Is there a way to find and identify deleted files from your computer, such
as deleted emails. If so, how do you find them, and how do you get rid of
them? Thanks

When you delete mails, and they are deleted from the Deleted folder in your
email program, they are no longer in your system.

This is false. When you delete a file it's simply marked as being free to write
over. Until that file is written over, it can still be recovered. And to take
that one step further, data recovery companies can recover files that have been
written over many times.

Empty your email program's trash bin.

Maybe. I know that in Windows 98, anyway, look under C:\Windows\All
Users/Identities. If you've only got one email identity there should only
be one listing. Click on the rather long number/letter combination and
poke around under Microsoft/Outlook Express. I'm only guessing because
you didn't indicate what OS or mail reader your using. Hope this helps.

Matthew is right:

This is false. When you delete a file it's simply marked as being free to
write
over. Until that file is written over, it can still be recovered. And to
take
that one step further, data recovery companies can recover files that have
been
written over many times

By running Defrag you will make the Hard Drive contiguous...filling up the
open spaces,,,Scandisk run is the topping on the cake to make it harder for
recovery specialists to copy what has been deleted.

HTH

But, if it's confidential, important or something yoou don't want others to
know, DON'T put it on the web.

If you use Norton's or Mcafee...diable any "protect" feature. If you don't
what U delete from your computer will be protected and available for all to
see.
