As I am sure many dotTechies know by now, simply deleting your files does not really delete the files. Rather, Windows just removes the file from the file table and file recovery techniques may still be able to recover it. That is were secure deletion software come in. There are, of course, many excellent freeware secure deleters with Heidi’s Eraser being the most famous there. There are, also, shareware secure deleters available for free, such as East-Tec Eraser 2009 (my personal tool-of-choice – that is what I use). If, however, you have not yet been satisfied with a secure deleter, here is your chance to grab a shareware one… for free, of course.
Similar to East-Tec Eraser 2009, WashAndGo 2009 provides more than just file/folder secure deletion capabilities; WashAndGo 2009 allows users to clean temporary files, clean browser data, clean application data, etc. Interestingly enough, it even has a file unlocker and program uninstaller. Here is a description of all the features as per the developer:
Typically WashAndGo would cost you €29.95 (although it would be WashAndGo 2010 since that is the latest version); but for a limited time (there are no details on how long this promotion will be live) you can get WashAndGo 2009 for free!
