Thiw is a question I have been meaning to ask for a long time. Firstly when data is removed from a flash drive for example, by deletion or formatting of said location, where do all the data bytes go? Secondly what is the most thorough means of removing data? Deletion, Cutting, or formatting?
Data Removal and/or deletion

Recycle bin then when you empty that the data in there gets erased as best as is possible depending on the method used
Of the three options that you mention formatting the device would be best, you could alternatively use something like DBAN to wipe the device, do be aware though that trained security experts and data recovery experts can still find data on drives that have been wiped.
