File Shredder : Leaves No Trace Of Deleted Files On Computer Hard Disk

Deleting a file from a computer’s hard disk does not mean that the file is gone for forever. When we delete a file from a hard drive on a windows based pc then only the references and access paths to that file are deleted while the file still resides in the computer’s hard disk with deleted references and access paths. The file can be recovered easily by using various file recovery softwares for Microsoft windows, you can see how to recover deleted files. Its always a good idea that you delete your private data and files from a computer’s hard disk permanently leaving behind no trace of it that may help to recover it back.
