Files On The PC are Recoverable.

In today's Sunday Times, there is an article which says that even though we delete all our files on the PC, they are still recoverable. OMG!

There was this guy who had his e-mail, pass words and social number or something recovered by experts to testify to this point. There was another guy 30 plus whose Porn trail and activities were also recovered. Both guys deleted their files on the hard disk and sold their PCs as second-hand goods.

Now I knew this was true for a long time now about 5 years or more ago. As far as I was told -plus my little knowledge of computers - the only way to clean out the evidence is to re-format the whole damn drive. ( Yup by the end of the first 6 months, the hard drive is considered `Damned' becos of the amount of porn sites visited and infected by ). In doing it this way, you are actually cleaning the slate in a manner of speaking.

On the other hand, if you want to be free from anxiety and embarrassment, just dun go to porn websites. Then there is really nothing to hide.

Or just don't sell your old computers to anyone who is smart enough to find all your "deleted" files... LOL

Of course it's not a bad idea to just keep it hidden in the basement too..
