I?ve encountered a problem I hope someone can help me with. Afraid I?m a near-novice, so treat me gently!
I seem unable to permanently delete various JPEGS and word documents I would like to see the back of.
All the data erasers I have used - CCleaner, Stellar Wipe, File Shredder and ERASER don?t seem to be able to remove this data, even when doing a 35-pass wipe. A data recovery utility called Pandora effortlessly recovers them in pristine condition. The result is the same even if I blitz individual JPEGS.
Following advice I have:
? Turned off the System Restore and Volume Shadow Service to prevent copies of the data being made.
? Detached my secondary hard drive whilst attempting to delete data from my main one
? Downloaded a utility called DIRSNOOP and purged the Master File Type entries. I used this utility to delete individual files that had been recovered.
Yet once I run Pandora all the data is again restored.
The only thing that works is overwriting the entire hard drive, but this is time consuming. What I need to know is why all this data seems impervious to my attempts to delete it.
Any advice would be much appreciated
