hi
at windows 8 i deleted some files and moved to recycled bin. after that I made recycled bin empty
but as I heard there still are ways to recover deleted files.
which program can I use to wipe the deleted data without option to recover it? i know revo uninstaller is good for programs installs and other setups maybe, but specified files how can I get rid of them permanently without formatting pc?
cheers

Download ccleaner (free version). It has an option to wipe the free space on your drive. If you want to permanently delete a file with it being recovered you can use something like fle shredder to delete it instead of using the recycle bin - download here for free: http://www.fileshredder.org/
