Ah, ok. That's just a false error when the directory is not empty. It will still delete the folder and it's contents though.

I've added a quite switch to prevent the false error from showing so it will not cause any false alarms about it. Please try the updated OPTION ONE with the new 1.61 SDelete again to see how that works now for you.

Note   Note

The first time that you click on Permanently Delete you will need to click on the EULA Agree button for SDelete. You will only need to do this once.

Attachment 161623

When used this will immediately permanently secure delete the file or folder that you right clicked on bypassing the Recycle Bin, and does 1 or 7 overwrite passes to help make sure the current version of the deleted file or folder is unrecoverable.


Does this process overwrite the files with zeroes or 7 random number sequences?

Hello Gary,

It performs a secure delete by overwriting the data on the hard drive with zeros, and repeats seven times.

Sorry if I brought back a dead thread, but is there a way to get this context menu reg to have the things in the 7 passes registry but also execute the -c and -z to clean the space and zero fill?

Hello NopeAvi, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The -C and -Z switchers require to specify a drive letter to use it on. That would not be easy to make universal.
