To permanently delete files in Mac what you usually do? Generally you first send it to the trash and then you empty the trash. But do you know just emptying the trash in this manner is not sufficient in order to permanently delete a file from Mac’s hard disc. The deleted files in this way still can be recovered unless the sectors are overwritten by other files.

It’s not a big problem if the files the user trashed were not that important. But what if they contained some confidential information, such as the user’s credit card number or pin code to some ATM cards? It wouldn’t be much fun if someone else got access to the Mac and retrieved this info.
