Prevent Restore Review

Prevents recovery of already deleted files
A review of Prevent Restore by Tina de Pierre

When you delete things, you might not be aware that they are not generally permanently removed from your media. They may end up in the Recycling Bin but even after deleting them from there, it is still possible to retrieve that data using various recovery tools. With Prevent Restore, you can permanently delete data so that it is near-impossible to recover it ever.

The program uses algorithms to overwrite deleted data and in the end, the stuff that has been deleted will be overwritten with random characters and digits, making it next-to-impossible to retrieve deleted data.

When using Prevent Restore, it is good to note that it won't permanently remove existing data but only work on files and folders which have already been deleted. Before Prevent Restore begins its work, it will calculate how long it will take to permanently erase deleted data. You can have it set to shut down your system once completed, making Prevent Restore suitable to be run when you're off to bed.

Overall, Prevent Restore is a useful solution to permanently delete data and provides piece of mind. It is in-the-end an effective tool.
