Prevent Restore 4.00
Purpose If you clean computer's Recycle Bin, the files and folders are not deleted forever. Anyone can use special recovery software and restore any deleted data. Yes, this is true. Any deleted file still exists on the hard disk until will be overwritten with other data, for example with data of some other file. Anyone can recover your deleted files when you're away from your PC, or if you sold your PC, or gave it in to repair... The main purpose of Prevent Restore program is to make deleted files and folders unrecoverable. The program interface made as Wizard program, thus newbie can make professional job. Prevent Restore will overwrite all free disk space on your hard disk(s) that contain fragments of deleted files by random data to avoid any possibility of recovery. Program uses several security algorithms (DoD 5220.22, Gutmann you can replace deleted data with random characters, digits, spaces e.t.c.). While working Prevent Restore fills out information to the end of each cluster, leaving no chance to restore even just one word! Is there any chance to recover data that was overwritten? Here is an answer from world knowledge base WikiPedia: "Since 1996 ...there's no practical evidence that overwritten data can be recovered. Moreover, there are good reasons to think that it cannot." Prevent Restore makes unrecoverable temporary files, cached files, logs e.t.c. which were also previously deleted. Why this program should process all free disk space? While working Prevent Restore takes all free disk space, but when the program finishes free disk space will be returned to it's previous condition. Don't worry about that. This is made to make sure that all possible free space was overwritten with random data. The main reason why it should be done this way - is that Windows writes files to any place on the hard disk - to the end of free space, to the beginning, in the middle... And the result is that deleted files located everywhere on disk! That's why it's important
