Need to remove sensitive data from your computer? Many people don't realize that deleting a file doesn't actually erase it; it just removes references to its location on your system. The file is still there and can usually be restored with a good disk tool. When you want to make sure all traces of a file are really gone, you need a program like BCWipe. This freeware utility hooks into the Windows 95 and NT Explorer right-click context menu to help you get rid of files permanently. Files and folders can be wiped clean and deleted with just a few clicks. Two levels of erasure are provided: Normal two-pass standard wiping and U.S. Department of Defense seven-pass extended-character rotation wiping. BCWipe also lets you clean all free space on your hard drive(s) as well as shred the contents of the Windows swap file. If you need an easy way to delete data forever, check out BCWipe.
