Permanently delete a file (no trace, even file name)

If we delete a file using “Shift+Delete” key, the file contents and file name & directory structure can be recovered using recovery software like Recuva, Tuneup undelete etc.

What if we want to delete a confidential file such that the cannot be recovered at all? We use permanent file shredders such as Tune-up shredder, remo etc.. we can’t recover the file contents.
Even then, the file name can be found out. So, The solution to clean the trace??

Use a software called Eraser.

  • Not only, it removes the contents of file, it also clears the file name from file system.
  • Also, you can schedule the deletion at specific time or next restart.
  • If you have accidentally deleted a file using “Shift+Delete”, you can erase the complete free space in a drive.
  • So, all the deleted file names will be erased. No one find a trace. This feature does not exist in any other software.
