Purpose If you clean computer's Recycle Bin, the files and folders are not deleted forever. Anyone can use special recovery software and restore any deleted data.
Yes, this is true. Any deleted file still exists on the hard disk until will be overwritten with other data, for example with data of some other file. Anyone can recover your deleted files when you're away from your PC, or if you sold your PC, or gave it in to repair... The main purpose of Prevent Restore program is to make deleted files and folders unrecoverable. The program interface made as Wizard program, thus newbie can make professional job. Prevent Restore will overwrite all free disk space on your hard disk(s) that contain fragments of deleted files by random data to avoid any possibility of recovery.

While working Prevent Restore takes all free disk space, but when the program finishes free disk space will be returned to it's previous condition. Don't worry about that. This is made to make sure that all possible free space was overwritten with random data. The main reason why it should be done this way - is that Windows writes files to any place on the hard disk - to the end of free space, to the beginning, in the middle...
