When you delete sensitive files from a disk on your computer, the operating system (for example, Windows or Linux) does not erase contents of these files from the disk - it only deletes 'references' on these files from filesystem tables. Contents of the deleted file (or file's body) continue to be stored on the disk and can be easily recovered using any disk tool utility. Wiping is a term used to describe a process of shredding contents of a file or disk space. It is impossible to restore any data that has been properly wiped.
