Operating System: Windows.

17. Gnu Privacy Guard Replaces Cypherus.

Also known as "GPG," this Gnu app for encrypting e-mail and other communication is based on the OpenPGP standard—just like the PGP product. On the down side, this is a command-line project, so it's not particularly easy to use. Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS X.

18. Mac GNU Privacy Guard Replaces Cypherus

This version of GPG was designed specifically for the Mac. Again, like the standard version, it's not particularly user-friendly, but it does get the job done. Operating System: OS X.

19. gpg4win Replaces Cypherus

And, as you probably guessed, this is a version of GPG for Windows. Unlike the other two versions of GPG listed here, this one includes extensive documentation, including a novice guide for beginners. Operating System: Windows.

20. PeaZip Replaces WinZip

Like WinZip, PeaZip's primary purpose is compressing files for archiving or transmission, but also like WinZip, it offers built-in encryption capabilities as well. PeaZip's interface isn't quite as easy to use as WinZip's, but it can create and read more file types. Operating System: Windows, Linux.

21. Crypt Replaces McAfee Anti-Theft, CryptoForge

This file and folder encryption app was designed for maximum speed. Thanks to its small size, it works incredibly quickly—and you don't even have to install anything on your system in order to use it. Operating System: Windows.

22. NeoCrypt Replaces McAfee Anti-Theft, CryptoForge

Another file and folder encryption utility, NeoCrypt integrates with Windows Explorer much like AxCrypt. It's easy to use and supports ten different encryption algorithms. Operating System: Windows.

23. TrueCrypt Replaces PGP Whole Disk Encryption

Like the PGP product, TrueCrypt can protect your entire hard drive or thumb drive. Incredibly popular, it's been downloaded more than 14 million times. Operating System: Windows.
