How to wipe your partition data permanently?
Do you think the data you have deleted permanently from your partition is really gone? No, these data actually still exist, just that they lose their references and other details in the file system, and hence become inaccessible. Data is not lost even if you format the partition or repartition the hard disk drive. They can be recovered using some good recovery software. If you are planning to sell off your PC or give your hard disk to someone, and your partition contains critical information like passwords, login information, credit card data, personal photos, videos etc., it is very necessary to wipe the partition completely, so that no recovery software can retrieve the data, and your data is not misused by others. This can be done by using advanced data erasing tools like Remo Drive Wipe, which wipe the sensitive data by overwriting it several times with carefully selected fixed and random values.
