I ran a surface scan of Pandora Recovery software and discovered thousands of deleted images. These images were not deleted by me they showed up on screen one way or another. For example I found an image of Mariah Carey that Yahoo was displaying in the news promo section. I did not click on it but it is now on my computer as a "deleted Jpeg". I am not computer skilled to understand how that works but I suppose it is normal. In the Pandora program I can view these images perfectly clear it even gives the size. So last night I did a quote "very complex overwrite 35 passes" with CCleaner. Today I ran Pandora and I did not touch those so called deleted images. My question is "Why not" are these images in a file protected from the overwrites? Are they using up space?
Appreciate your help.

Does Pandora cache the files it recovers?
Have you checked to see if Ccleaner is deleting Pandora's cache if it exists before doing the overwrite?
In other words, is Pandora listed as a program that Ccleaner recognizes and cleans?
