Recycle Bin files deleting


tigerjack

Recommended Posts

Hi guys
I'm looking for a simple and fast (and safe) software to delete the files in  windows Recycle Bin. The "eraser" or "shredder" option should appear in the Recycle Bin context menu.
Any suggestions?
thx

Ccleaner 

I'm not an expert, but I think Ccleaner deletes the data exactly like windows
I need a software that makes data difficult to recover
I've heard about overwriting methods and I do not know if CCleaner uses these algorithms

CCleaner has four methods of secure deletion:

Simple Overwrite (1 pass)

DOD 5220.22-M (3 passes)

NSA (7 passes)

Gutmann (35 passes).

A 'pass' refers to how many times CCleaner writes over the spot on the hard drive.

The more times CCleaner writes to that spot, the harder the file will be to recover by any means.

The drawback is that it will take CCleaner longer to complete the job.

unfortunately it's not what I'm looking for
- there are no entries in the context menu (in Ccleaner free) that I use
- I have to start the whole program
- PrivaZer (which I'm testing now) instead has it

But have you put them there (you have to allow them in program settings). If have enabled and still do not appear, tell us which version of Windows is in use then we can tell you how to manually add them.

use win7
when I installed AVG pc tuneup there was the "shredder" entry in the contextual menu of files, folders and recycle bin (as it is now with PrivaZer I'm testing)
so I could safely erase what I wanted in a moment

CCleaner must be installed (not portable) and You must use correct CCleaner, not any pink (Important)

Yuo must enable Recycle.Bin context menu in settings (see picture) - if not appears, there is probably problem with You computer, but You can add manually (see registry content)

CCleaner.JPG

 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\shell\Open CCleaner...]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\shell\Open CCleaner...\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\CCleaner\\ccleaner.exe"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\shell\Run CCleaner]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\shell\Run CCleaner\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\CCleaner\\ccleaner.exe /AUTORB"

NB! This is for all versions, no matter, if You have 32.bit Windows or 64-bit Windows installed. CCleaner is always in folder

%ProgramFiles%\CCleaner

Copy to Notepad (important to copy), then "Save as", select all files and Unicode, save as name may be for example CCleaner_RecycleBin_cont_menu.reg

If done, double click on this reg file and OK OK (two times) if UAC is enabled, You must confirm.

not true, many people believe this urban legend so dont feel bad. I used to as well until a "situation" forced me to learn more about secure file deletion.  :) 

 

also you could read this: https://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~pgut001/pubs/secure_del.html:)

wow very useful explanations :clap:
now I have the command CCleaner in the context menu of recycle bin

and now a last question: if I understood correctly this concerns only recycle bin (as I had asked) but I would like to know if there is the possibility of adding the "eraser" command or similar to the context menu of files and folders, ie without having to go through recycle bin

 

And about ZaG writing above and your link in "Recommendations" he mentions a program called Eraser ... I'm looking for it now

Yes, it is possible. There can be put everything, absolutely everything you want, but I do not recommend to use Privazer at all because it can make to you a lot of trouble. It is PUP.
This is the only one thing, what I recommend to do with Privazer - remove it permanently and for ever from your computer. Forget this for ever. It is malware.

It is possible but remember since this is a right click executing thing , there is no undo.. So could be FATAL if you do it ON THE WRONG FILES/DIRECTORIES.

 

It is tantamount with the MSDOS 3.0 command format c:

(No Confirmation.)

Thank You about warning but the idea of secure deletion is just that. :lmao:

 

PrivaZer can be PersonallyUnwantedProgram for some butterfingers, but it's fully clean, and for me the most Wanted Privacy Tool. :win:

 

Kcleaner is one possibility and :notworthy: Mr. Developer is honorable member of this forum.  Kcleaner has automated functions and secure deletion, but I'm not Kcleaner specialist.
