Wipe Option Would Be GREAT

Recommended Posts

It would be fantastic if, after searching for deleted files, users had the option to either recover these files, leave them 'as is', OR WIPE them clean, including file names, for security reasons.

As you can read in this topic

 

This feature is coming soon... :)

 

Recuva will probably use the same secure deletion algorythms as CCleaner (simple overwrite (1 pass), DoD 5220.22-M (3 passes), NSA (7 passes)) :)

Sorry I missed that - much appreciated. Fantastic addition. My only hope is that the wipe feature erases file names as well as content. Currently CCleaner does not. Content cannot be (easily) recovered, but file names remain in tact even after erasing them. Hopefully this will be remedied in the soon to be released version... Thanks ! !

i hope in a wipe option too! :)

 

"wipe free space"

or, after the list of the recoverable files, select what file(s) to delete with easy to use selections ... and wipe! :)

 

i suggest some testing AFTER wipe, useful also with third party wipe programs.
