Delete File Data

Delete files permanently with SecureClean

Did You Really Delete File Data Forever?

Pressing the delete key does not permanently delete file data. Instead of removing the contents of a file, Windows will only delete file record markers. As a result, the free space of a hard drive is filled with deleted file data that is easily recoverable. Hundreds of people have learned the hard way that deleting a file does not delete file data. A well known example is Colonel Oliver North who had many of his "deleted" e-mails recovered and used against him in the Iran-Contra investigation. To delete file contents permanently, a file must be deleted and overwritten.

Delete File Data with Department of Defense Approved Technology
