Why do you need the Disk Doctors File Shredder for your home or business?
When users delete files on computers running Windows the file is either placed in the recycle bin or, if the file is deleted using a shift+del key combination, it is removed from view completely. Once emptied, files from the recycle bin are also presumed removed from the computers hard drive. But the content of these files remains completely intact in the space on the drive they were written to. All that has really happened is that the allocation area or the index of the file system (FAT or NTFS) marks the area used by the deleted file as empty.

Why is this sometimes a problem?  
When we want private or sensitive data removed it must be done in a way that it can never be recovered. Businesses storing customer financial data must be able to guarantee the security of that information. Research that is proprietary cannot be placed at risk.

How is this data at risk?
Anyone with access to either your computer or its network can restructure those deleted files easily.  The actual raw contents of the files are always present even if the file has been deleted and waits overwriting by the operating system. Any deleted file, which is not overwritten, can be recovered.

The final question is then:  “How can we delete a file beyond any possible risk of recovery and remove a deleted file permanently from the hard drive when Windows is not deleting the files content?
