Developing File Eraser


New Member
I have a Visual C++ program that needs to "erase" four files after it has unzipped them from a password protected zip file and then loads the data into objects. They are currently being deleted but some users are using a software product "UNDelete" to recover them and exploit this security hole.

All I want to do is erase these files programatically from the Visual C++ programs. I have downloaded the source code but it is obvious that I am looking at more than I need. Can some one point me in the right direction in regards to leveraging the Eraser code I need to do the above.

Thank You
Naturally your app is being developed under the GPL?

There is a sample include file with eraser that shows you the header calls to the DLL.
