Wipe file - why and how
I'm writing this article to answer some typical
questions that our users usually ask. The evidence of file security
problems make people thinking about powerful crypto-systems and
security utilities. The problem is that we use protection software and
don't understand what it does. I'm not writing another text book about
security - I just want to explain how to protect files that we delete.

The first and the most
important about wiping
Windows deletion is not secure enough. When you delete
files in Windows by moving them into Recycle Bin all the data remain
on your hard disk. You don't have to believe my words because you can
make sure of it yourself.
Try to search for some file recovery utilities. Such
as R-Undelete or DIY
DataRecovery. Then try to recover some file on your hard disk. An
ancient information that your hard disk remembers will astonish you.
And you can see all this because you did not use wiping. You just put
files into Recycle Bin. Or press Shift + Delete on your keyboard. Try
to wipe some file with QuickWiper or some other file shredders and
then recover it.
What is WIPING
Wiping file is the process of overwriting the space
where file located with some information. Different file wiping
algorithms exists. Most file shredders allow to select which algorithm
you would like to use.
Our first goal is wiping free disk space, to do
impossible the recovering of your sensitive files, which were deleted.
You can use the free solution - Windows Defragmenter.
Run it and defragment all disk space, but some small pieces of files
can still remain on your hard disk. So the best solution is using
wiping functions for disk space included in file shredders.
Wiping free disk space takes too much time, so you
cannot do it everyday.
The solution for everyday file wipe is QuickWiper.
