It is quite possible that disk erasing programs do not delete the
data. But this is almost certainly the result of a bug with the
programs in question. It is quite difficult to selectively overwrite
certain files on a hard drive --- remnants of the files are left in
non-obvious locations (like swap space). However, it is quite easy to
overwrite the entire contents of a hard drive. To date, that has
NEVER been a public demonstration of data recovered after it was
overwritten.
