removing info from P.C.

Recommended Posts


Deleting files using the Recycle bin doesnt actually delete them, and they can be easily recovered, if you want permenant and actual deletion you need a little piece of software like Data Nuker, and does exactly what the name implies, basically the files are destroyed as the program overwrites the disc space with a series of 0's and 1's, binary code which is the basis of computer function.

I mention this since if you want to delete sensitive information this is the only way to be sure its gone and cannot be recovered, well by mere mortals anyway :)

Thanking you

                      There is no way that i go down that road,

                                                                                    Pressing the on/off button is the limit of my P.C. care and maintenance.
