Prevent Restore renders files and folders unrecoverable by using several security algorithms to ensure that nothing is left on the hard disk.
If you clean your computer's Recycle Bin, the files and folders are not deleted forever. Anyone can use special recovery software to restore deleted data (files and folders) because the deleted file's remnants still exist on the hard disk until overwritten with other data.
This program's primary purpose is to make it impossible to recover files and folders deleted in the past. The program uses several security algorithms (DoD 5220.22, Gutmann, and others).
Prevent Restore can wipe deleted files on any disk, for example, USB flash, SSD, memory stick, or any other sort of removable disk (media storage). However, you cannot use it on CD (CDR, DVD) - such disks you should physically destroy to avoid any possibility of recovery. As an additional feature, the program can erase the paging file of OS Windows (virtual memory cache), which contains a cache of personal information, for example, usernames and passwords.
