Reader Questions Deleting

I have posted a few articles on “shredding” the files on your hard drive to truly delete them, (and making it safe to donate/dispose of your computer) as well as articles on how to recover accidentally deleted files.

Just last week I posted How to REALLY delete – or recover – a file. And How to recover your lost files has proven rather popular over time too. (Just to name a couple.)

Last night I received a question posted as a comment on last week’s article from a reader that basically asked, “is it REALLY possible for people to see files that I’ve deleted?

A: Yes. It’s true. I didn’t make it up. Download Recuva and try it for yourself. Also, I commend you for using your intelligence to question what you see on the Internet. Just because someone has posted something does not make it true. Even if they have included a graph. Or a picture (see, Photoshopping).

I have a leprechaun in my pocket.

See?

Folks, Going to cut it short as I’m still in “vacation mode”. Hope you all are getting the chance to enjoy some of the nice summer weather. Please click the links for the prior article if you need a file shredder.
