Let's assume that I "erased" some file named important.txt. This file is still exists on the hard drive (invisible attribute changed to true), so what I am trying to do is find the important.txt that I just "erased" (like with the Recuva program), and then to replace its bytes with random bytes (i.e. delete important.txt permanently) So I am Looking for software Like Recuva, but not For recovering, or maybe software that replaces the bytes of any deleted file that still exists.

I Just want to wipe "deleted files" permanently. Is there any software that can do that for me?

    It would have been easier if you hadn't already deleted them: askubuntu.com/questions/57572/…, Also check out BleachBit: apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/bleachbit – muru Dec 5 '14 at 16:54
  • yes i know, i could use file shredder :/ – jhon Dec 5 '14 at 16:57
  • Bleachbit "wipes free disk space (to hide previously deleted files for privacy and to improve compression of images)" according to the description, so that might be useful. – muru Dec 5 '14 at 16:58

Bleachbit "wipes free disk space (to hide previously deleted files for privacy and to improve compression of images)" according to the description in the Ubuntu Apps Directory so that might be useful.
