Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Overwrite hard-drive free space with random numbers to help complicate deleted file recovery with this simple freeware app. No File Recovery's dialog-sized interface needs only a single pull-down list and a pair of buttons for program operation. You're not going to need a manual to figure out this app.

Operating No File Recovery takes only a couple of clicks. You merely use the pull-down to select a drive, and press the Begin button. This app proceeds to lay down random numbers free block by free block. It isn't lightning fast, but a percentage completed indicator helps users gauge program finish. It's easy to stop the app before completion and restart the process at another time. However, the app can't return to the point where it was interrupted. Program speed is improved if all other apps are closed during the process.

Overwriting free space and deleted files with random numbers may not stop the FBI from recovering your deleted files, but No File Recovery should block nearly anyone else from uncovering your deleted data.
