Files prior to re-format still there


New Member
I was just using Ontrack Easy Recovery running the RawRecovery tool, that is:

"The RawRecovery tool allows you to scan severely corrupted partitions for files using a file signature search algorithm. This tool will help you recover files from a partition with damaged directory structures. Over 225 popular file signatures are available for scanning for your file data in this tool.

And, to my suprise, tons of files that were on my PC before I reinstalled Windows after a crash some years ago are still there, easily recovered, despite the fact that I've run Eraser several times since then. Why doesn't Eraser take care of these files? How can I clean them out?
Have you perform a full free space overwrite including cluster tips ? :?
