Wipe Lists

Top  Previous  Next

Attention! Once wiped, a file cannot be restored! No Windows or third-party data recovery utility can do this!

You may specify files and folders, and registry keys or key values that will be wiped and deleted through a single wipe and delete task on the Wipe Lists panel. Moreover, you may store such wipe lists to retrieve them and wipe later. You may also include wipe lists into a large wiping and cleaning task. Go to the Setting a Large Wipe and Clean Task section for details.

Some programs have their own temporary or scratch folders. It is wise to have them included in such wipe lists if you want to completely erase all temporary data from such programs.
