File recovery

  baldyx 15:46 30 Jun 10

I have ran utility RECUVA which highlighted a file : 'Outlook express' with path: c:\ & state :excellent.

Then I recovered the same file to a folder called c:\recovered, and then wiped it using BcpWipe utility.

So i was expecting the file to be destroyed for ever. But when I reran RECUVA utility , it was again displyed as before ! In other words the file can't be destroyed.

Please anyone explain what's happening.

Outlook Express is an integral part of windows, you can only delete a files contents, and not the file itself.
