Windows diverts only a set amount of disk space to the Recycle Bin. When the total size of it files excess this set amount, the oldest data are deleted. This deletion method, however, is still the Windows' standard and therefore not secure. In case files were deleted from the Windows Recycle Bin, this function would be the only possibility to make sure they were securely overwritten.
