  1. Thank you so much, that was completely my fault for not spending a few more minutes searching for the info I needed . Edit: Quick question here... I read this "Note: CCleaner can only securely delete files which have not yet been deleted from the Recycle Bin. If you have already delete files insecurely (for example, using Windows Explorer), you can delete them securely using Recuva." I haven't heard that the "Secure" erase using NSA or DoD standards didn't delete the items that were placed in the Recylcing bin during a systems use, so I should use Recuva after I run either NSA or DoD
  2. I'm an avid cCleaner user, and only recently stumbled upon the drive wiping feature. I didn't notice any documentation pertaining to the wiping method or if it is concidered a "Secure" erase. We usually use Acronis' Drive Cleanser tool which uses a triple pass algorithm and meets "DoD 5220.22-M" specifications. (See - http://www.usaid.gov/policy/ads/500/d522022m.pdf - for additional info) I guess what Im asking is, does your method meet these requirements and can it wipe all data permanently?
