Ascomp has graciously offered our DCT readers a chance to win one of five licenses for their Secure Eraser program. These licenses are currently valued at $20.00 (US) each. There is also a basic free version which can be used for personal and private use. I do not know its limitations.

“Secure Eraser uses the most renowned method of data disposal and overwrites sensitive information in such a sure way that it can never be retrieved – even with specialized software. Our multiple award-winning solutions for definitively destroying data also eliminate any cross-references that could leave traces of deleted files in the allocation table of your hard drive.” ~ Ascomp

This contest has ended but you can still read all about it at this Secure Eraser page. This is a great way to secure your drives for transfer or if you plan to sell them or discard them.

Coming Soon!

Steganos Safe 20


Steganos has kindly offered our DCT readers a chance to win a free copy of their Safe 20 encryption software. We have five licenses for this giveaway contest, each valued at $34.99 (US) and good for five PCs.

“Confidential documents, business records and TAN lists all belong in a safe place. Steganos Safe 20 is a digital vault that protects everything you don’t want anyone else to see.” ~ Steganos

This giveaway contest is scheduled to begin on August 12 and will end at midnight on August 22, 2019. Another layer of security for your computer– don’t miss out on this one!!

Engelmann Photo Blowup





Engelmann is a new friend who has generously offered our readers a chance to win one of five licenses for their remarkable Photo Blowup software. At the time of writing, each license is currently selling at a 30% discounted price of $33.33 (US). There is also a free trial version that you can use to try before you buy.

“Photo BlowUp reconstructs the details of your images and allows a magnification of up to 700%! Even if you have high-resolution pictures and want to print poster photos on canvas or XXL posters, you quickly reach the limits of your pictures and the prints look pixel [sic] or unclean. And that’s exactly why we developed Photo BlowUp: Change the image size and get brilliant and sharp images!” ~ Engelmann

This giveaway contest is scheduled to begin on August 26 and will run through September 5, 2019.

iMyFone Passper For RAR

iMyFone has kindly offered our DCT readers a chance to win one of five licenses for their Passper for RAR program. At the time of writing these are one-year licenses each valued at $29.95.  There is also a free trial version you can try out to see if it suits your needs.

“Simply recover forgotten passwords for RAR archives created by RAR, WinRAR, and other compressed software regardless of the password complexity.” ~ iMyFone

This giveaway contest is scheduled to begin on September 9 and will run through September 19, 2019.
