Update :up to 6.14. 10-beta everything is fine. Higher levels do not work.

Tap on 3-dots menu > Show hidden. If they are system files, set system_files=true in the advanced settings of the bookmark.

As far as I know, an internal control unit of the flash memory ensures that other cells are used for each write event in order to save the memory cells. To systematically clobber single files by "shred" or "wipe" is impossible. Moreover, flash memories contain additional spare cells that can't be reached by overwriting of the complete device. I'm not a technician and collected this information from Wikipedia (e.g. flash memory, flash memory controller or shred) and searching the web. It's pretty interesting if you search for "how to securely wipe/erase flash memory". It seems that at least Linux provides a tool: hdparm.

All you're actually accomplishing by attempting to overwrite a file multiple times is speeding up the wear on your memory (and yes flash memory does wear out, although it's highly unlikely to happen before you replace the phone. Modern flash memory can last a very long time before it goes bad on you. It has a limited number of write cycles before it starts to go bad and the wear leveling algorithms spread the writes evenly over all the cells ).

Thanks for the info. My information is older then (I mean too old, got updated by your new info). As I ever try before, secure erase/shred using some cleaner software (I don't remember which one I try), can render the file in microsd/flashdisk unrecoverable by program such as recuva. If I delete it manually, recuva still can recover the file immediately. I ever accidentally format a wrong 8 GB flashdisk (6 GB data inside) and recover the whole files immediately to full intact as before. If I shred/secure erase (really forgot using which one), the files name become randomized and when try to recover, it will show 0 byte size. Probably this depends on the filesystem too. Both flashdisk and microsd are FAT32. I haven't tried yet with MiXplorer, will try it when I have the chance. To lazy to pull the microsd out just to test this

While in vfat and ext4, as the one used by most android now, there is still no full program can recover those. I wish to know too if there is. Most of the software/app claim they can do it, but simply scamware. But i ever experiment with older android, a qualcomm MSM8610 device, which still support backup full partition thru emmc raw tool. I try to delete something in the internal storage (/sdcard0/), then take full 4 GB raw backup of the file. Then try to recover file directly from the raw img file using raw format recovery, the file is still there!!! So it is only possible to recover the file if we can dump the raw img of the nand flash, which is kinda impossible for new devices (unless we have access to forensic tools). I don't know if shredding the file using MiXplorer can really shred it completely.

Right. The internal pointers and file names may all change but the actual data may still reside someplace. If you were to dump all of "unused" storage you would find the "erased"data. At least until the wear leveling algorithms get around to reusing those cells for another write. Fstrim is another factor - it refreshes the cell information so that cells that have been recently released are marked as available for reuse. This happens on its own but may take some time

Now the task Title has no issue thank you!
But after setting an autotask and saving it with "save" button no task was running. I had to force close Mix from Android app settings and restarting Mix for running my autotask succesfully! In the previous build the task was running after first save. Anyway I will make some more tests and reporting the results if something is wrong.
Thanks a lot!

@HootanParsa found another issue with autotask. I'll try to explain..
Scenario: you set 3 new autotask with 3 different title and time interval setted to none. This means that you have to run the task manually from task list, opening the edit task window and clicking the save button.
This run the task and close the edit task window and the task list window appear again.
The issue is that the task list windows do not refresh the content and if you repeat all the 3 tasks manually then the task list shows the tasks but if you try to open one for editing, it has different title in edit window. So I think every time a task run it shift up to the top of the list but the list do not refresh all the text for this task. So after some running the list got messed up. Hope is clear enough... Thanks

Hey, I can't find MiXplorer on XDA Labs, only the addons are there. Why?

Strange....the app has been removed. Maybe @HootanParsa is going to upload it on playstore now? But why shouldn't it be available on XDA anymore?
You find the latest build in the OP of this thread too.
