The files you place on your personal computer or other digital storage device such as an Apple iPod are very often created and placed for your eyes only. Even though the files you save might be extremely benign and innocent, you may still wish to erase files from iPod memory and other digital device storage in such a manner as they can never again be opened and read. This is certainly true when storing personal photographs on your iPod. Remo Software has made excellent programs available to erase files from iPod memory.
These programs, sometimes referred to as file shredders, overwrite the areas containing any files you wish to delete in such a way as to permanently scramble the original file content. This same excellent program will assist you to wipe unused space from your computer’s hard drive or for that matter any digital media storage device connected to that computer. Sometimes we give away our used computer when purchasing a new one. The only way to be certain that the new owner of the PC does not use a data recovery tool to read all of your private information or view private digital photographs is to use the Remo file shredder program to remove all traces of the data.
