SDelete

Delete files and erase traces"
A review by John

Do you know that data that is deleted from your hard drive using the standard file delete command in windows explorer can still be recovered? This is possible because the sector that contains the information has not been overwritten. This program is a command-line utility that helps you to delete files from your computer securely and permanently. As a command utility, it does not have a user-friendly or intuitive interface for beginners who need to learn the command syntax and switches to make use of the program.

As a command utility, the program uses fewer system resources and also displays the available command options that enable the new user to get up and running with the program after a few minutes of studying the commands. The program works by deleting files and overwriting the sector, so it becomes permanently inaccessible. It can be configured to run in the background and clean the free space from any partition on a drive. It can be set to do multiple overwrite of disk sectors to make the results more secure. The command also comes in handy to delete read-only files by using the options to remove file attribute before deleting.

This program does an excellent job of making deleted data unrecoverable.

SDelete is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in file management category and is available to all software users as a free download.
