Removing porn from hard drives
It's easy to come up with justification for why clearing out old hard drive files,
the unwanted or unused ones, can offer various benefits. How fast your PC operates
during file accesses is partly a result of how many and how large the files are on
the PC's hard disk. This occurs because the FAT tables grow in size and everything
has to work harder when a request is received for a file to be retrieved. We have
to remember also that these files get broken up (fragmented) and this exponentially
reduces drive access time. Data security is also a factor, the more files you have
that you would rather keep secret, there is always a chance that someone else using
the computer might misuse your personal information. Regularly cleaning out your
hard drives will obviously recover space and this might stave off having to buy a
bigger hard drive.
Software utilities for cleaning HDD files come in several varieties. To begin with
we can define the set of free or commercial disk cleanup tools like the free 'DCleaner'
utility that can help remove non-critical files and recover room on the disk. There
are 'PC privacy' tools which delete internet history and delete traces of things
you have typed while searching from IE and Firefox, and some other browsers, tools
such as Evidence Eliminator. Now there is also porn detection software which can
be used to discover the existence of porn and inappropriate material and can manage
the cleanup of the detected objects. A further category of cleanup utilities is the
data erasing program which can overwrite with 1s and 0s, random data remaining on
the hard drive's slack space, so its gone permanently.
There are many software applications available which interpret the HDD analysis &
cleaning process by adopting different methods. One example of this software is the
porn remover type product, you pay for some and others you can download
at no charge. There is usually much is more that that these utilities are able to
do, several of these can also clean up orphaned data, perform automated porn removal,
find unlicensed software installed on the computer, and free space analysis.
