How do I permanently overwrite Outlook's deleted messages beyond recovery?
Posted on 2004-05-02
I'm using East-Tec's Eraser software to completely overwrite junk that has accumulated on my machine -- much of which comes in form of spam that includes porn and other unsavory stuff. My understanding is that those messages may still be lingering somewhere on the machine after deletion in Outlook, but where? There doesn't seem to be anything in the Recycle Bin. Are those messages still referenced somehow in the .pst file after deletion? Basically, I wan't to isolate all "deleted" messages and overwrite them beyond recovery with one of Eraser's heavy-duty tools.
