    I'm not sure its safe or not. But i can say that its not a secure delete. s. Its assembly level commands, which will make the processor to erase the hard drive.

    It's not about keeping ur post or removing it. If some one wanna try it, they should know how it works and what it does. Many will have more than a partition. thats y they re asking what it does. thats it. Please be patient.

    The answer is
    Well, it affects the partition table and u cannot see any partitions after executing this code. However if u use this code accidentally and wanna see all the partitions. Use partition table doctor to get back ur partition details. And this is not a secure deletion. U can retrieve the deleted files with ease.
