Hi,

Everything is important if we can use. I think you have no idea about ASUS's Secure Delete utility. 

It is also very important and of course usable if we know the purpose of inventing the utility. 

Ok, listen please. When we delete anything from our OS, it can't be deleted it forever. It only can delete the location not the file.

So, anyone can recover it if your system goes to him. In this regard Secure Delete is helpful and works well.

If you delete using Secure Delete, the file will be completely irrecoverable. 

If you want to do it, just Right-Click on the file you want to delete and select the ASUS Secure Delete option, the simple will do everything to protect your data security.

I think it may change your thought.

Thanks

Hathy

I think the ASUS Secure Delete is no different to McAfee Shredder, Norton SystemWorks Wipe Info, and PC Tools Performance Toolkit 2013 Shred Files. They all deliver the same function, to make a file unrecoverable which is very useful in cases you have sensitive files on your hard drive. This is vital for some users that are keeping sensitive data.

Because deleting confidential files is basically not enough to assure you that those data can never be recovered. Generally, when deleting files and folders on the computer no matter what brand it is you may have, the operating system only deletes the location of the file but not the content or the file itself.

It still remains in the Recycle Bin until you decide on emptying it to finally delete the files but even this is not enough to make sure files are unrecoverable. Those files in the Recycle Bin that were emptied can still be recovered using different recovery programs that specialize in this part.

If you are sure that you don’t keep sensitive files on your computer and you don’t need it, you can remove it from your computer. For Windows Vista and Windows 7 users, click Start, Control Panel, and then “Uninstall a Program”. Find and select ASUS Secure Delete then click Uninstall. Follow the succeeding instructions after that.

For Windows 8 users, right-click the bottom left corner of the screen where the Start menu is usually located, select Control Panel, and follow the same steps above. For Windows XP users, you can remove it from the Add or Remove Programs applet in the Control Panel. The ASUS Secure Delete utility program is very common to users running Windows 7.
