Secure Delete doesn't work in CCleaner Bug Reporting Posted October 11, 2007 However, nothing is getting securely deleted. Gurtz Hooray! I've posted about this at least three times before with absolutely zero response, so it's a relief to know I'm not alone in the universe. I've found this to be common with all releases of CC, at least in the last year when I started to use secure deletion. CC seems to delete some files, overwriting the file name with a random capital letter, such as LLLLL.LL, but the vast majority of files remain under their own name and many are recoverable with ease in an unblemished state. CC appears to overwrite those files I dump into a custom folder which I have set up for CC to empty, but all the rest, including temp internet files, are untouched. I'm running XP/SP2 home, IE 6.0 with no other security s/ware except AVG a/virus. Rgds.
