Author Topic: original trashfile  (Read 13622 times)

I'm using the option /c and I notice the program creates a new .clean file which it renames to the original filename after deleting the original file. IC.

So then ,an option to either move the original file which has been cleaned to a new file to the recycle bin, or either rename the original file to .original trash whatever you pick. Reason: ability to securely delete the original file.

Simply deleting the original file causes also a sort of trash.

Great program btw!

Just use the /B option in combination with /C. It will rename the original file to .bak before renaming the .clean file to the original filename:

TIDYMP3 /C /B TheFile.mp3

Will result in two files:

TheFile.mp3.bak - The original file
TheFile.mp3 - The cleaned file

This way no 'undeletable' files will remain, and you can securely delete the .bak file (e.g. overwrite with random data).
