Hello,

I am worndering if there is a good software program that will permanently
erase files or folders. I know if I deleted a file or folder it doesn't
completly gets deleted in the hard drive. I know the data can be recovered,
which I don't want. So if anybody knows a good program that will complete
erase/destory/remove I would appreciate the suggestion. Thank you.

PGP Desktop does a good job of it. There's a freeware version available.
