Prevent Restore screenshotIf you clean PC's Recycle Bin, the documents and folders are not removed forever. Anyone can use special recovery utilities and recover any removed data (files or folders) because any removed file still exists on the hard drive until will be overwritten with other information.

The general purpose of this utility is to make impossible restoring of documents and folders which was removed in the past. The software uses numerous security algorithms (DoD 5220.22, Gutmann and other). While working this application fills out data to the end of every cluster, leaving no chance to recover even just one word!

This program can clean removed documents on any drive, for example: SSD, usb flash, memory stick or any other type of removable drive (media storage). Also, you cannot use it on CD (DVD, CDR) - such disks you should physically burn to avert any chance of restoring. As an additional option the application can wipe paging file of Microsoft Windows (virtual memory cache) which includes cache of personal data, for example: usernames or passwords.


  • Remove cluster tips of deleted files.
  • Tells you how long it will take.


  • Security breaches cannot be guaranteed.
