Clean Deleted files from hard drive
How to clean deleted files off hard drive? I have passwords stored in a txt file, now i want to get rid of my laptop, so I deleted my personal stuff, but how can I make sure they cannot be recovered by some data restore program? How to permanently delete files I never want? I'm using Windows 7 64 bit Pro Edition.
Windows does not provide us with secure delete methods, the function "permanently delete" they use will not stop data recovery software tracing old data. We have to overwrite the deleted sector and wipe out all the leftovers to make data secure. Now we can download ByebyeData Eraser and we can clean deleted files from hard drives, you have two options.
