Now that is what I call quality control and product reliability testing.
Brings back old memories. Many years ago, we use to test rescue and safety equipment to destruction, and climbing rope was often on the agenda.Nothing like having a 17 stone 6'4" chap, bouncing about with the rope secured to him, and you are dissecting the cores of the ropes, strand by strand until the final safety point is reached. Not scientific by any means, but it proved to be a worthy talking episode on how a simple looking item can be very robust.
I can vouch for lexar usb jump drives being washable, my son accidentely left his in his school trousers pocket(with his course work on),wife washed them in the washing machine. it was left to dry out for 24hrs and lo & behold it worked. Result one very lucky & happy son
After testing Windows washer 6.0, I have found out the built-in files shredder DOES NOT WORK.
After setting it up to shred files 100 times each, to wash file slack space. And to add Bleach files. IT STILL DOES NOT WORK!
Using iolo.com Search and Recover 2 i was able to recover ALL files including COOKIES, WEB HISTORY, CACHE. Yes all the files windows washer was meant to shred!
"You can make your wash more secure by adding "bleach." The overwrites each file that Window Washer deletes with random characters. You cannot recover bleached files using an undelete or unerase program."
This is simply untrue. The Add Bleach option does not work which means it does not matter if you set the shredder to 10 or 100 shreds per file.
And you guest it, the same problem goes for WW 6.0'S deep cleaning option, as again it need to 'ADD BLEACH' option to work...
I HAVE CONTACTED WEBROOT AND AS YET NOT GOT ANYTHING BACK FROM THEM.
I recommed if you use this product, use another one at least till Webroot short this issue out.
