So here is a tool that removes the files from your disk completely and permanently.This process is called shredding and the tools used for this are called shredders.This tool here is called Eraser.

Eraser is a secure file deletion tool that allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with sophisticated patterns (Gutman, USDoD and others). You can simply drag and drop files and/or folders onto the on-demand eraser, use the convenient Windows Explorer right-click extension or use the built-in scheduler for automated wiping of unused disk space, browser cache files etc. Easy to use and secure!

6. Click OK
7. You should see a new task listed in the Eraser window
