Remember, if it really worries you, that deletion does not mean deletion in the strictest meaning of the word.

It in effect says to the PC "I do not need that disc space any more so you can overwrite it when you need to" So it is still there if you are determined to find it and have the right equipment. For example there is software which can recover data like deleted photographs provided the data has not been overwritten already by the PC.

There are programs which will overwrite deleted data several times to make them unrecoverable, Spybot has a facility in it but there are others. I do not use software like that, I do not need to.
