Files, removed by standard Windows functions are accessible to any person who has access to your computer. In many companies, all papers are usually destroyed with a shredder machine, which crushes a sheet of paper and mixes the received strips.

Deleted data can be recovered

For each personal computer user there comes such a moment when he starts to put things in order on the storage device. And it is necessary to delete or move hundreds and thousand of files and folders, uninstall or remove unnecessary programs. Having spent for this process a lot of time, you look at result with pleasure. All necessary information remains, all unnecessary one is destroyed for ever. This is so, but not absolutely! Practically the deleted files can be restored with special undelete software.

When a file is being deleted with the Windows Explorer or any other files commander, (even bypassing the Recycle Bin) it is physically left on the disk. It is just marked as deleted, and the disk space which was occupied earlier, is marked as free, i.e. ready for new records. But, actually file data remain in the same place where it was. Restoration programs (undelete) are based on this file removal mechanism, they can recover file system record about file existence. There are either positive or negative sides of it. Data restoration from the broken hard drive brings pleasure when this information comes back to you. But when the file which you have removed, gets into foreign hands it is a big problem.

Recycle Bin – the best friend of the spy

To remove data completely it is not enough to remove it through the Windows Explorer to the Recycle Bin (Basket) or to the Recycle Bin and after then empty it. Besides, even after hard disk formatting, it is possible to restore data partially or completely. Therefore your old hard drive or other storage device which you have sold or gave to another person, can quite become object of interest for a certain circle of people. Information restoration can cost expensively enough and can take away a lot of time but when it is a question of really important information, money and time are fading into the background.

How the Shredder works

To be sure that nobody can restore your files and get access to the private information which you wish to be destroyed for ever, it is necessary to use the Safe File Shredder. The shredder program work as follows:

File content becomes filled by special data array. i.e. the place on a disk which was occupied earlier became filled with other data (casual sequence of numbers). Thus, having overwritten its content with another one, you really destroy its presence. There are ways to restore the information and after such procedures, but they demand the special equipment which allows to fix is insignificant small level residual magnetization of a hard disk surface. It demands the big expenses which are expedient only if you stored plans of a super new aircraft.

But Safe File Shredder takes steps to exclude such possibility also: In addition, the program undertakes special steps to be assured that data will not be restored by residual level of a magnetic dust. After these manipulations program marks a data as deleted on the file system level and the place on a storage device becomes available for further use. In addition it can hide the folders and files names for restoring programs.

Other shredding programs use various algorithms. Basically they differ of passes quantity and types of data which placed in a space of deleted data and for some reasons it is enough. But the Safe File Shredder makes the protection even more convenient.

The resume of given article obviously enough. If you want, that traces of the deleted information have been carefully wiped, and the information remained only your property, you should take advantage with Safe File Shredder use. When it is a question of confidentiality, reliability and safety financial questions fade into the background.
