Apply "Secure File Erase" Option to Cleaner

Hello,

 

I use and love CCleaner and Recuva. I have CCleaner set up to secure erase everything deleted. I ran Recuva on my primary Windows partition today out of curiosity and noticed all the files CCleaner deletes with its cleaning option (and nothing else) were available for recovery. That is despite having the "Secure File Delete" option checked in the options in CCleaner. 

 

I suggest making this option also apply to items deleted with CCleaner's cleaning function.

 

Thank you for your time.

So you are stating that if one normally uses CCleaner the files being cleaned must be permanently removed as "Secure File Delete" does ?

 

If so, don’t you think that this may case a lot of problems for the average normal user that by accidently cleaned files that should not have been removed?

 

"Secure File Delete" functionality is there for a reason and the normal cleaning functionality as well.
