Sometimes deleting a file in Windows is not enough. The data could be easily recovered with special software apps and you need to avoid that with sensitive data.
With O&O SafeErase you can rest assured that your deleted files won't be recovered. This program lets you wipe files, folders, disk partitions or even the whole hard drive in just a couple of clicks, using safe deletion methods that render recovery apps totally useless. Besides deleting files and folders, O&O SafeErase now also lets you delete temporary Internet files (cookies, history, data saved in forms and the likes) safely, thus protecting your privacy.
O&O SafeErase features a nicely designed interface with a main area (the so called Start page) where you can select the task you want to perform: delete files and folders, Internet files, temporary Windows files or disk partitions. Two other options (freeing disk space and deleting the whole computer) are not available in the demo version.
O&O SafeErase does an efficient job, though it can take a while depending on how many elements you've marked for erasing. You have the option of simulating file deletion before actually getting rid of the data, and can also save a report with details about the job. Plus there are six deletion methods to choose from, from the most secure one (in which data are overwritten by 35 different cycles) to the simplest one, where selected files are overwritten by zeros.
With O&O SafeErase you can easily erase sensitive data, including Internet files, in a few steps and make sure it's not recovered.
