How effective are such programs in making files irrecoverable to more than the normal computer user?Which ones, free and paid, are the best to use?
Is this a school project, hatrickj?
@MAJ. Why the question; are you trying to be insulting?
Of course not, hatrickj, it just sounded as if someone was trying to do a school project on the subject without doing their own research.
OK!:)It was a genuine question. Has any research been done then on the matter?IMO too often what one sees on the web about any software are copied publishers' blurbs.
BTW I'm more suited to courses at U3A than school. lol
