Safest file shredder
Posted on 2012-08-19
I have an old computer that I want to give away, but I want to totally erase my personal files before doing so. I have looked into file shredders such as File Shedder, Eraser, etc, and for each one there are people who said they could recover files after using it, via programs such as recuva and CIA unerase, which means the files were still recoverable. What protocols should I use (maybe using more than one software, one after the other?), and what software, to entirely erase the files on my hard drive so that they cannot be recovered?
