Does anyone know exactly how this works? I have written a small script to securely delete stuff from the deleted items folder once it is already there. But if you right-click on a file and select the move option, is the file:-
1. Physically moved within the filesystem to the deleted items folder?
2. Physically copied within the filesystem to the deleted items folder?
3. Left in situ , but marked as deleted, so it appears only in the deleted folder and not in the normal directory listing?
In the first 2 cases - the file will presumably still exist in plain-text somewhere in the filesystem and the only way to delete it would be to overwrite all the free blocks in the filesystem?
I have already suggested in the suggestions part of the forum that we have new functionality to allow for the secure deletion of files and directories.
