If you have some "sensitive" information, that needs to be removed, I suggest a program, like Eraser
This is one of the security programs WereBo
It will overwrite the file with a series of 1's and 0's, effectively "erasing" the file.
You can set it to overwrite a file, using from 1 to 35 passes.
The more passes, the longer it takes, but the more secure the erasure.
I would use a minimum
of 3 passes, for sensitive information.
It adds an option to the right click menu, called "Erase".
So when you right click on a file, choose "Erase", instead of "Delete".
When you choose to Erase a file, make sure that's what you want to do, because recovery of the information will not be possible, without the use of some expensive
recovery techniques, if then.
