Windows 7: Using Win7 Recycle Bin or DOD Eraser?

Using Win7 Recycle Bin or DOD Eraser?

Hopefully everyone knows that when you dump your recycle bin in Windows your files actually are not erased. Right?

Here is the Web Link
Well I have found and have been using a great add-on to Windows 7 which takes your Recycle bin to a new level. The FREE program installs over your present Recycler but has many options to erase your programs. You can select a 7 pass Dept of Defense (DOD) erase that insures your files are gone and can not be recovered.

Also if you don't want to use this program and want to recover a file you accidently deleted you can use thsi FREE program from the folks that bring you CCleaner.
It's called Recuva and can show you all the files on your HD that you thought you deleted but can be recovered.
