Windows Volume Shadow Copy + Secure Delete = Insecure Delete

  1. If you “securely†delete a file that has been backed up with Windows Volume
    Shadow Copy, then it is still possible to retrieve the file from the backup

    Why can’t you remove it from the backup? Because it’s in an opaque,
    proprietary format inaccessible to standard file-manipulation tools.

    This is why something like rsync is so much simpler to deal with.
