    In December 09 just before my Mac crashed and burned and had to have a new hard drive installed I hired a MAC guru to come to my office and help me with many things. He also helped me change the over write settings to MORE securely empty trash. I cannot locate my notes that told me how to do it again. Can/will you assist me in this quest? Walk me thru the steps?

    Thank you in advance,

      I can’t imagine what steps he would have taken. Securely Empty Trash overwrites those bits on your hard drive with zeros. I can’t see how changing some settings would do more than that. Perhaps this was a long time ago, before the current function was available?
