Just by emptying Recycle Bin the files and folders are not gone forever. Anyone can use special recovery software to restore any deleted items. Yes, this is true and its the way Windows works. Any deleted file still exists on the hard disk until overwritten with some other content, for example with some other file. Someone can recover your secret files when you're away or if you sold your PC, that's why you should use Prevent Recovery.
Will it work with removable storage?
Yes, Prevent Recovery can wipe deleted files on any disk like usb flash disk, memory stick or any other sort of removable disk (media storage). However you cannot use it on CD (CDR, DVD) - such disks should be physically burn to avoid any possibility of recovery.
Clears Windows paging file (virtual memory cache)
Some programs can store unencrypted (as text) passwords or other sensitive information in computer's memory. Because of the Windows virtual memory structure, this information can be located in the paging file. Prevent Recovery will wipe contents of this system file to protect your privacy.
Because your hard disk free space can be over hundred Gigs, complete anti-recovery process can take a while. For example, up to one hour or even more on a large disk free space. Its normal. You can leave Prevent Recovery working and it will turn off computer when done. There is also built-in option to prevent computer from StandBy mode to make sure all operations will be fully complete.
