Nowadays computer users usually choose to delete some unnecessary data by moving to Recycle Bin or Shift Delete key to free storage space. Or after you upgrade your old hard drive to a new hard drive, some commercial secret and personal privacy are deleted by you to keep data safe. As a matter of fact, the data is not cleared permanently and can be recovered by some professional data recovery software. Once the secrets are restored, some persons will use your personal information to do bad things so that it causes irretrievable loss. Therefore, to ensure data safety, it is essential to erase personal data after deleting files and folders to prevent confidential information from leaking.
After knowing the reason of erasing personal data, maybe you will ask how to remove classified data to avoid leakage loss. Is there a good way to achieve this aim? Do you know how to erase data? Fortunately, MiniTool company developed one software-Partition Wizard which is an easy-to-use, powerful and wonderful tool and can be used to erase personal data permanently to prevent others recovering the deleted data by any data recovery solution. The “Wipe Partition” function is designed to achieve this purpose. Once the operation is done, users cannot recover data with any data recovery software, so data security is greatly improved. How to wipe personal data? Please do it according to the below guidance.
