Overwrite Deleted Files Using Cipher And Eraser

When you delete files from a PC that runs on Windows, the files aren’t really deleted and can even be recovered. The deleted files will still be on your computer’s hard drive until they are overwritten with some new data.

By using applications such as Eraser or CCleaner you can delete the files and make some space on your hard drive. However, there is also an application that comes integrated with Windows, named as Cipher. This application can overwrite deleted files and recover some free disk in the process.

 

  1. How to use Cipher

In order to use Cipher, you will have to open Command Prompt. Even if most of the times, Cipher does its job without any problems, we suggest you to backup your files before taking actions.

Cipher is not a tool to overwrite deleted data, but it can be used to encrypt data too.

 

Opening command prompt

 

To open command prompt on Windows 8.1, press the Windows key + S and then write in the search box “command prompt”. In case you are using Windows 7, click on Start-> Run and then type in the box “cmd” and press enter.

 

For the standard scan you can use the command: “cipher /w:C” where “/w” stands for removing any data from the uncommitted space and the “c” stands for the partition it will scan, which in our example is the C: partition.

In case you want to scan another partition, just change C with another D or whatever the letter of the partition is.

When the scan begins, you will have to wait until the application is cleaning your partition. We suggest you to do this in the weekends, when you don’t have too much work to do on your PC, since this might take quite a while to finish.

When the cleaning finishes, you will find more space in the specific partition and you will notice that your PC runs faster than usual.

 

  1. Using Eraser to overwrite deleted files

If you think that Cipher is too hard to understand, we suggest you another Windows tool that you can use, which is Eraser.

Eraser is an open source application, free and safe deleting tool for Windows. The application can also be scheduled to scan once a week and after you set it, you don’t have to worry about this problem anymore.

Eraser’s features

Eraser is compatible for Windows 2003 (SP2), Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows XP (SP3), Windows Vista and Windows 7.

You can scan whichever driver you want from your PC while in any of these Windows versions. It can erase files, folders and previously deleted duplicated copies and it features schedule deletion of files.

Using Eraser on Windows Explorer 

Most of the people will use Eraser via the Windows Explorer rather then scanning with it. When you want to permanently delete a file, just right click on it and you will notice a two options called Erase and Erase Secure Move.

Use those two new options to permanently delete the files you don’t want anymore on your PC.

Top Tips And Tricks For Google Play

Top Tips And Tricks For Google Play

If you are not using a forked version of Android, you most likely use Google Play Store daily. Whether you want to get a new application, search for one or want to upgrade a current application, you will do that via Google Play Store. However, after you search for an application, the searched text remains in Google Play Store’s history. What you don’t know is that you can delete the search history, manage the automatic updates, add a password to your Google Play account and many more.

Here are a few the tips and tricks that you can do on Google Play

Installing an application that’s not available in your country

We’re pretty sure that you’ve encountered this problem before. This happens if the application is not official available in your region or country. However, you can trick the Google Play Store by using a VPN and connecting with an IP that is from another country, where the application is available.

If you don’t want to use a VPN, you can just get the APK file directly from the Google Play Store and install it. Just make sure the “Unknown sources” are checked off, so that you can install APK files. To enable Unknown Sources, go to Settings->Applications and check Unknown Sources. Keep in mind that by doing this, you put yourself in a big risk, as you can download and install malwares on your Android device.

Android Device Manager

In case you lost your Android, or worst, it has been stolen from you, then by using the Android Device Manager, you can locate it. This is a great feature, but unfortunately it doesn’t come enabled by default. Once you enable it, you will be able to locate your device and even lock it.

Parental locks and restrictions

If your kids usually play from your device, then you should try to restrict what they can access and what they are not allowed to access. As we know, some web pages and some games from Google Play Stores should never land in your child’s hands.

You can use an application such as Kid Mode, which optimizes the device for your children so that they can play their favorite games, but still be limited to specific applications and features of the device. They won’t be able to make calls, send emails, or chat using other applications.

Try a paid application and get your money back

You can try out applications and still get your money back. There are two ways on getting a refund for a paid application that you don’t want anymore on your device. By using the 15 minute grace period, you will be instantly refunded the money you’ve spent or you can use the 48 hours grace period, which may take a bit of time until your account will be charged back with the money you’ve paid for the application.

Grouping Programs on Windows 10

When working on a computer, whether you’re at work or at home, you tend to run multiple programs at once and this might slow down your device and not to mention the distraction from your initial goal and you might not finish what you were doing, on time. To make your life easier, just group all the programs according to type, and it will be simpler to work with one group of programs, while the other will be hidden. Now, you won’t be distracted anymore and the desktop environment will be more “relaxed”. This is possible with a feature called Task Viewer, which comes with Windows 10 and depending on your purposes, you can use it to create multiple desktop environments.

 

First of all, decide upon the programs you’re about to use and launch all of them. They will be in your first group, let’s say the group that consists of programs you need for work.

If the taskbar is hidden, reveal it by moving your cursor toward the bottom of the screen. Then, you’ll have to click the Task View button, which is an icon illustrating two stacked windows.

Right after clicking the button, the operating system will show you a bunch of thumbnails of all the programs that run on the current desktop, plus an Add a desktop button, which you’ll see at the bottom of your screen. To create a new desktop, jut click than button and the system will take care of it.

 

To set an active desktop, just click the thumbnail of the desktop which contains all the programs you’ll use. Click the second desktop thumbnail and you’ll make it active. Inside of it, there will be no trace left of all the previously opened programs. All you need is a new list of programs to fill the desktop.

 

When you’ll need to access the other desktop, to switch between them you’ll have to come back to the Task View and selected the desktop you like. If you need to add another desktop, you’ll notice a plus button.

 

So, when you’re currently in one of the desktops, you will notice some programs having a little highlight below them, which means that you’re opened somewhere else, on the other desktop more precisely. When clicking on the icon, you’ll be sent to the desktop containing those programs.

If you no longer need a desktop and want to close it, it’s very simple. Go to Task View, move your mouse over the desktop that will be closed and just click the X button. Once the desktop is closed, all you opened applications will be closed as well.
