104: Secure delete items directly from the Finder
Authored by: hamarkus on Sep 06, '05 03:41:24PM

Rob, either this is a type or G5s are really slow...

Secure deleting a 30 MB file took 17 seconds on my 1GHz Powerbook.

Which, compared to a virtually instantaneous <i>non-secure</i> deletion of that same file, is kinda slow if you're not used to it. 17 times slower, in fact, all without visual feedback. Hence Rob's heads-up.

Ah, just re-read Rob's comment. Yep, 35 seconds is darn slow for 860kb! Took me 32 seconds for a 101mb file [1.67Ghz Powerbook]. Must be a typo.

Woo, and I remembered to post HTML formatted this time. ;P
