A faster way to securely delete files
Authored by: dandj on Feb 06, '09 07:27:28PM

In the defence business, to declassified or remove classified data on a hard drive requires the physical destruction of the drive with a hammer (or similar) and witnessed by a security officer. Overwriting is not sufficient to meet security procedures.

That pretty secure deletion, and quicker than the Finder.

Same applies to toner cartridges from copiers and printers used for classified work.
