Delete Files Permanently on Mac

Posted: October 17th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Tips and Tricks | No Comments »

It is a surprise to many Mac users that when you delete files, even after the trash has been emptied there is a possibility of recovering the data using specialist recovery tools such as the Undelete feature of MacKeeper. This is because the file actually remains on the system, but is marked as free space so that over time it is rewritten with newer data. While this can be useful if you accidentally delete a file that you still need, it is concerning if the files you want to remove contain sensitive information such as tax records, social security numbers or bank details.

The Shredder utility included in MacKeeper from ZeoBIT can delete files or folders permanently, leaving absolutely no possibility of recovery. The files are gone forever and even specialized software cannot retrieve them. This can help to ensure that files containing sensitive information cannot be accessed by unauthorized parties. It should be used when deleting anything on your Mac which contains your personal information, banking details, tax records or social security number.

Some situations in which it is highly recommended that you use. Undelete to ensure that your files are completely removed. For example, if you intend to sell, donate or give away your Mac then you will want to ensure that none of your private feels can be recovered by the new owner. It is also recommended that if you need to take your Mac to a repair center, you should take an external back up of private files and use Shredder to delete them permanently from your Mac before leaving it in the hands of technicians.

The Shredder tool included with MacKeeper is easy to use, you simply need to drag and drop the files you want to permanently remove and then click on the ‘Shred’ button. Protecting your private information has never been easier and you can give it a try free of charge by downloading a fully functioning trial version of MacKeeper.
