Permanent Eraser is a free utility that lets you erase/delete the data permanently from Mac OS X. It overwrites your data 35 times, scrambles the original file name, and truncates the file size to nothing before Permanent Eraser finally unlinks it from the system. The erased data using it can no longer be read through traditional means.
