You’ve deleted your sensitive and classified financial information. No hackers could possibly steal your personal data, right?
Wrong! You might think your files are deleted, but really they’re only hidden. New data will eventually replace it, but until then hackers could still read it. And even after that, magnetic field patterns could still be read from the disk surface.
If you want to get serious about your personal security, you need to erase sensitive data for good. You can do that using Eraser. It’s a free download for wiping clean all traces of deleted files.
It has a simple, clean interface, and can permanently erase data from any drive that works with Windows. You can even schedule deletions to happen automatically.
When you download, use the Stable Build link.
While the program itself is simple, there are a lot of options. Read my step-by-step Eraser guide here.
