Do you know how to delete (sensitive or confidential) files permanently from your system? I hope you all know that. Now, let me guess your answer :
- Answer 1 : Delete files normally and then remove them from recycle bin. Or do Shift+delete That’s it!
- Answer 2 : Use any 3rd party tool, which makes use of powerful deletion algorithms (Gutmann etc) to delete files permanently without any scope for recovery.
If your answer is 1, then you are mistaken. Even though you delete files from recycle bin or do Shift+delete, your files won’t be deleted. You (or anyone for that matter) can successfully recover them (in most cases) using Data Recovery softwares. So, if you are relying on the first method to delete sensitive information like credit card, bank account info etc, from your computer then it is high time for you to shift to the second method and use 3rd party tools to delete data permanently.
East-Tec Eraser 2011 is a powerful file deletion software that is exclusively made for this purpose. It can delete files and folders beyond recovery, not only that it will also wipe deleted data so that no one can ever recover the previously deleted data.
On left-side of the interface you can find various functions offered by East-Tec Eraser. At bottom-left, you’ll find a slider. By moving the slider from left to right, you can choose different deletion algorithms. As you move from left to right, the toughness of algorithm will increase and as you choose more tougher algorithm it’d make it difficult to recover. At the same time, as you move towards more tougher algorithms the time taken to delete the data will also increase. Also, a right-click context menu entry “Erase Beyond Recovery” is added to make file/folder deletion simple.
Main features of East-Tec Eraser 2011 :
