Drive Wiping – How to Securely Delete Files From Your HDD or SSD

Written by R3 Team on . Posted in Data Protection

Be careful people!! When replacing your hard drive, laptop, desktop or any device that has a hard disk users are often not aware that even if you have deleted your data/reinstalled the operating system it is still possible to regain that data if one is so inclined.

Unless you deal with your hard disk in the correct manner there is a real danger your photos, documents or anything that was stored on your device will fall into the wrong hands.
