Deleting Data Files


What about when you want to delete data files on your hard drive. For some of you, it may be that you just want to clean up the hard-drive to remove space, or prying eyes from family members or work associates. But for others, its about preventing others from accessing previously held data - such as when you are selling your computer.

As we know, you can never get rid of the files completely but certain software will make it unacessible by anyone other than those with deep forensic software. This effectively destroys access to the original data, rather than deleting it. The latest method of doing this is by overwriting the existing data 50 or 60 times with specially encoded data patterns so that such as unintelligable layer remains that it is impossible to reconstruct.
