Lets Take a Break!

Topic 3
A free digital shredder to easily and permanently
delete sensitive files!
34
Topic 3Free Digital Shredder!
  • Most people have some computer data that they
    would rather not share with others
  • Passwords
  • Personal information
  • Classified documents from work
  • Financial records
  • Etc.
  • When the time comes to remove the data from your
    hard disk, things get more complicated and
    maintaining your privacy is not as simple as it
    may have seemed at first
  • Who thinks that when you delete a file and then
    delete it from the recycle bin, it is really gone?

35
Topic 3Free Digital Shredder!
  • Your first thought may be that when you delete
    the file, the data is gone
  • When you delete a file, the operating system does
    not remove the file from the disk
  • It only removes the reference of the file from
    the file system table
  • The file remains on the disk until another file
    is created over it
  • And even after that, it might be possible to
    recover data by studying the magnetic fields on
    the disk platter surface!

36
Topic 3Free Digital Shredder!
  • Before the file is overwritten, anyone can easily
    retrieve it with a disk maintenance or an
    undelete utility
  • There are several problems in secure file
    removal
  • Mostly caused by the use of write cache,
    construction of the hard disk and the use of data
    encoding

37
Topic 3Free Digital Shredder!
  • A free utility is available online to help you
    really delete file(s)
  • With it you can safely and easily erase private
    data from your hard drive

38
Topic 3Free Digital Shredder!
  • Download Eraser at www.heidi.ie/eraser/
  • Great features
  • Erases both files and folders
  • Erases all hard drives
  • Appears as an 'Erase' option on the Context Menu
    of Windows Explorer and Recycle Bin
  • Erases Windows Temporary Files, Internet Cookies,
    Paging (swap) file, and Internet Cache
  • Erases contents of the Recycle Bin
  • Lets look at it now . . .
