Keep your private information private with East-Tec Eraser 2012

You know, eBay and Craig’s List are wonderful things. You can find all kinds of bargains there, and can usually sell things you either want or need to get rid of rather quickly. There great around the Holiday’s for quick cash and gift purchases; and computers are usually high traffic items that trade hands quickly.  The bad thing about used computers though is that hard drives can often retain data, even if you’ve already erased it. This is why I like tools like East-Tec Eraser.  It’s a hard drive security tool for Windows.

Getting rid of data on your hard drive isn’t always easy, but with East-Tec Eraser you can completely destroy information stored without your knowledge or approval, like your Internet history, web pages and pictures from sites you visited on the Internet, any unwanted cookies, and your chatroom conversations.  You can even get rid of deleted e-mail messages and attachments, temporary files, the Windows swap file, and the contents of your Recycle Bin, etc.

If you have (or had) sensitive information on your computer, and want or need to get rid of it and the tracks it leaves behind, don’t worry. East-Tec Eraser 2012 meets and exceeds government and industry standards for the permanent erasure of digital information, as well as Russian and German security standards; and industry standards like the Bruce Schneier Algorithm or the Peter Gutmann Method.

iBin – portable Recycle Bin for your USB Flash Drive

Okay, you’ve deleted a file, or a bunch of files, accidentally or intentionally, and you want them back. As you know, most of the time you’ll be able to simply restore them from Recycle Bin. Fortunately, back in ’95, Microsoft introduced Recycle Bin in their operating system, keeping the files that are deleted in case you want them back later. Unfortunately, when you delete a file from a USB flash drive, it will never be stored in Recycle Bin. This means that recovering the deleted files will require a third party recovery software and most of times it will be quite difficult to accomplish.

Happily, there is this tiny app called iBin which is actually a Recycle Bin created specifically for USB flash drives and it works quite the same as Windows Recycle Bin.

You can find out more by reading the full review of iBin or downloading iBin.

Secure Delete Confidential Files With SDelete

Delete confidential files permanently. Why? Because someone with a recovery software can easily restore deleted files. To permanently erase files and prevent confidential files getting into wrong hands, Microsoft offers a free command line utility – SDelete (Secure Delete) – this overwrites all the space occupied by the files you delete to prevent data recovery. This command line utility is part of the Sysinternals Suite.

P.S: files can be recovered even if you delete them with ‘Shift+Delete’ or you Empty the Recycle Bin, so yes… secure delete confidential files when there is a little chance that someone might recover them back 🙂
