I am fairly new to Linux but all I can say is I love it!!! :D
Anyways, I am trying to securely erase 1000s of files from my harddrive because new year is approaching and I want a fresh start to life. As in remove toxic files, toxic photos etc
I am currently using the Linux
wipe command as in
sudo wipe -rcfbut it is taking FOREVER.
I believe because it is doing a wipe 34 times according to
Guttmans Algorithm. I appreciate it is good but are there any quicker alternatives that are safe deletion. I am new to it all as in cyber security but I learnt worrying enough that doing the
rm command on Linux or even permanently deleting from Windows recycle bin isn't safe and is still recoverable as it just hides the files. Hell I am recovering old files haha of my younger self
