How do i shred deleted user account

I have deleted user account, but want to shred it. I probably should have shredded documents folder first. How can I make those files non retrivable?

  1. afaik, the documents and application settings are stored under C:\Documents and Settings\<username>

    if you shred delete that folder the files won't be able to recover.

    as far as whether there's any other entries, there's definitely a record of a user account in the registry, but it should be deleted once the user is no longer present. But I'd recommend to run a registry clean up after account deletion to make sure.

    if there's any other windows directories that have account relevant information, I'm not aware of them
