An option to send found junk files to Recycle Bin!

Recommended Posts

Hey S Malik,

Thanks for your suggestion.

But, why do you want these junk files be sent to the Recycle Bin? Send junk files to the Recycle Bin, it won't free up the disk space.

 

Secure deletion option in the program actually does not work as its name suggests. I have another program that wipes files in the Recycle Bin securely.

Hey S Malik,

I think you misunderstood 'Secure deletion'.

It doesn't mean remove junk files to Recycle Bin.

 

Secure deletion - If you want to permanently remove the junk files, and don't want them to be recovered by data recovery software, please check this option. However, if you check this option, the deleting process will be slower.

I have not misunderstood that setting. "Secure deletion" is not wiping files securely. I wiped junk files using your Disk Cleaner. I was able to find those files intact using Recuva (https://www.piriform.com/recuva).
