I ran "disc investigator" and found that the subject heading and E Mail address of every E Mail I have sent is still on my hard disc. I have run several eraser programmes but the details are still on the dis (as it may be on yours). Does anyone know how to delete. Thankd
I use AOLand they were deletd. What appears to beleft is the address and teh subject of the E Mail but not thye content. I have also found that all the spam Mail I have received is shown in the sasme way
As the pc boots look for the manufacturer of the hard disk.... or go into the setup/bios the name will be there.... then go to their web site and look under downloads ..... there is normally a floppy disk download there to clean the disk.
It will need to be partitioned and formatted afterwards though.
Before diong this it may be worth copying a whole data cd into a folder on the desktop.... then delete the file remember to remove it from the recycle bin... now Defragmenting the disk as the file movement may overwrite the data still there. Then check with disc investigator
