Recycle bin check

Recommended Posts

I am extremely happy with this product.


However, I checked my recoverable files with a checker after running CCleaner.


I found that I could not recover the files in my Recycle Bin which was expected;


BUT found that all of the files deleted by CCleaner that were NOT in the recycle bin when the program completed the cleanup were fully recoverable.


Are my settings incorrect? I am running the newest release on Win2K

welcome to CC commdude!

files are not permenantly deleted till they are over-written.

please go to Ccleaner>options>settings>secure file deletion.

set that to 7 passes, then see if you can still recover the files.
