In today’s world, data is everything. And, disclosure of critical, sensitive data like personal photos, videos can result in monetary, reputation, or business loss to an individual or an organization. Sadly, many computer users are unaware of the fact that Windows doesn’t remove the deleted data permanently. Even a quick formatted PC or external storage drive is not safe to dispose of, resell, or repurpose. As, there exists Photo Recovery Software that can recover formatted, deleted, or inaccessible multimedia files from such situations through its advanced signature scan algorithm.
So, to erase your data securely and protect data privacy, you need an advanced data erasure tool.
