Magnetic resonance imaging. It uses an intense magnetic field to make all the electrons on the hydrogen atoms in your body rotate in the same direction then measures the energy output as they return to there proper direction and energy levels. It then uses this to build a 3 dimensional image of your body.

When I upgraded my PC I erased all folders on my old PC except a large directory containing photos. I created 2 new folders and copied the photo directory into one of them twice. Then I copied that folder into the other folder twice. And so on til the HD was full. It didn't take very long.

I think I overwrote everything.

But he must have had all his office-files in it as well so if he destroyed it his boss or who ever is in charge would go pshyco on him!!

EDIT: Hey I hit 400 posts!

So unless you destroy the HDD you cannot get rid of any file in your computer!

Not really no, complete destruction is the only way to be really sure but you can make data out of reach to the average punter.

'Average Punter' remarked by WarriorScot does that mean average computer-user?
