If you only delete files, they may be later recovered using any file unerase or recover utility. To make this impossible, you may set R-Wipe&Clean wipe files before deleting on the Docs and Internet tab of the Settings panel.

If the Wipe files before deleting check box is clear on the Docs and Internet tab of the Settings panel, the Clean and Wipe Now button changes its name to Clean. The files will be only deleted without wiping.

R-Wipe&Clean will start cleaning the computer, and the Deleting and wiping dialog box will appear showing the progress of cleaning.
