Erase and remove all traces of unwanted files from your PC

You'll be amazed how many individuals contact us saying they trust their operating system, but are very wary of installing new software thinking they are likely to be the victim of malware. However, their trust in their operating system is also their Achilles heel.

Why? Primarily as many people do not understand the definition of security. As an example, when you drag files to your Trashcan, effectively they sit in another location on your hard drive. When you delete the contents of Trash, the files headers are simply removed by your system. They might look like they have been erased, but far from it. Any recovery tool can find (and recover) those files with ease. This makes deleting your personal files important.

Permadelete is a simple tool which will completely erase your individual files or folders. It quickly wipes the files with other data, making it much harder to recover the files.  You can simply drag files onto the user interface or select individual files to erase. And that's about it. No preferences, no options, no wipe settings, nothing.

The UI is slightly strange, too. It's designed in a way which implies you load the program with multiple files before erasing. But as soon as you drag them onto the UI, it asks if you want to erase immediately. It's also unclear which wiping standards are used to erase your files, meaning that the method could be rather basic and easily reversed using powerful recovery tools.

This is the portable version of Permadelete.


Very basic and it's unclear which wiping standards Permadelete uses to securely erase your files, either.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
