WASH ?

Hey

Are you folks reasonably content with the WASH function in ZTree?

I've just had some dialog with a user who was under the impression
that WASH was somehow going to 'empty' the files in his recycle-bin!

I would write this off immediately except he claims that XTreeGold
does this! I find this very hard to believe. I am 99% sure that the
WASH function in XTreeGold (like ZTree) simply writes a temporary file
to fill the disk, effectively overwriting any previously *deleted*
files.

I have tried to explain that files in the recycle-bin are only 'logically'
deleted, but in effect, they are simply 'moved'.

Does have comment on this? ;-)
