How do you overwrite a picture found with deep scan from delete box?

Are you talking about ccleaner or recuva (sounds like recuva to me)

You right click the offending file and select Overwrite Highlighted. A deep scan runs a normal scan first, so if you are selecting a file with a file name displayed, subsequent scans will still show this name (Recuva cannot amend system files). However the file data will have been overwritten with zeroes. With a file found by deep scan (no file name, just a number) the file will also have been overwritten and will not be shown again in a subsequent scan.

But if I want to pull up pictures from way down deep and want to use the Guzman 35 passes to get it to work.   

I have it set to that but never know if it actually find things on the screen.   

How do I know it is actually working.  

Instructions are not very complete that I can find for setting items up in options.

So if you do the extra deep clean checked in advance Options section.  (I checked them all)

It took a long time but pulled up a group of pictures from somewhere.   Some were deleted a long time ago and you could check them and pull down the box and it has a place to recover and check but the write over is greyed out.   Possibly by the next time I run recurva the Guzman 35 passes have been taking place in the background.  The next time I run the same deep scan they are gone.

If you checked all the boxes in Actions/Options then you wil see non-deleted files as well as deleted. If you try to overwrite a non-deleted file the action will be greyed out. Recuva doesn't work in the background. You don't have an SSD do you?
