If I use Killdisk click here to erase my hard drive, then restore from the USB drive, will the erased data be in the restore?
software that allows you to destroy all data on hard and floppy drives completely.taken from link,answers your question really..
Thanks, sorry, I didn't explain very well.I have saved a copy of the drive before using Killdisk. Is the deleted but not overwritten data in the backup?
Depends how you backed it up - but anyway i doubt it..
What exactly have you saved and what media
Norton Ghost 9, full backup.
Disk imaging programs don't seem to restore deleted files - can't see why they would. I've never tested my True Image to see if it does. However deleted file shouldn't pose a threat.If you are suing Imaging software it's also pointless running the kill-disk software as the Imaging Software will destroy the old data on the partition anyway.
I'm not suing anyone. Can't get Killdisk to work, anyway :-(
No it doesn't (or at least as I am aware of).I also use "Active KillDisk" to format a drive, but use Acronis for backups.Should be the same for Ghost as well... :-)
think what paulb2005 is saying if you have used ghost 9 ,to make a backup, there is no need to run killdisk as your backup will erase all on c drive, then replace from the image you have created.
That's the problem : the 'deleted' data is not erased by the backup. It is still there, but Windows can't see it.
