Eraser: Delete Files Correctly
When you wish to retire your old computer, you will do well to delete all files on your hard disk, before giving it away or selling it. However, you should be aware that deletion of files, or even formatting the hard disk, does not remove the data completely from the hard disk. What happens is that the system just removes any reference to the file and the file lies intact on your hard disk, until overwritten by some new file.
 
This is where Eraser comes in. Eraser is an advanced security tool for Windows which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns. This leaves no chance for the data to remain on your hard disk and avoids possible misuse. Eraser is a free tool and can be used on Windows XP, Windows 7, 8, 10 and several other platforms, including servers. So before you chuck out your old machine, remember to delete ALL your data effectively.

    Samsung temporarily halts Galaxy Note 7 production
    Amid reports that some Note 7 replacements have caught fire, the South Korean giant Samsung Electronics Company has temporarily suspended the production of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, an official said on Monday.
     
    The halt is in cooperation with consumer safety regulators from South Korea, the US and China.
     
    "This measure includes a Samsung plant in Vietnam that is responsible for global shipments (of the Galaxy Note 7)," Yonhap news agency quoted an official as saying.
     
    Samsung started selling the Note 7 in South Korea on August 19 but announced a global recall of 2.5 million units in September following reports of some of the devices catching fire while being charged.
     
    The company has encouraged owners of the Note 7 to swap their devices with new ones, but media reports said some new Note 7 in the US and Taiwan had also caught fire.
