    Is there an data Eraser app that will actually write over deleted data on the SD card? If so is there a need for multiple passes to completely destroy data in the free space of the card like you have to do on a Hard Drive?

    Are you looking to erase the entire sdcard or just remove portions?

    I am looking to erase a file and/or all the free space on the SD card. The second option is for making sure the data in the free area of the card is gone.

    Hook you phone up to your computer. It will come up as an external drive. Use any of the data erase programs. BC Wipe wporks well. Wipe files and free space on the sd card
