I have recently had someone who came across the PC Improvements web site searching for information on how to permanently delete files.
He found the article about undeleting files, but nothing about deleting files, so he took advantage of the free help.
This was his e-mail.
I found your web site on the Internet and decided to take
you up on your offer of assistance. My research has lead me
to several programs that will help undelete files, but I have
yet to discover one that deletes files permanently. There
seems to be a way to retrieve those files that are even intentionally
deleted. Well, I don't want that. I need a program that sends
deleted files into a state so unretrievable that not even
Scottie or Jordie LaForge could find them. Who sells such
a product? Do you know?

Here is my reply...
I know of two programs that say they will permanently delete
your files. I have never had the need to use any of these
programs so I haven't used them, but I've heard good things
Both of these programs should do the trick. They work by
locating the space that you want to delete and then the write
over and erase that same sector several times over so that
there is no trace of the data left.
Both of the products are relatively inexpensive. I've seen
Burn It! packaged in a box set for $27.99 Cdn. and Nuts and
Bolts for $49.99 Cdn.
