No Traces with a Drive Scrubber

The other day Papsie and I watched Safe and the story revolved around a talented and intelligent girl that can memorize numbers and is very good at mathematical equations.  The leader of the Triad mentioned something like he would like the girl to remember a set of numbers because computers leave traces.  I instantly wanted to be in the movie and tell the old man that he can have a clean hard drive with a drive scrubber.  If he wants all the data in it can be erased that it can never be recovered, it can be done.

I do not know if the leader of that criminal gang will believe me knowing that these types of hoodlums do not usually trust easily (that is how they are portrayed and I think there is truth in it).  However, the writer/researcher failed in this aspect. Or the idea that wants to be conveyed is that crooks do not have time to learn but kill and do bad?  But at this point in time and age, technological knowledge is not new even, I bet, even among rogues and bandits.   They missed this point.

To summarize, we enjoyed the movie anyway.  Action-packed movies is what Papsie digs like that one where Liam Neeson starred.
