Transparent Wiping logging
Transparent Wiping task can generate detailed progress report. The name of the logfile is specified on
Log file page of Transparent Wiping task window.
Log Viewer utility allows viewing the process while it is running.
The procedure of Transparent Wiping consists of two steps:
- Interception of 'Delete' operation and moving the file to BCWipe temporary folder. This step is performed by special low-level
driver (fsh.sys). After moving the file the driver reports to the logfile: file queued for wiping.
If the driver reports that the file was not moved, it specifies the reason. For example,
the file is in exclude file list. Additionally, FSH.SYS reports the name of the process
that launched the 'Delete' operation. This field is helpful for setting up an Application Filter.
- Wiping the file. The step is performed by standard BCWipe application. It reports time, code of the wiping process, file name and the result of wiping.
