Erasing moved files


New Member
Hi. New user. I moved files from an old computer to an external hard drive. and subsequently from that hard drive to another computer. I nuked the old computer's drive and want to erase any traces of the moved files from the external hard drive (but not nuke it). Since the files were moved (not copied), they do not show up in the list of files now. Do I understand correctly that if I erase the empty space, it will write over where my moved files used to be and they will be permanently erased?
Yes, you understand correctly.
