Secure overwriting

Recommended Posts

I hope this question hasn't been posted. Choose "Options", "General". Then the user can choose between four "Secure overwriting" options. But when I go through all the other screens then there isn't an option to order RECUVA (RC) to securely overwrite any files. Seems RC uses some program code that has been copied from CCLEANER. Or am I mistaken ? Did I overlook anything ? See attachment.

Right click on anything that Recuva has found and you will, or should, get the option to securely delete. Is this what you mean, as it seems strange that an experienced user should miss this.....

Ooops, I totally missed that. To be frank, I used the program today for the second time because I deleted an entire folder with a lot of videos in it. I regularly install the new version but I used it for the second time today. That made me go through all (and I mean ALL) the options.

I think RECUVA (RC) should move all the "Overwrite file" options to a separate roll down menu with a warning message. Or perhaps add to the "General" window (in Options) a box that can be ticked and only when that box has been ticked RC is allowed to overwrite files.

See the thumbnail in the first post. RC could add a box (e.g. "Allow overwritng files") to the "General" window right above the overwrite options. Perhaps a roll down menu is not such a good idea.

 

What I still would like to see in RC is a button that closes the "Advanced Mode". I can switch to the "Advanced Mode" but I can't switch back/switch the "Advanced Mode" off.
