You probably delete dozens of various files from your PC every day. But have you ever wondered what happens to a file after its deletion? How does “deletion” work in the first place? Does a file just disappear from the system without a trace after deletion? Does it become an empty space? What happens to the often confidential information contained in the file? And basically, where do deleted files go?
We are sharing a great video below this post that answers all those questions in a fun and easy-to-follow, yet scientific way. Michael from VSauce walks you through the phases of file deletion and concludes that there is no such thing as “deletion”, only overwriting!
There are numerous data wipe standards for the secure removal of sensitive information from PC hard drives and removable data storage devices. east-tec Eraser offers you 14 of them. In this article we would like to recommend you wipe methods for different privacy scenarios and tell you what speed/security balance you can expect when running them. We have also included screenshots to show you how much it is a child`s play to switch between standards with the software’s built-in slider selector.
