Data Shredder and Data Recovery Utilities

By: Sam Roberts

Critical Information every PC user must know! Did you know that files you have previously deleted are not actually removed from your PC, and can easily be seen, retrieved and viewed?. Windows does not remove deleted files, they remain and kept in a hidden area on your hard drive and can be easily recovered and retrieved exposing your privacy and security.

Everything you have deleted in the past including any file, movie, clip, document, financial information, private information, contact information, internet history, pictures and images, programs, e-mails, cookies, spyware/adware and anything else you have previously deleted, still remain on your hard drive.



Windows marks files for deletion and removes them from the file system database when you delete them. This doesn't mean they are immediately gone. In fact, all that initially happens when you delete a file is Windows makes note that the space occupied by the file is listed as available space for storing new information. Until something new is written to the part of the drive where that old file was stored, your file is still there. Depending on how many sectors that file occupies, pieces of the file could exist on your drive for a very long time. If you very recently deleted the file, there's an excellent chance you will recover it, especially if you haven't downloaded a bunch of new files or created several gigabytes of data. The trick is finding the right tool to get them back.
