XL Delete is a powerful secure delete tool that will permanently delete sensitive and private files. XL Delete can permanently remove any file, entire folders, and even Internet cookies, history, and cache files. Anything you delete with XL Delete cannot be retrieved using file recovery software.
Many people believe that emptying the recycle bin will delete a file forever. This belief is not true. Removing a file without using a secure delete tool will leave all the file data on the hard drive. Windows will just mark the area where the file is on the hard drive as overwriteable so that it can reuse the space when necessary. Special data recovery software can search for the data and able to undelete the file to view all of the original contents. Use XL Delete to remove all files and prevent hackers and identity thieves from going through deleted files and finding passwords, credit card numbers, and other private information.
When you delete a file with XL Delete, the file data will be overwritten several times using specialized methods to prevent data recovery software from being able to undelete the file. XL Delete will also incorporate several obfuscation techniques to hide the original file name and file size from data recovery software.
