System Mechanic Overview

As SDDs rely on flash memory, this makes storing, retrieving, overwriting, and deleting data fast and simple. This means that as soon as you click ‘Delete’ on a file, it can be gone in an instant.

If you are looking to delete files from an SSD in order to sell or replace your SSD, you will want to consider:

  • Formatting the disk (if it is a local drive), or
  • Using the SSD manufacturer’s own utilities tool (which can usually be downloaded for free on their website) to erase data from the SSD

These are often the safest and quickest ways to erase data from an SSD.

Clean up and optimize your Windows PC with the award-winning System Mechanic. Enjoy better performance, increased speed, and more processing power in seconds.
