Get Everlasting A+ Grade Data Deletion On Your Windows Computer!

Prologue

If the question of “when I delete data on my Windows computer, is it permanently deleted?” has popped into your mind anytime, then you should know that the concern is genuine. There is an abundant amount of software on the market that promises to make your data deletion process secure and permanent. But they fail to deliver on their promises and their software is not capable enough to perform the task. In that case, you might fear the unknown, i.e what would happen if your data falls into the wrong hands.?

What happens when you press the ‘delete’ button?

On a Windows PC, when you press the ‘delete’ button, the item is moved to the recycle bin. Then the user normally proceeds to delete the item from the bin, upon which Windows, regardless of the version(Windows XP, Windows 7, or 8, or Windows 10) prompts the user that the item will be deleted forever. Except, the truth is that the item is not deleted forever. The Windows OS just removes the link or pathway to that data sector. New files can be overwritten in the same sector.

The security concerns

Multiple security concerns might arise due to this deletion mechanism like:

  • Unwanted retrieval: if you have deleted something, it means you no longer need them or they are sensitive and must not be visible to everyone. You might back some private photos and documents on your flash drive or external hard disk, and delete the same on the PC. However, if someone can retrieve those from the PC, they can blackmail you for anything.
  • Information leakage: If your computer has important work-related documents, you know what kind of trouble you might get into if your passwords and other sensitive information gets leaked even after deletion because someone with a malicious intent retrieved that data and spilled it everywhere!
