Sending a document to Recycle Bin and then emptying the contents of the tool won't make the file in question disappear for good. Various file recovery software can easily restore deleted files, even after formatting your drive. One way to permanently remove a document or tool from your PC is to use a specialized program like DoYourData Super Eraser.
With its help, you can delete your web browser history and cache, uninstall unneeded utilities from your PC, permanently erase private documents and folders, and even wipe entire drives. By using this type of programs, you can reclaim disk space and protect your privacy at the same time.
In my testing, I encountered a couple of issues. For example, when I used the Internet Cleanup tool, I configure the program to erase unneeded data being stored in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. For some reason, DoYourData Super Eraser shut down my default web browser (Google Chrome) without showing any warnings.
Another disadvantage is that you cannot test the Wipe Free Space tool if you're using the trial version of the program.
Still, I was able to check most of its built-in tools and, except the Internet Cleanup utility, they all worked flawlessly and were very simple to handle. In conclusion, I think you should give DoYourData Super Eraser a try if you're looking for a quick and easy way to permanently delete data from your Windows PC.
