Deleting Electronic Files Once and For All

Just hitting the delete button does not erase a file or email from your system. There are companies that specialize in the recovery of electronic information, such as:

Merrill Corporation - EFDTM electronic file discovery

Ontrack Data International, Inc. - "offers service and software options to help you find the electronic information you need for use in legal matters."

Maintain control of your documents: One of the most interesting document control and deletion products is provided by Authentica. Their PageRecall service "is the only solution that lets you keep control of your valuable intellectual property after it's delivered across the Internet. PageRecall is ideal for protecting all types of confidential documents including: subscription-based content, merger and acquisition details, prototype design specifications and legal documents."

Here are some utilities that promise to wipe out all traces of a file from your system.
