How to safely erase content from CH+S's database?
« on: August 31, 2008, 01:12:04 PM »
I realized I have some sensitive info there... How do I permanently and completely erase it. Just by erasing the database completely ?  :)

yeah im afraid if you need it permanently/unrecoverably ERASED then what you need to do is exit CHS
and then wipe the files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Clipboard Help+Spell\Database\
and maybe also wipe your backups in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Clipboard Help+Spell\Backups\

OK, thanks mouser.
Being able to encrypt the database would have been a good option too, but, unless I'm mistaken, I guess it's not possible... right?
