What is the best method to safely delete files?

Just as formatting a disk does not make the data unrecoverable, deleting the files and emptying the Recycle Bin later will not make the files unrecoverable. Although these files will no longer be visible on the computer, with enough knowledge and specific programs it will be possible to recover what has been deleted.
If we want to ensure a complete deletion of files and folders, we must use a solution such as Blancco File Eraser, which will allow us to ensure that what we delete will be permanently deleted.
