Need to copy files without leaving a trace

  ukhomerj2003 10:27 13 Dec 04

I am due to be dismissed on unfair grounds by my employer, and I need to copy files from my laptop to a Cd in order to poduce them at a later date at an Unfair Dismissal Hearing.

How can I remove the files, and ensure the compnay doesnt know I have done this.

Be very careful, as what you are trying to do is Illegal, I think.

Someone did this at my wifes place of work, and they lost due to what you are doing. You are not allowed to remove/copy any software from works PC's as it's not your's.

F.E will jump on me if I wrong.

Even tho these files are mine, generated by myself.

They are logs of interviews and my own private records.

Copying the files to CD will not leave a trace you have done so. Deleting the files is another matter, they could be recovered later.

This is technical advice, what you do is what YOU do
Using the Cut option rather than copy will transfer
a file from one location to another, leaving no discernable record in the original folder/machine.
However I do beleive as has been said so often before, there is no sure fire way to remove any data from a hardrive once written short of destroying the drive.

if you have time, move the files then run a programme like "puffer" which will overwrite all free space, you can set the times it will overwrite........
