    What Apps are best to 'shred' items when you empty the Recycle Bin?


    I'm sure we all know that if we simply click on 'Empty Recycle Bin', the items are still recoverable. What are the best Apps to 'shred' them for best security?


    I used to use CCleaner but some time ago experts here advised us to uninstall it; it had been bought by Avast and ended up 'bloated' and causing issues.


    I've been recommended to buy 'Eraser'. What do the experts here use, please?


    PS I'm surprised that Microsoft hasn't bought one of these companies.

    :)

    recycle bin

    Hi George,

    To prevent your files from being deleted from the Recycle Bin, we suggest increasing the maximum file size your Recycle Bin can keep by following the steps below:

    • Right click on the Recycle Bin icon.
    • Under the Settings for selected location, select Custom size.
    • Fill up the box for your allotted maximum file size for your Recycle Bin.
    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Recycle bin not emptying

    Maybe here is the solution.

    Right-click the Recycle Bin and choose Properties.

    Make sure that the option "Do not move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted" is not chosen (choose the alternative).
