what is in the folder ?

$DUMP$, di1000dd, Kernel, license, SHSUCDX, UNERASER, USBASPI, ATAPICD, dos4gw, KILLDISK, manual, uneraser, uneraser.lic, USBCD.

When i click killdisk, the black DOS box comes up with a warning not to run under Windows platforms if u dont have full access to all hardware resources.
click any key to continue, then it dissapears.

I enter killdisk.exe into the cmd line and it says file path not recognised.

ah hah i managed it but it will only let me eliminate the data on my floppy drive and not my HD.

It says the version only supports a 1 pass summat.

"1 pass" probably refers to the number of times the data is over written to destroy it (the more times, the more secure it is)
