Deleting files from your computer is not as straight forward as it may seem at first. When you delete a file from your computer, it is not completely deleted. You may think that you totally emptied out your recycle bin but these deleted files can be recovered using different recovery tools and we are sure pro’s are aware of these different techniques. If you are looking to delete a file permanently from your Windows, then you will need to be sure that it has been deleted completely.
There is a tool to ensure this is done properly and the name of this tool is RightDelete. This neat little tool allows users to permanently delete any file of your choice from your computer system securely, which means that it will not be able to be recovered later in the future. This program is very simply yet very, very powerful. It is a secure method of file deletion. The publisher says:
“RightDelete uses the seven pass method, i.e. overwriting the content with $00, $ff, $00, $ff, $00, $ff, random (256), before the file is actually deleted and buffers blushed. This will ensure this file is no longer recoverable SO be sure you want to delete the file selected!”
After you have downloaded the software, unzip it and run the Rightdelete.exe file you see. It will ask you if you want to add RightDelete to the context menu, on this prompt, click “OK”. Now, to put it into use, you want to right-click on any file you want to delete. Select the “Securely Delete This File”.
After you choose the aforementioned option, it will again as you for confirmation because once you move on, you cannot undo your action. Click “OK” to continue.
That is all you have to do to permanently get rid of a file from your system. The file will no longer be recoverable. It is compatible with different versions of the Windows OS including Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista. However, Mac OS and Linux are still not supported.
