Overwrite Files with a File Shredder

A file shredder is an extremely important component of your security toolkit. In essence, this type of utility will allow you to securely erase files or folders beyond recovery by overwriting their contents numerous times with either random or specific data. Some high level erasure methods use a combination of random and specific character sets.

With a “normal” deletion, even in those instances where the Recycle Bin has been emptied, files may be recovered using even the most basic recovery tools. This is because a “deletion” only removes the pointer to a file- the actual file remains on your hard drive or other storage media. Only by overwriting the file numerous times is the file obliterated, rendering recovery efforts invalid.
