  • Hiya Vishal!!

    I have a question for you now, like me i remove files in recycle bin and the i empty my recycle bin, but it doesn't remove those files permanently, that's why i'm asking you is there any software what removes those files permanently even after removing them in recycle bin?? And is it possible to get it work like that i don't have to wipe my whole hard disk empty?? All i want is to remove those files permanently what i removed from recycle bin without wiping the whole hard disk??

    Is this possible?? Or is it absolutely necessary to wipe the whole hard disk ot get rid of all the old files what's removed from recycle bin??

    ^^ Once we delete a file from Recycle Bin or Empty the whole Recycle Bin, the content of the file are still kept in HDD sectors. But as soon as you create another file on HDD, the space occupied by the previously deleted file might be assigned to this newly created file and in such condition it would not be possible for any data recovery software to recover that file.

    You can use any file shredding utility to make sure the file has been completely removed from your HDD.

    Yeah, there's quite a number of programs that _permanently_ delete files off your computer, I use Auslogics because it has an option to fill the file with random data so it's a lot harder to recover -- useful for confidential files. The Auslogics File Shredder even has the option to have military grade shredding, but it takes reeaaallyyy long.
