Let's consider an example. You are going to buy a more powerful Mac and therefore need to sell your old computer. Of course you will transfer all of your data to the new Mac and dispose of it on the old Mac. To remove the files, you would normally drag them to the trash and empty trash. Mac data, however, cannot be completely removed in such a way. If you have confidential info, be aware that it can be recovered by special utilities. MacKeeper's Shredder tool won't let this happen. It will use advanced shredding algorithms to fully erase your top secret files, leaving no chance to any data recovery software.
Is it enough just to empty trash?
In case you're going to put away with some important or confidential files, it won't be enough to just empty trash. Mac OS is used by many people to store their credit card data, pin codes, work-related info, medical diagnoses, or even deeply personal diaries. Of course you don't want strangers to sneak into your private life, therefore you should take care even of deleted data.
First of all you should be aware that your files don't disappear completely when you empty trash. Mac OS file system is designed in such a way that even the trashed files can be restored. Trashing just frees up disk space for upcoming data, whereas the file info physically remains on the hard drive and can be retrieved if not overwritten by other files.
Shred your confidential data in 3 easy steps:
The files you delete in a usual way seem to be gone after you've emptied trash - but their actual contents still remain on your hard drive.
Can be recovered by specialized software
The Shredder tool not only removes the files' location data but also clears all of their contents.
For maximum security the areas on your drive that hold file contents get overwritten by random bytes.
Advanced users can choose an algorithm they prefer to use for this:
- 35-pass Gutmann
- 7 US DoD compliant passes
- Single pass of random data
Mac Empty Trash vs. Other Solutions
If you wanted to get rid of a paper document so that nobody else saw what's inside, you wouldn't just throw it away. Normally you'd tear it apart or even shred. The same thing can be done with files on your Mac.
There are special shredding tools for Mac that can do much more than the system does when you empty trash. Mac OS secure delete solutions enable you to dispose of files as if they never existed before. These tools can be applied to USB storage devices and external drives as well.
File recovery utilities use signals from the drive's magnetic field to recover data. To suppress these signals, shredding tools employ advanced algorithms with specific patterns that apply alternating magnetic fields to the drive surface.
Despite its apparent complexity, the shredding process is fast and safe. For many secure delete solutions a couple of clicks would be enough to activate it.
