Where do Deleted Files go?

Posted by rjbiii on October 17, 2007

Most of us know the answer to this: they don’t go anywhere until overwritten. Yahoo! Tech has posted a basic primer going over the process again, but it also discusses tools for retrieving deleting files, and for “permanently” deleting files (so that they can’t be recovered).

These deleted files aren’t accessible via Windows, but data recovery software like File Scavenger can quickly recover most recently-deleted data from your PC as if it had never been deleted at all. If you’re sure you want to delete those files for good so programs like this won’t work, there’s plenty of software for that too.

Interesting piece with a few nice links to tools you might like to have in your arsenal.
