The FBI/CIA has tools no available to use to recover any file and almost any time stamp. What are you going to do with this hdd you are wanting to delete files off?

The entre surface of the drive needs to be written over at least 7 times and I've heard 20+ is the FBI baseline. Yikes......!!!!!! If you're trying to get rid of all that porn you'll need to yell, "pull" and then hit that HD head on with 3 1/2" 12 ga mag filled with #4 steel.

if you want things gone you need to get a shredder as long as it shreds best 1 i suggest is evidence elminator that has all these kinds of methods of shreading..
then to offically make it gone you format 10 times in a row.. just format as soon as that is done do it again.. and then do it again over and over 10 times things will be gone. or least make it like 2 years for them to recover it
