Like Ray, my skill level is limited to turning the b****y thing on, if it does not do what I expect I turn it off again - always a good ploy.
My only thought from dim and distant memories is that when a disc is wiped, it is not actually cleaned and virtually nothing is removed, all that happens is that the link to access it is wiped so the file cannot be opened by mere mortals.
I THINK that is why and how forensic examination by eg the Police, can find files that the owner thinks have been wiped such as naughty, illegal, images....... From reading fiction by authors that I trust, they seem to suggest that in order to completely wipe something requires special programs, or physically destroying the disc.....
Not that either of those thoughts help you make progress, but it will raise the profile of the thread and someone who actually knows ANYTHING may come along and help.....
Barry ? Where are you ?
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Any comments above are only MY OPINION
and should be read as that.
