Hard Drive Eraser Tool
Hard drives may be used to store very critical information. If you delete a file from your hard drive either using shift delete or by emptying the Recycle bin, it doesn’t actually get removed from the hard drive. The data still resides on the drive, just that the file becomes inaccessible because it loses its details such as references in the file system, and the operating system marks the space as ready for being overwritten. Data is not removed even if you format your hard drive. There are many data recovery software which can recover all deleted or formatted data.
