R-Drive Image restores images or individual files and folders from images to original drives, new drives, any other partitions, or even to free hard drive space on the fly. Partitions, being restored can be resized, and existing partitions can be deleted and/or erased, moved, or resized. Entire hard drive images can be restored to another drive, shrinking/expanding as needed.

The only way to ensure that deleted files, as well as files that youencrypt with EFS, are safe from recovery is to use a secure deleteapplication. Secure delete applications overwrite a deleted file'son-disk data using techniques that are shown to make disk dataunrecoverable, even using recovery technology that can read patterns inmagnetic media that reveal weakly deleted files. SDelete (SecureDelete) is such an application. You can use SDelete both to securelydelete existing files, as well as to securely erase any file data thatexists in the unallocated portions of a disk (including files that youhave already deleted or encrypted). SDelete implements the Departmentof Defense clearing and sanitizing standard DOD 5220.22-M, to give youconfidence that once deleted with SDelete, your file data is goneforever. Note that SDelete securely deletes file data, but not filenames located in free disk space.
SDelete is a command line utility that takes a number of options. Inany given use, it allows you to delete one or more files and/ordirectories, or to cleanse the free space on a logical disk. SDeleteaccepts wild card characters as part of the directory or file specifier.
Securely deleting a file that has no special attributes is relativelystraight-forward: the secure delete program simply overwrites the filewith the secure delete pattern. What is more tricky is securely deletingWindows NT/2K compressed, encrypted and sparse files, and securelycleansing disk free spaces.
Cleaning free space presents another challenge. Since FAT and NTFSprovide no means for an application to directly address free space,SDelete has one of two options. The first is that it can, like it doesfor compressed, sparse and encrypted files, open the disk for raw accessand overwrite the free space. This approach suffers from a big problem:even if SDelete were coded to be fully capable of calculating the freespace portions of NTFS and FAT drives (something that's not trivial), itwould run the risk of collision with active file operations taking placeon the system. For example, say SDelete determines that a cluster isfree, and just at that moment the file system driver (FAT, NTFS) decidesto allocate the cluster for a file that another application ismodifying. The file system driver writes the new data to the cluster,and then SDelete comes along and overwrites the freshly written data:the file's new data is gone. The problem is even worse if the cluster isallocated for file system metadata since SDelete will corrupt the filesystem's on-disk structures.
The second approach, and the one SDelete takes, is to indirectlyoverwrite free space. First, SDelete allocates the largest file itcan. SDelete does this using non-cached file I/O so that the contentsof the NT file system cache will not be thrown out and replaced withuseless data associated with SDelete's space-hogging file. Becausenon-cached file I/O must be sector (512-byte) aligned, there might besome leftover space that isn't allocated for the SDelete file evenwhen SDelete cannot further grow the file. To grab any remaining spaceSDelete next allocates the largest cached file it can. For both ofthese files SDelete performs a secure overwrite, ensuring that all thedisk space that was previously free becomes securely cleansed.
On NTFS drives SDelete's job isn't necessarily through after itallocates and overwrites the two files. SDelete must also fill anyexisting free portions of the NTFS MFT (Master File Table) with filesthat fit within an MFT record. An MFT record is typically 1KB in size,and every file or directory on a disk requires at least one MFT record.Small files are stored entirely within their MFT record, while filesthat don't fit within a record are allocated clusters outside the MFT.All SDelete has to do to take care of the free MFT space is allocatethe largest file it can - when the file occupies all the available spacein an MFT Record NTFS will prevent the file from getting larger, sincethere are no free clusters left on the disk (they are being held by thetwo files SDelete previously allocated). SDelete then repeats theprocess. When SDelete can no longer even create a new file, it knowsthat all the previously free records in the MFT have been completelyfilled with securely overwritten files.
The reason that SDelete does not securely delete file names whencleaning disk free space is that deleting them would require directmanipulation of directory structures. Directory structures can have freespace containing deleted file names, but the free directory space is notavailable for allocation to other files. Hence, SDelete has no way ofallocating this free space so that it can securely overwrite it.

14 Jan 2023 GrandPerspective 3.0.1 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge.It fixes just one bug. It was not possible to load scan data files larger than 4 GB.Now it is, but it is still not recommended though as it is slow.
10 Jul 2022 GrandPerspective 3.0.0 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge and the App Store.Most notably, it includes the ability to quickly refresh a view.This functionality is very similar to re-scan but is much faster;refresh only re-scans the contents of folder that have changed since the previous scan.Implementing this functionality triggered significant changes to the implementation, which is the reason for bumping the major version.
17 Apr 2022 GrandPerspective 2.6.3 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge.It includes various fixes and one minor feature improvement: the progress panel shows folders where significant time is spent.
3 Feb 2022 GrandPerspective 2.6.2 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge and the App Store.It fixes the known issue (unwanted black pixels during zoom-in animation) introduced in Version 2.6.1.
29 Jan 2022 GrandPerspective 2.6.1 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge.It now animates changes to the tree map view.In particular, when you zoom in or out and when you change to the focus, the change is animated.
16 Jan 2022 GrandPerspective 2.6.0 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge.It provides keyboard navigation. Very useful. Why did this take so longAlso minor improvements to the progress panel and selected item visibility.
21 Nov 2020 GrandPerspective 2.5.4 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge.It features only one change but a notable one.After fifteen years, there's a new icon; it complies with the new Big Sur guidelines.I hope you like it.For those that liked the old icon, fear not, it's still used as a logo at various places.
15 Nov 2020 GrandPerspective 2.5.3 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge.It is released as a Universal App so that it can also run on Apple Silicon.It also improves support for macOS Big Sur. Most notably, the toolbar has a new look and feel.
20 Sep 2020 Two significant milestones have passed.First, GrandPerspective's first release was exactly fifteen years ago.Second, it has been downloaded more than two million times.Hip, hip, hurray!
5 Jul 2020 GrandPerspective 2.5.2-L1 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge and the App Store.The only change with respect to Version 2.5.2 is that the translations in Chinese, German, Italian, and Turkish are fully complete again.In other words, the text for the features newly added in Version 2.5.2 is now also translated.
28 Jun 2020 GrandPerspective 2.5.2 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge.It improves the selection logic for filters with multiple tests.It also includes updated Chinese, German, Italian, and Turkish translations.
21 Jun 2020 GrandPerspective 2.5.1 has been released and is available for download from Sourceforge.It lets you quickly search files by name.It also includes drawing (performance) improvements and fixes some crashes. 153554b96e
