How do I know if ByebyeData Eraser can erase files?
I can use Recuva to recover deleted files, even permanently deleted files using Shift+delete, how do I know if your program can erase files after I already known how to recover permanently deleted files.
You can try Recuva to recovery files erased by ByebyeData Eraser. Scan the erased area first and then check if there’re traces left behind.
As for the shift+delete parts, although the Windows message shows it’s permanently deleted files when holding down the Delete button and the Shift button, it’s actually not, this shortcut is only to delete files’ heading directly so files won’t go to the recycle bin. Thus, data recovery software like Recuva can easily get back.
Now, you must have seen the result from Recuva, No, can’t find any remanences, files are completely overwritten, recovery data here is an impossible mission. Recuva is just a freeware, will some commercial and more professional programs make this impossible operation possible? No, it’s not a problem of free software or paid programs, the key is that: Overwritten data cannot be recovered. And that’s what ByebyeData Eraser does, overwrite stuff.
And please Note that, the demo edition of Pro and Admin Edition cannot perform any operations, it just displays every function that the according edition has; What’s more, Erase files and folders function is a built-in function for the Free Edition, so if you want to check Eraser for files, just download the Free Edition, it won’t disappoint you.
