File Browser

KillDisk includes a built-in File Browser for examining the contents of disks for verification purposes, for hard drives' selection control or for erased files validation after erase . Details on using this feature are discussed in this section.

Opening the Browsing View

To browse the contents of a specific disk simply select the disk and click File Browser in toolbar button or select the related command from the context menu.

Figure 3: Deleted Files in the File Browser

Grey files indicate deleted files have not been sanitized. These files are recoverable. Running KillDisk's Wipe operation ensures these files are unrecoverable and make these gray files disappear from the File Browser.


Found deleted files appear in their original directory (before they were deleted). The ! Lost & Found ! folder is a virtual directory created for found deleted files with not discovered directory information.
