    Hello,

    You could use Secure Delete on any (other than those (system) mentioned at the top of the tutorial) selected file(s) and folder(s) to delete and override them.

    You will not be able to recover any files/folders you use Secure Delete on.
    I have lost all important media files I'm giving laptop to the technician for recovering for my important lost media files. So that he can't see secure deleted files? And won't affect old media files?
    Sorry for asking again

    You wouldn't want to use the drive the deleted media files are on. Doing so will make it harder if impossible to recover them.

    Hello,

    It's not needed for the "Secure Delete" context menu.

    If you try to delete something you do not have access rights to, you will be prompted by UAC by default.

    I'm not sure what you are referring to in relation to the "Secure Delete" context menu or "Run as administrator". Please provide more details.

    Hello @WinTenUser,

    Are you talking about using start /min at the beginning of the CMD?

    Have a look at this [ Principle the same ] => How do I Minimize the Command Prompt from my bat file

    I hope this helps.
