yes, the data can be recovered through the recovery tool. You need registry cleaner if wish not to be recovered by anyone.

Yeah it is very imp to delete all the sensitive data b4 u get rid of ur old system.The simplest way to do this is to format all the drives,but that too may not delete all the data and there are always chances to recover them.I can suggest you 1 tool that will remove all ur data permanently forevr & no othr tool cn also be able to recover it."Advanced System Optimizer", has a tool named Secure Delete that does the permanent deletion of the data,but be cautious once the data removed can not be recovered anyhow.

U can download its free version from cnet
