    You know how when ever the FBI comes to your house to arrest you for computer crimes (kiddie porn) they always take your computer but they always seem to be able to recover anything even if you deleted it, well yesterday i tried to install dos on another partition but instead for going for F it went to C resulting in me loosing everythings. Then i had to reformat and reinstall

    Is there anyway to get my stuff back?
    Ohh noo!!! I make dribbles!!!

    that's a nice site you have.

    But now, here's the real question. How would I go about permanently deleting all of those "hidden" files (preferably without damaging the files I already have on my harddrive). Thanks!

    the only way i know that you can do something like that is with a low level format, but that will destroy everything on the whole drive. you cant be selective with low level, but you can get programs like ashampoo that have a built in file wiper that will wipe user-selectable files completely and totally non-recoverable. (that takes about a week though, ) just keep overwriting the drive, the data will get so corrupt, that it wont come back. and why are you concerned about it anyways, a good gasoline fire can fix the problem quicker than a prgram can, lol

    well yeah, I have reformatted and overwritten quite a bit. I guess I'll just have to resort to the gasoline if something goes wrong
