this is going to take forever
3 gigs worth of pictures and thumbnails from a site rip
go make some food, come back
how do you rip sites
12 hours and about half way done
what the fuck. it takes THAT long? with a PC it would take me like 3 min TOPS
edit~ wtf am i thinking, it take like 5 seconds.
I delete like 4.x GB dvd files all the time, it just says "this file is too big for the recycle bin, would you like to permanently delete this file" and I click yes and its done in a few seconds
dont know. these are individual pictures and i'm doing a secure empty so it might take longer
a regular empty wouldve handled that in a few seconds. any reason for doing secure empty? benefits?
no way it could be found again. just to make sure its 100% gone
secure empty always takes a LOT longer.
cleaning out your porn folder, eh
secure empty is gonna put a lot of strain on your HD for that many files
also re: Inferno's post -- secure empty aside, deleting 1 or 2 files large in size is a lot quicker than deleting 100000 files that sum to the same size. The difference is that the file headers have to be removed from 2 files in the first case ("deleting" them as far as the HD is concerned), whereas 100000 headers must be removed in the second case.
that article was spun like a motherfucker
I wish they had kept the original implementation of secure empty, where you were actually allowed to choose the number of passes to make over the deleted files
yeah. they might as well have called it "007 Wipe" or something like that.
