umm i once came accross a program... i think it was "steganos security suite" that had a shredder. basically, when it deletes, the HDD writes 0s to the space where the file was, i dont think it can then be recovered. the normal procedure is that the HDD just marks the area where the file was as empty space, but the physical 0s and 1s are still there.
