it's top secret

There's software to recover deleted files or what's been in trash but is there also a way to make sure deleted files can't be recovered ? Files were deleted but not safe, not overwritten or so.. Is formatting the only solution ?

thank you!

You can use "Secure Empty Trash" which overwrites the files in the trash with random 1s and 0s numerous times. You can read more about it here.
