How effective is right-click erase?

Hello,

How effective it is? I read files deleted by right-click erase are easily recoverable by Recuva etc... Is it true?
It even doesn't showing method option. What method does it use for right-click erase?

And is Erase software really that good? I read it's best free file shredder program for custom erasing.

Also, should I have stable build or nightly builds? Nightly builds are some beta versions or what? Looks like stable version wasn't updated for a long time.

Thanks.

You expect an instant response - the forum is run by volunteers, please be patient.

Eraser works and you can test it yourself.


>>are easily recoverable by Recuva etc
There are many reasons a file could be 'recovered'
- An undelete app is running protecting files from removal
- Older versions exist on the drive as deleted and not erased data.
- The drive is being synced an so the file is resynced on the next pass.
- Older versions exist in the recycle bin and can be recovered.

The best option is to erase the file and do a freespace erase once in a while.

OK, thank you. And what does right-click erase use for erasing? The default method? Like gutmann method?
