    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.

    After U delete RUN Defrag anf Scandisk

    Matthew is right:

    This is false. When you delete a file it's simply marked as being free to

    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.
