Preventing recovery of data from hard disks is a must when trying to avoid leakage of sensitive information. Unwanted access to valuable data is easy because with a simple deletion of a file, computers don’t erase it permanently from the system. What happens is that the specific location on the hard disk occupied by the deleted file is only marked as empty and available for replacing with another.
Furthermore, formatting hard drive won’t prevent individuals to recover data previously stored on it. Luckily, there is a free application that makes file shredding as simple as it can get.
