Wipe Lists

Top  Previous  Next

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

You may specify files and folders that will be erased through a single erase preset on the Wipe Lists panel. Moreover, you may store such wipe lists to retrieve them and erase later. You may also include wipe lists into a large erasing and cleaning preset. Go to the Setting a Large Erase and Clean Preset 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.
