Some files renamed/overwritten, some not

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Win XP/CC 1.40.520/IE6 - CC with 1 pass overwrite.

 

I have been using CC for several years, and I'm now using Recuva as well, both excellent products. I notice that when I run CC (as I do every couple of days) and then look at the results with Recuva in date order, I end up with a few hundred files with the name modifed to a random capital letter, such as LLLLLLLL.LL (I rather prefer the old lower case z's though). Some of these don't have a defined path, some are from temp internet files. They all seem to be overwritten as I can't make head or tail of any I recover. So far, so good.

 

The rest of the files deleted in the same CC session keep their file names, and many come from temp internet files too. Many of these are recoverable, not overwritten at all.

 

Why are some file names overwritten and not others? Why are many - the majority - of the deleted ('overwritten') files still recoverable?

 

Rgds.

In the light of "CCleaner's issues on xp is pretty much flawless" from rridgely in another thread, and the mildly worrying fact that nobody has responded to this thread, can anyone please confirm that this is happening to them too?

 

If it's just me then I'll go away and start to get paraniod.

 

Rgds.
