About Disk Verifier
Disk Verifier is an add-on for Parted Magic's Secure Erase GUI that is used to aid compliance with NIST 800-88 disk erase verification. Disk Verifier has been downloaded over 1,500 times as of August 2022.
Combined with the Secure Erase feature from Parted Magic (affiliate link - I earn commission for purchases made through this link), this provides an easy and convenient way to securely erase and verify your drives. Disk Verifier also comes in the form of a live bootable disk that can verify any disks attached to the system, as you specify them.
Please note that to help with NIST 800-88 compliance, you have to verify 100% of the disk at the moment, which is the default. As always for this kind of thing, you should read the NIST 800-88 guidelines to make sure you understand what you need to do to comply.
Note that the personal and business editions are identical, and can be used by anyone, except that you get priority email support if you purchase the business edition, whereas otherwise you have to use the support forum. Both editions are valid for an unlimited number of disks.

We are elated with the product, we have waited for such since we began using PartedMagic for secure erase in October of 2013. You did an excellent job on the module.
