Recover and Delete

Recommended Posts

You can overwrite the contents of the file by right clicking on it and selecting secure delete. You can't get rid of the file name in Recuva's found files list, as this would be modifying the MFT, which no sane person would attempt. A wipe free space would do it, and get rid of everything else as well, but you may consider this to be overkill.

Thanks!  I just want to get rid of the file once I've got another one copied on another drive.  Just to free up some space on the original drive, and so I won't keep seeing it in the Recuva recovered files.  There are so many files recovered that I get confused as to what I've copied to elsewhere.  (DUH!)
